Lee Brice - LEE BRICE'S "DRINKING CLASS" GOES RIAA GOLD
Kicks Off Innovative College Tour Partnership With REVERB
March 25th, 2015 - Lee Brice, 2015 ACM "Single of the Year" nominee, received his second RIAA certification in less than six months with "Drinking Class" certifying Gold as a Digital Single this week. Lee's first sales milestone from his #1 'I Don't Dance' (Sept. 9, 2014) was its title track which made an industry statement by being the fastest Platinum certifying country single of 2014.
As "Drinking Class" rises on radio charts, the "evocative" (New York Times) male vocalist kicks off a headlining tour in partnership with REVERB, a non-profit organization that unites artists and colleges to affect environmental and social change.
Though Brice has supported many causes behind the scenes - including mentoring developing songwriters and artists - this marks the first time the CMA and ACM Song of The Year winner has officially partnered with a charitable organization.
An avid outdoorsman, Brice's Campus Consciousness initiative focuses on outdoor preservation and water conservation, subjects close to the South Carolina native's heart.
"We're hoping to offset the environmental impact of the tour by supporting clean energy projects and using buses and trucks fueled with locally produced biodiesel. I have two sons and I look at this as investing in their future and that of kids around the world," shares Brice.
The first round of dates and campuses include Lee's alma matter, Clemson University, on April 11th. Tickets are available at leebrice.com.
