Lee Brice has the the fastest-rising single of his career this week as the singer-songwriter's latest, "I Drive Your Truck," enjoys a third week as the the most-added single at country radio. Already in the Top 30, the new single is the follow-up to the No. 1 smash, "Hard to Love," which this week earns platinum certification as a million-selling single. It's the second track from the album (also titled Hard 2 Love) to earn platinum status. In June, "A Woman Like You," the new album's debut single also went platinum.

"I can't think of a better way to end the year than this," says Lee. "I'm floored by the support of my friends at country radio and my fans who continue to believe in me ... can't wait for 2013!"

Hard 2 Love has already earned stellar reviews. In addition to being named to The Boot's list of Best Country Albums of 2012, The New York Times placed it in their Top 10 albums for the year, alongside such artists as Frank Ocean, Ke$ha and Taylor Swift. It was also named the Top Breakthrough Country Album of the Year at iTunes.

Lee, who played football for Clemson University in South Carolina, caps off the year in El Paso, Texas, as the halftime entertainment at the Sun Bowl on New Year's Eve. He's already got a slate full of tour dates for 2013. Check them out here.
