at ACM Songwriter Show

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 9, 2013) – A
toast was made in Las Vegas at the stroke of midnight Sunday night to
celebrate award-winning singer/songwriter Lee Brice’s new #1 single, “I
Drive Your Truck”.  The poignant ballad joins his previous 2 number one
songs as singles that also happened to peak the same week as major
country award shows.  “A Woman Like You” went #1 the week of the 2012
ACM Awards.  The follow up single “Hard To Love” hit the top spot later
that year during the week of the CMA Awards, and following suit, “I
Drive Your Truck” reached the pinnacle during ACM Awards week this year.
Curb Records is gearing up for the 4th single, “Parking Lot Party”, off
the current album.

Although a prolific songwriter himself, Brice did not write “I
Drive Your Truck”; however, he knew he had to cut it as soon as he heard
it.  “Every now and then I hear a song that just blows me away,” he
said. “And that song just put me on the floor the first time I heard
it”. Brice’s powerfully raw and emotional offering is the fastest moving
single of his career and is his 3rd #1 single in a row from his latest
album, Hard 2 Love, which includes several songs co-written and
co-produced by label mate, Jon Stone of new duo American Young, which
also includes Kristy Osmunson.

Jon and Kristy joined hosts Dallas Davidson and Don Schlitz and
gave the crowd a taste of their new music at the ACM Songwriters Show. 
Before attending the awards, the duo walked the red carpet where Jon
spoke about his Song of the Year nomination for Brice’s “A Woman Like
You” and they both fielded questions about their highly anticipated new
album, which will be co-produced by Lee Brice and Justin Neibank. The
duo, who have a list of songwriting and producer credits among them,
will release their debut single “Love Is War” to radio this summer.

About Lee Brice:
South Carolina native, Lee Brice’s “I Drive Your Truck” is his
third consecutive number one single off his sophomore album, HARD 2 LOVE
on Curb Records.  It follows the platinum certified single “Hard To
Love”. Its lead single “A Woman Like You” set the pace, earning platinum
certification and chart-topping status. Brice’s previous studio album
LOVE LIKE CRAZY’s title track spawned Billboard’s most played country
song of 2010 and it still holds the record for the longest-charting song
in the history of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Billboard again
recognized Brice as a songwriter for the most played country song of
2011, “Crazy Girl,” which also earned him a 2012 ACM Award for “Song Of
The Year.” Brice’s name can be found in the writing credits for
additional hits recorded by country stars including Garth Brooks, Jason
Aldean, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton and more. Garth Brooks’
“More Than A Memory,” which Brice co-wrote, became the first song on
Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart to debut at number one.

About American Young:
The name conjures up something big, something that stands for
something.  No doubt, it’s creators – songsmiths, producers and
entertainers, Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson declare it this way.  It’s
more than a name.  It’s a movement.  Jon and Kristy both exude an
unparalleled passion for music and more importantly it’s meaning.  They
are seasoned veterans on how music can inherently affect emotion and
even culture.  The collaborative fresh new duo already claim songwriting
credits for hit makers Kenny Chesney, Lee Brice, Rascal Flatts, Blake
Shelton and more.  Recording and writing comes from a deep, poignant
place with a desire to affect global audiences with songs featuring
tight harmonies and storytelling.  “American Young represents a sound
with no boundaries.  We are squarely focused on delivering our own brand
of music and hope that folks will find ours songs everything from
haunting to dramatic and intense to fresh”, says Jon.  American Young’s
genre bending music is set to launch its debut single in 2013.
