Lee Brice’s ‘I Don’t Dance’ Becomes Fastest Certified Platinum Country Single of the Year
Friday night (Sept. 12) is a night Lee Brice will undoubtedly never forget. The singer, who performed before a sold-out crowd at New York City’s Madison Square Garden as the opening act on Luke Bryan‘s That’s My Kind of Night Tour, was given a plaque by the RIAA, naming his single ‘I Don’t Dance’ as the Fastest Certified Platinum Country Single of the Year.
The song, which is the title track of his new album, was initially written for his wife Sara on their wedding day.
“It was a gift to my wife for our first dance, and it said, ‘Man, I didn’t know that I was ever going to really get here in my life,’ but she brought me here,” Brice tells Fox News. “She got me there in the way that I never imagined I could be this happy of a person and happy of a man, so I’ve got a great life right now, and it’s all because of her.”
‘Today’ star, and Brice’s close friend, Hoda Kotb was on hand to help Brice celebrate the career milestone.
‘I Don’t Dance’ is nominated for Song of the Year at the 2014 CMA Awards, which will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 8PM ET on ABC.
Brice will continue his run with Bryan with shows in Texas and Florida this month. See a list of all of his upcoming concerts here.
