Lee Brice is a craftsman, the kind whose boundless desire to hone his skills and relentless pursuit of
perfection are matched only by his humility about the entire process. His new album, I Don't Dance, is
a showcase for his painstaking approach to writing and recording, with his distinctive fingerprints
clearly emblazoned on every element of the album. While Brice is now known as reliable chart-topping
Nashville hit-maker whose 2014 performance on the Academy of Country Music telecast -
where he picked up the trophy for "Song of the Year" - "stole the show" (USA Today), there was a
time when he was only recognized for his work behind the scenes.

He found early success, with songs picked up by established artists like Jason Aldean and Keith Gattis.
Though they may have been sung by other artists, those songs were stories from deep within Lee's
own heart.
"'More Than A Memory' was a very personal song for me," he says of his breakout 2007 track. "I was
thinking about keeping it for myself when Garth Brooks called, and that changed the whole dynamic."
It changed a whole lot of things. Brooks' recording of the track was the first single in the history of the
Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart to debut at #1. Lee's stock skyrocketed in Nashville, and that
same year, he signed with Curb Records and began laying the groundwork for his inexorable rise as
a solo artist.

He released his debut album, Love Like Crazy, in 2009. The title track reached #3 on the Billboard
Country chart and set a record as the longest-charting song in that chart's history. In 2012, he topped
his own success with Hard 2 Love, an album that went Gold and featured three #1 Country singles,
including "I Drive Your Truck," which won Song of the Year at both the CMA and ACM Awards. The
record earned raves from NPR to Country Weekly and found the New York Times hailing him as "a
sensitive macho man," a compliment that perfectly encapsulates both sides of Brice's persona. Hard
2 Love also garnered Lee his late-night debut, a stirring performance of "I Drive Your Truck" on
NBC's "The Tonight Show."

Perhaps the most personal song on the album, though, is the title track, which Brice wrote for the first
dance at his May 2013 wedding. As with so much of his work, the lyrics are inspired by his undying
love for his wife, Sara, but they resonate with a huge audience. Top wedding website The Knot
recently selected it for the "Dream Wedding" they threw for a pair of Boston Marathon bombing
survivors.

"It's my favorite song I've ever written in my life," says Lee, "and I don’t know that that'll ever change."
