Lee Brice, Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann took a break from their busy touring schedules last night to fulfill one of their lifelong dreams — to perform together on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.
“The Grand Ole Opry experience last night was truly a dream come true,” said Niemann. “Lee, Randy and I are still wondering how we went from sitting in the Opry seats watching our heroes sing to being three guys up there on that Opry stage playin’ music together. We’re so lucky and so thankful!”
“It’s always great to come home to Nashville and play the Opry. It’s a huge honor and to get to share the experience with my buddies Lee and Jerrod, after all we’ve been through together, made it that much more memorable,” Houser added.
“I love the Opry. I’ve played everywhere and it’s still the only place that makes me nervous – it’s just so special,” Brice told the sold out crowd. “When I got the call to perform, I asked if I could invite Randy and Jerrod to join me, and tonight, with all of you, we’re getting to make one of our dreams come true.”
During an intimate acoustic set, Jerrod Niemann put a six-string twist on his hit, “Drink To That All Night,” and Randy Houser delivered powerful vocals on his current single, “Like A Cowboy.”
To top it off, Lee performed a tender version of “I Don’t Dance,” a song written as a wedding gift to his wife, Sara. As she watched from the wings he belted out the moving ballad to a mesmerized audience.
The song – currently at #3 and climbing the Mediabase Country chart – is the title track to Lee’s third studio album due out on Curb Records, Sept. 9th. Lee is the 16-track project’s chief producer, on which he played over 80% of the instruments, including banjo, drums and lead guitar.
“His style was meticulous … and the result is by far the best album of his career” (Billboard Country Update).
Lee Brice moved to Nashville to chase his songwriting dreams after playing football for Clemson in his native South Carolina. He penned cuts for artists such as Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eli Young Band and Garth Brooks, whose recording of “More Than A Memory” launched Brice’s stock sky-high. In addition to current dates with Luke Bryan, Lee has headlined his own House of Blues tour and opened for Brad Paisley.
