Lee Brice - LEE BRICE MAKES MICHIGAN GIRL'S DREAM COME TRUE AFTER CAR ACCIDENT

July 1, 2013

A 9-year-old Michigan girl is looking forward to meeting Lee Brice after an incident that nearly took her life.

Jaylynn Hiller was hit by a car while leaving a concert in Allegan, Mich. earlier this month. She’s a big fan of Brice, and was upset she wouldn’t be able to see him the next day.

Fox 17 in West Michigan first told Hiller’s story after she was struck by a car driven by an 18-year-old, who police say was under the influence of alcohol. The incident took place after the B-93 Birthday Bash on June 8. Hiller suffered a fractured pelvis.

Word spread to Brice that Hiller was a big fan of his; she especially loves his song ‘I Drive Your Truck,’ because her stepfather was recently killed in a car accident and it was his favorite song. In the days and weeks after her own accident, Brice’s management reached out to Hiller and offered backstage passes to her and her family. Unfortunately, the singer doesn’t have any remaining Michigan dates on his calendar, so the little girl will trek to Ohio, presumably to the July 13 show in Ft. Laramie (part of Country Concert 2013).

Hiller’s mother says her daughter is recovering and that they’re trying to save the money to get to Ohio for the concert.
