Lee Brice News

Country music powerhouse and Curb Records recording artist, Lee Brice, is celebrating his win at this year’s CMA Awards for “Musical Event of the Year” for his single with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now.” The song, produced by late songwriter and producer, Busbee, was a hit for the artists – quickly climbing to #1 at Country radio.   “I can’t even begin to express the gratitude I have for this single moment. GOD IS SO GOOD!,” says Brice. “Quarantined, locked off from the world, my family, my babies, and yet I’ve been feeling more reflective and more grateful in the silence than I have in a really long time. Just when I truly believe I couldn’t ask for a single thing more, y’all hit me with this! Y’all, thank you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Carly – thank you for believing in me! Thank you, CMA! Thank you to my fans for being the best and I’m looking forward to this upcoming year with you all!” Pearce will be performing the single at this evening’s award show alongside Lady A’s Charles Kelley, who is stepping in for Brice while he quarantines at home following a positive COVID diagnosis.  Check out to ABC online for all CMA Award winners and replay performances as we celebrate Country music’s biggest night.

Taylor Swift and the Seven-Year Itch

Taylor Swift News and Tour information from Country Music News Blog
