Country star Lee Brice is a hard man to catch. He sold out a 2015 show at TJ’s Corral at the Carson Valley Inn and it looks likes a packed crowd is headed to the same venue this Saturday.
After reserved seating and party pit tickets sold out, Carson Valley Inn released standing-room tickets last week and a few remain. For information, phone the CVI hotel desk at (775) 783-6606. If you miss your chance to see Brice in Minden, you might just have to watch him on television this summer when he squares off against fellow country star Jerrod Niemann on the Celebrity Family Feud. And the survey says the winning team, also comprised of friends and family members, will score $25,000 for charity.
Brice is a busy man. He has two shows this week in his adopted hometown of Nashville, including a Tuesday appearance at the Grand Ole Opry House on Tuesday, before heading West to Nevada. Brice, 37, originally hails from Sumter, South Carolina.
All roads lead to the top for the singer/songwriter. A new single, “Boy,” will be released this summer. He has recorded three albums for Curb Records, “Love Like Crazy” (2009), “Hard 2 Love” (2012) and “I Don’t Dance” (2014).
The title track from “Love Like Crazy” reached No. 3 on the Billboard Country chart, and “Hard 2 Love” produced three No. 1 singles, including “I Drive Your Truck,” which garnered Song of the Year awards from both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.
He wrote the title track for “I Don’t Dance” as the song for the first dance at his 2013 wedding to his wife Sara. Yep, they danced, and they celebrate their fourth anniversary this month. It was ACM’s Song of the Year for 2014.
“I’ll never settle down/ That’s what I always thought/ I was that kind of man/ Just ask anyone/ I don’t dance/ But here I am/ Spinning you ’round/ And ’round in circles…/ Guess you got me/ In the palm of your hands/ ‘Cause I don’t dance.”
