Lee Brice Joins Garth Brooks on Stage in Boston to Sing ‘More Than a Memory’
Brice joined the country superstar to perform 'More Than a Memory,' the song that Brice co-wrote for Brooks' 2007 'The Ultimate Hits' album with Kyle Jacobs and Billy Montana.
"Bucket list...check," Brice tweeted after the show. "Holy crap...I just sang with @garthbrooks in Boston!"
Apparently, Brooks was enamored with Brice's performance on stage, tweeting back to Brice that "Boston loves you and you deserve it! love you, pal."
'More Than a Memory' was inspired by a heartache in Brice's own life that never went away.
"I woke up one night thinking about the love of my life, an old flame, even though we hadn't been together in eight or 10 years," Brice tells The Boot. "I woke up thinking about her at 3:30 AM and started writing her a letter."
The song became the first tune to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and became Brooks’ first No. 1 single since 1998′s ‘To Make You Feel My Love.’
"The girl I wrote the song about knows," Brice adds. "Actually, she called me. I’d always had a fantasy that we’d get back together. But what if we got back together and this muse I've had for eight years goes away? I want to keep writing songs about her. Songs like that, they come from a real place."
Brooks will continue his World Tour in February with dates in Pittsburgh, Pa., and Detroit, Mich. (See a complete list of shows here.) Brice, meanwhile, is out on tour with Chris Young through early March.
