Lee Brice is poised on the industry high wire with his long-awaited second Curb Records album Hard 2 Love, which drops April 24. After much success as a hit songwriter for 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 creative talents on propelling his own emergence as a superstar.
The first single is "A Woman Like You."
Hard 2 Love follows 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. Billboard remarkably repeated the honor in 2011 with the Brice-penned "Crazy Girl" hitting #1 for the Eli Young Band racking up "most played" song numbers in the country genre, and recently being nominated by the ACM in the prestigious "Song of the Year" category. Notable too in recent chart history, Brice penned Garth Brooks' "More Than a Memory" — the only song in Billboard history to debut at the top of the Hot Country Songs chart.
Co-produced by Lee Brice, Kyle Jacobs, Jon Stone, Doug Johnson, and Matt McClure, some of Nashville's finest writers have been marshaled into creative service on Hard 2 Love with Lee's major league troop "A-Team" writing buddies including Billy Montana, Jerrod Niemann, John Ozier, Jon Stone, and Eric Church. Brice co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks.
1. Hard To Love
2. A Woman Like You
3. That's When You Know It's Over
4. Parking Lot Party
5. Don't Believe Everything You Think
6. I Drive Your Truck
