Hi-99 hosts free Lee Brice concert

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — As if the Indiana summer wasn’t hot enough this year, Lee Brice plans to turn up the thermostat when he visits Terre Haute today.

Fans can expect to hear such hits as, “Love Like Crazy,” “Crazy Girl,” and the No. 1 smash, “A Woman Like You,” as well as other songs from his new Billboard topping album, Hard 2 Love, when he performs at 7 p.m. at Fairbanks Park. Gates open at 6.

Presented by HI-99, Brice will perform as feature artist for the 30th Anniversary Summer Bash. Admission to the concert is free, but fans have had opportunities to win exclusive VIP experiences to the show at local participating businesses.

As one of the most promising voices in country music today, Brice’s popularity is skyrocketing since his Hard 2 Love album release this past April. The album’s title track, “Hard to Love,” is rapidly climbing country music charts and is a follow-up to the No. 1 platinum hit, “A Woman Like You.” Following his breakthrough single, “Love Like Crazy” he has recently appeared on the “Today Show” and with Jay Leno on the “Tonight Show.”

The four-time Academy of Country Music nominee’s music has already left a mark on Music City and is gaining momentum throughout the country. His current tour features performances from coast-to-coast including stops in Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, and St. Louis.

“I made my first album, Love Like Crazy, over six years,” explains the South Carolina native, lifting his trademark turned-around ball cap and rubbing his forehead. “It didn’t feel like a cohesive record, but more like a lot of different songs. And six years later, I’ve grown as an artist and a writer.

“Everything on the new album is very pertinent to who I am right now and where I am in my life. I have some very personal stuff on there, and I had to be really honest with it. Hopefully, folks will see that.”

Certainly radio listeners are already aware of “A Woman Like You,” a married couple’s starkly honest meditation on love and devotion. Immediately upon release, the mid-tempo ballad became iTunes’ number five most-purchased song and sold more than 30,000 copies a week.

“It’s moving faster than anything I’ve ever had,” Brice said. “It’s just so real.”

As co-writer of eight of the 13 tracks on Hard 2 Love, Brice has aimed for strong melodies and smart, emotional storytelling that aims straight for the heart of the human condition: the bluesy sigh of “See About a Girl;” the tailgate reverie of “Parking Lot Party;” the bittersweet tug of love in “Seven Days A Thousand Times;” and the down-on-your-knees gratitude of “One More Day.”
