Lee Brice Unhurt as High Winds Destroy Stage at Free Show
Lee Brice narrowly escaped being hit by a raging storm at a free concert in Kennesaw, Ga. last Thursday (June 13). The singer was performing a show billed as 'Live on the Lot with Lee Brice' at Carl Black Chevrolet when multiple tornadoes and thunderstorms swept into the area, forcing him to take cover with a group of fans.
Brice was doing the free parking lot gig to promote his current single 'Parking Lot Party.' According to Nashville Gab, he had finished performing and signing autographs at the dealership when news came that an EF-1 tornado had touched down in the vicinity.
Brice's buses were pulled into the dealership's service bays, and he and a group of fans sought shelter in the back room of the dealership. Local radio station Kicks 101.5, which sponsored the event, posted the video below to their Facebook page. The clip shows how the ensuing winds destroyed the portable stage Brice had recently performed on, along with some of the gear.
According to a fan who posted to the station's Facebook page, Brice graciously signed autographs while waiting for the storm to blow over.
Fox News in Atlanta reports that the National Weather Service confirmed two EF-1 tornadoes that touched down in Cherokee and Cobb counties last Thursday, accompanied by severe thunderstorms and damaging winds of up to 110 miles per hour.
No injuries were reported at the dealership as a result of storm damage.
