Brice has the penchant of charting his course towards drawing approving whoops
from his fans.  His sound is equal parts
ballads, pop and rock with country thrown in. 
His music is rooted in the traditional way, but has a modern production
that keeps them grooving in the modern times.  He has given us a new country landscape in
which to wander.
splices together wistful pop tune with cool, romantic rhythms in “I Don’t
Dance”.  It’s a refreshing song that simply
builds his inspirations from the ground up. 
It’s a nice song about a man who takes a plunge when he finds the right
woman and creating great moments together. 
Indeed, love is very powerful. 
You know it when you feel it. 
It’s the kind of love that truly nourishes, cares, forgives and
gives.  Surely that’s the time to
dedicate one’s life to another individual.  Lee Brice co-wrote this song with Dallas
Brice demonstrates his vocal color and skill in “Always
The Only One”, belting out his full voice. 
Brice co-wrote this single with Kyle Jacobs, and Joe Don Rooney.  It adds something significant to the ruminations
about the authentic reality that true love exist.   It opens quietly then pushing it to mid-tempo
that builds gradually then explodes into a rock sound.
With some creativity, “Good Man”
attracts thousands of fans.  I
t goes without saying that
these are the verses and hooks that brought listeners together:  “I’ll climb your tower, slay your dragons, fight
your battles girl.  I’ll take a bullet
for ya.  I’ll take on the whole
world.  Don’t even worry bout it. I like
it yeah, I gotcha girl.”  It’s a
fantastic near rap-rock song with captivating violin sound and
irresistible playfulness of the guitar strings.
The highlight, “Hard to Figure Out” leaves us with an
inspiring way of reminding  everyone to
be grateful for what we have.  It teaches
us the value of approaching a difficult situation from a place of gratitude.   The first chorus goes, “She said “just
thank God for everything you’ve got.  I
felt so stupid being mad. After seeing her so sad, I need to check my
heart.  I need to watch my mouth.  Have a little more faith.  A little less doubt, it ain’t that hard to
figure out.”  The drum loops allow us to
rhytmatize our attitude from being self-centered to being others-centered.  A thumbs up to Brice and his co-writers Joe
Leathers and Nicole Witt on this one. So, whether you’re in the mood for a long
drive or quite evening with the family or friends, get a taste of what Lee
Brice is offering in this album.
