Lee Brice, Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann Live Out Lifelong Dream

lee brice

Lee Brice, Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann took a break from their busy touring schedules last night to fulfill one of their lifelong dreams — to perform together on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.

“The Grand Ole Opry experience last night was truly a dream come true,” said Niemann. “Lee, Randy and I are still wondering how we went from sitting in the Opry seats watching our heroes sing to being three guys up there on that Opry stage playin’ music together. We’re so lucky and so thankful!”

“It’s always great to come home to Nashville and play the Opry. It’s a huge honor and to get to share the experience with my buddies Lee and Jerrod, after all we’ve been through together, made it that much more memorable,” Houser added.
“I love the Opry. I’ve played everywhere and it’s still the only place that makes me nervous – it’s just so special,” Brice told the sold out crowd. “When I got the call to perform, I asked if I could invite Randy and Jerrod to join me, and tonight, with all of you, we’re getting to make one of our dreams come true.”

During an intimate acousitc set, Jerrod Niemann put a six-string twist on his hit, “Drink To That All Night,” and Randy Houser delivered powerful vocals on his current single, “Like A Cowboy.”

To top it off, Lee performed a tender version of “I Don’t Dance,” a song written as a wedding gift to his wife, Sara. As she watched from the wings he belted out the moving ballad to a mesmerized audience.

The song – currently at #3 and climbing the Mediabase Country chart – is the title track to Lee’s third studio album due out on Curb Records, Sept. 9th. Lee is the 16-track project’s chief producer, on which he played over 80% of the instruments, including banjo, drums and lead guitar.

“I got to hang out with some of the brightest, most talented musicians this week,” says Lee. “Everyone in the group came equipped with big hearts, creativity and such a love of music which is exactly what it takes to be able to do this in Nashville.”

Lee will release ‘I Don’t Dance’ on Sept. 9.

ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp was in session this past week in Nashville, Tenn. with campers from around the country participating in a week of activities and excursions around Music City.

The campers wrote the song on Monday during a songwriting session with The Band Perry.

Lee Brice to Release New Music this Fall

Lee Brice I Don't Dance

Lee Brice will release his third studio album, I Don’t Dance, on September 9th. According to Rolling Stone, the project is very different for Lee, infusing lots of different sounds and influences.

“One thing I tried to do on this record is a lot of classic sounds, like on Bruno Mars’ record, but with a lot of hip sounds that he just created in his mind, or whatever it may have been. I love putting classic steel guitar with a classic banjo — all those sounds meshed with new sounds I created in my head.”

I’ve been sequencing this record for a year and a half. Every night, I lie in bed and think about sequencing this album,” he says, rolling his eyes. “I don’t know why I’m so obsessed with that, but I love records that flow and never lose you. It’s like going to a Garth Brooks show. He will come out and do four or five uptempos, and then the show rests…. And then he comes back out, in your face again. A record should be that way, too.”

Who’s excited for new music from Lee??
