Lee Brice - “A WOMAN LIKE YOU” HITS #1 & TOPS BILLBOARD CHART AS NEW ALBUM PREPS FOR 4/24 LAUNCH
April 10th, 2012 – Everything Lee Brice touches career-wise is proving the truth in the old industry adage and country music hit – “when you’re hot, you’re hot.” With his current single “A Woman Like You” hitting the top of the Billboard chart, Curb Records is releasing today a second iTunes exclusive download from Brice’s forthcoming album project, Hard 2 Love. The highly-touted new album will street April 24 with a strong lead-in at retail already established.
iTunes will offer a second exclusive download, “Parking Lot Party,” from the new album package as a “sneak preview” offered by Curb Records followed by a third download to follow on April 17.
Adding to Brice’s industry creds as a creative force to be reckoned with is the recent win of ACM “Song of the Year” honors by the Eli Young Band with the Brice-penned blockbuster, “Crazy Girl.” After a string of huge successes as a hit songwriter putting his words in the mouths of a litany of country music’s most virile chart toppers from Garth Brooks and Kenny Chesney to Jason Aldean and Tim McGraw, Brice is now focusing his stellar hit creating ability on propelling his own emergence as a superstar.
Brice’s 2012 breakthrough to new levels of connectivity with radio and retail is a success story of note. “A Woman Like You” proved Curb’s delivery system in navigating the single to the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, with a blazing track record of over 700,000 digital downloads already sold.
Hard 2 Love will provide the much anticipated studio follow-up to Brice’s critically-acclaimed debut album Love Like Crazy, which spawned Billboard’s Most Played Country Song of 2010 by virtue of its title track.
Seldom away from the spotlight over the past few months, Brice filled a rare and recent high visibility country music co-host slot on the “Today” show. He’s set to guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on May 1 with a major round of high-powered media visits being strategically planned to ignite awareness on the Hard 2 Love launch.
