Lee Brice - On Track To Become First Country Artist To Perform Shows In All 50 United States in 2015
Celebrates 50th State on Nov. 15 in Rome, Georgia
August 28th, 2015 - Lee Brice is well known as a headlining touring artist with a unique connection to his fans, so when one of his band mates recently said "you know, we've almost played all 50 states this year," Lee promptly replied with a firm, "Well, let's do it!"
He immediately called his manager and booking agent and the team went to work. "I love connecting with fans and when I realized just how close we were to getting to all 50 states, I just had to make it happen," notes the 6'2" Brice, who is said to be the "hardest working man on Music Row," (American Songwriter). Here's a clip of Lee telling the story in his own words -- https://youtu.be/kgFflmHiHz8
Having kicked off the year with a double ACM win, multiple Platinum and Gold certified singles, a performance on NBC's "The Voice," a feature performance on "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock" (ABC), a USA Today spotlight for his use of Periscope to connect with his fans, and the placement of "Sirens" on the new "MADDEN NFL 16" game and soundtrack, it makes sense that he'd be the first Country artist to perform in all 50 states in 2015.
With the countdown starting today, Friday August 28th, Lee Brice has 12 states to visit with the final being in Rome, GA on November 15th.
In the middle of criss-crossing the U.S., Lee is also slated to perform on the iHeartRadio Music Festival's Daytime Village stage (Sept. 19th) at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena with friends Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, plus Kanye West, Sam Smith, The Who, Coldplay, Demi Lovato, The Weeknd, Duran Duran and Janet Jackson before wrapping up his powerful 2015.
The "evocative, rough-edged singer" (New York Times) recorded his third studio album in Nashville, writing and producing 13 of the deluxe edition's 16 songs, and playing almost every instrument on many of the tracks as well. "Nobody in Nashville writes better love songs right now than Brice," says USA Today. Of 'I Don't Dance' the New York Times says, "the songs are sturdy, the mood aching. That's a noble mode, and a lane Mr. Brice has almost wholly to himself in modern country."
