Lee Brice is in the September issue of Redbook, on stands now. In it, he talks about the story behind his single "I Don't Dance," marrying wife Sara – and how she feels about the backwards baseball cap. Watch his acoustic performance from the magazine's office here.


Here's an excerpt from Redbook's interview with Brice.  (Read the entire interview here)

REDBOOK: Your new hit "I Don't Dance" is the wedding song of the summer.

Well, it was made to be a wedding song. The whole time I was writing it, I was thinking, This is our first dance. I recorded a live acoustic version when I wrote it—that's what played at our wedding, and those vocals actually ended up on the record. It stayed personal.

RB: Your whole I Don't Dance album has so many songs about the different phases of love.

Look, I'm a party animal. I love to rock out on stage. But love songs are what come naturally to me. I have to work a lot harder at writing big-tempo, rocking songs.

RB: You've been touring with Luke Bryan. When you're back in Nashville, do you and Sara have date nights?

Our date is just being at home. I'm on the road a lot, and it makes us appreciate our time together. I think a lot of people lose that in everyday life—when you come home from work every day, maybe you take for granted the time you have with your family. We don't.

 

Brice's latest album, 'I Don't Dance', releases September 9.

Last night’s sold-out Luke Bryan concert at the Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY was postponed due to a stage collapse that occured after his show this past Thursday.  According to news site nbc4i.com, officers were dispatched to Columbus, Ohio’s Schottenstein Center at about 12:04 a.m. Friday on a report of a stage collapse. The Ohio State University Police Division reported that four stagehands received minor injuries. Kyle Davis, 47, of Columbus; Leonard Devrijer, 49, of Columbus; Andrew Gammon, 26, of Nashville; and Steven Meyers, 41, of Bremen were transported to an area hospital where they were treated and released.  A preliminary investigation suggests that a forklift may have struck the back side of the stage, causing that portion of it to collapse. The accident is still under investigation at this time.

Friday’s show was slated to be the second date on Bryan’s 2014 That’s My Kind of Night Tour, which kicked off Thursday night in Columbus, OH. The tour, which also features Lee Brice and Cole Swindell, stops in Knoxville, TN tonight.


A statement posted on Bryan’s website Friday, reads:  "Tonight’s Luke Bryan concert in Lexington, Kentucky will be rescheduled for Friday, February 21 due to damage sustained to a piece of the stage during production load out after last night’s show in Columbus, Ohio. The damage occurred after the show had ended and no fans were in the building. The tour’s team will make the necessary repairs to the production elements so the tour may continue." Previously purchased tickets for Lexington, Kentucky will be honored for the reschedule date on Friday, February 21st .


Luke called into a Lexington radio station -- the Officer Don & DeAnn show -- to talk about the accident and the postponed concert.  Listen below.

Powerhouse male vocalist Randy Houser has cemented his second consecutive No. 1 single at the top of both Billboard and MediaBase charts with latest smash “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” off his 2013 release,' How Country Feels'. “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” was so popular that it spent two weeks at the top of the Billboard Country Singles Chart amassing a record audience of over 47 million (highest impressions of any song in one week since 2005). The single is his second release from the album and is the follow up to first No. 1 with album title track “How Country Feels.” Both tracks are RIAA Gold-certified, signifying more than 500,000 sold units of each hit song.


I'm so humbled by this support, and I want to thank everyone that helped us get here,” said Houser. “I feel blessed."


Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” was penned by Dallas Davidson, Ashley Gorley, and Kelly Lovelace and was one of the last songs Houser recorded for 'How Country Feels'.


Houser is touring throughout the summer and fall, including a stop in Austin, Texas alongside Lee Brice, Bob DiPiero and Jerrod Niemann for the CMA Songwriters Series. Houser then hits the road with Justin Moore in November for the Off The Beaten Path Tour.


Houser’s record label, Stoney Creek Records, will release the his next single later this summer, but in the meantime, his vocals are featured on the new Kristy Lee Cook single, “Wherever Love Goes.”

“I’m ready to get the ‘Beat This Summer’ tour started and welcome Zippo Lighters out on the road! The Zippo Encore program is a great way to bring some extra time to meet those fans,” says Brice. “I had a lot of fun designing my custom lighter and can’t wait to see them flickering in the crowd every night.”

 

As part of the Zippo Encore Artist Custom Series, Brice is designing two custom Zippo lighters for sale exclusively on the road this summer. One lighter will feature South Carolina’s palm tree and crescent moon flag and the other a wooden guitar with an authentic printed Lee Brice autograph, both designed by Lee himself.

Lee Brice, Randy Houser & Jerrod Niemann Set To Triple Headline Final Night Of 5th Annual Country On The Beach Party

For the fifth year in a row, country music will come together on the scenic beaches of Key West, Fla. to benefit the music industry’s largest foundation that funds leukemia, cancer and AIDS research: the T.J. Martell Foundation. Long-time friends and songwriting buddies Lee Brice, Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann will triple headline the final night of Country On The Beach, as super duo Montgomery Gentry hosts and GAC’s Headline Country’s Storme Warren emcees. Country music fans are invited to attend and get an up-close-and-personal experience with their favorite country stars as they let loose in one of Florida’s most popular vacation spots.  The benefit is scheduled for October 5-8, 2013 at the Reach Resort.  

"We call the growing gang of fans who attend our annual tropical reunions ‘the world's largest dysfunctional family,'” Warren states lightheartedly. “Now that we're adding Lee, Randy and Jerrod in to the mix, that family just got a whole lot more dysfunctional. The hits will be flying from the stage. I can't wait!”

Tickets are available here and proceeds from the weekend’s auctions and special excursions will benefit the foundation. Meet-and-greets with the artists will be available, and fans can expect a laid-back environment where a few ‘surprise’ off-the-cuff acoustic performances are never out of the ordinary.

 

To-date, the T.J. Martell Foundation has raised more than $250 million for research with the help of hundreds of volunteers and music industry professionals, which has been successfully leveraged into several billion dollars in order to support innovative medical research focused on finding cures and supporting early-stage research projects aimed at developing effective treatment. Find more information on the T.J. Martell Foundation here.
