About Lee Brice: 
When Lee Brice isn't selling-out arenas, writing and recording songs or building a new brand like American Born whiskey — you'll find him with his wife Sara, two young boys Takoda (9) and Ryker (3), and new daughter Trulee Nanette, born in June. Lee's new single, “Boy," is a tribute to his sons who appear in the song's endearing music video, viewable here

With 11 million in RIAA certified sales — each of Lee's albums has been certified Gold: Love Like Crazy (2010), Hard2Love (2012) and I Don't Dance (2014), with "I Don't Dance" holding a double-platinum certification for single sales. Lee is a Grammy nominee, a CMA and ACM award winner and he's taken five radio singles to #1:  “A Woman Like You," “Hard To Love," “I Drive Your Truck," “I Don’t Dance," and “Drinking Class."  Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney and others have recorded his songs, and he's performed on NBC's Today, ABC's The Bachelor and The Late Show with David Letterman. The New York Times says he's an  "evocative" vocalist and USA Today calls him "one of the finest singer-songwriters country music has to offer."
