(NASHVILLE, TN – July 2, 2020) – As tour dates are paused, Lee Brice is still reaching fans with his music. Lee’s current single, “One of Them Girls,” which was released during quarantine, has proven to be his fastest-rising single to date and currently sits at the #27 spot on the Billboard Country Chart and #24 on MediaBase. The track has received over 31.9 million streams on all digital streaming platforms and is becoming one of fans’ favorite songs of summer.
During last night’s CMA Summer Stay-Cay presented by Budweiser Nitro Gold virtual celebration, powerhouse duet partners, Brice and Carly Pearce, were presented with a plaque cementing PLATINUM status for their No. 1 hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now“. CMA CEO Sarah Trahern was on-hand to present the honor. The pair performed their smash collaboration, which has surpassed 225+ million global streams and is featured on Carly’s self-titled sophomore album via Big Machine Records. The track was penned by Pearce alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana.
“I knew when I heard the song for the first time that this was something special and I’m honored that Carly asked me to be a part of it,” says Lee. “Thank you to all the fans for loving this song as much as Carly and I did recording it and making this a PLATINUM hit.”
“Having songs that meant something to people was always my dream,” expressed Carly. “To see these songs reach such big milestones and see that my music is making an impact on people’s lives is more than I could’ve ever hoped for. I will never take any of this for granted and am so thankful.”
In the variety show style livestream, Brice also performed his song, “Hey World,” which is a stripped-down piano ballad that is a reflection of the emotional toll that the current health crisis has taken. Lee recently performed “Hey World” on the TODAY Show for their Artist Lounge: At Home Series.
