Lee Brice Has Plans for a ‘Beautiful’ New Year
Lee Brice is reaping the rewards of all of his successes in 2010, including his first Top 3 single, 'Love Like Crazy,' which topped Billboard's year-end Hot Country Songs chart as the most-heard country song of the year. The South Carolina native is also looking forward to building on those successes in the coming year.
Lee has a few things on tap, including a pair of tours, including one with his pal Jerrod Niemann, as well as some other cool writing projects. "As a songwriter, we've got a few things that will be coming out," Lee tells The Boot. "I wrote 'Beautiful Every Time' and we're really excited about that. And then I wrote a song that the Eli Young Band is putting out called 'Crazy Girl,' and we have a chance -- a good chance -- on possibly getting a Kenny Chesney single early in the year. It's a song on his new album called 'Seven Days.' So, we'll see about that. That's something you never count on until it happens."
"As a songwriter, I'm looking forward to 2011, because I don't really get to write nearly as much as I used to being on the road and not having as much time or energy," he continues. "But the writing I have been doing is hopefully more quality than quantity, and I'm still going to have two or three singles out this next year, as well."
Lee, who is currently climbing the country charts with 'Beautiful Every Time,' returns to the road with a show in Farmington, N.M., on January 19.
