Brice alters tour plans due to Farr surgery

Wednesday, January 27, 2016 – Lee Brice announced today he would replace Tyler Farr as the middle act on his tour with Maddie & Tae, Jerrod Niemann and Clare Dunn.

Farr is on vocal rest due to having surgery to remove a polyp on his vocal cords.

Brice was ready to launch his "Life Off My Years" concert tour with Farr and Dylan Scott starting Feb. 4 in Salisbury, Md. Maddie & Tae, Clare Dunn and Jerrod Niemann will replace Farr. Shows in Southaven, Miss. on Feb. 18, August, Ga. on Feb. 19 and Pikeville, Ky. on Feb. 20 were canceled as a result of the line-up changes.

"Maddie and Tae are the kind of girls a guy can hang out with and girls wanna be, and they are not kidding when they strap on their guitars and own that stage. They've only been at this a little while, but they're fearless and have fun with the crowd," Brice said.

"Clare Dunn. Man she can play that guitar. She's so talented. And Jerrod - he's one of my oldest friends. We came up through the ranks together, as writers and artists. He understands who my fans are, and this is the kind of line-up where when he's out there, it'll feel like exactly the right combination of songs, singing and hitting people where they live."

"Life happens," said Brice. "I always stand by my friends, and I'm grateful that Maddie & Tae, Clare and Jerrod will join me on these dates. Touring with Tyler promised a lot of fun, but knowing this group of artists, I wholeheartedly believe people coming to these shows will have a great time. I can't wait to get on the road and mix it up with these guys. I know I'm ready, and so are the fans."

Missouri-raised Tyler Farr has posted a solid amount of success for a career not a decade old. Apparently, he's the only solo male country artist in the past decade to have their first two studio albums debut in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200. That's pretty impressive, because sophomore slumps are real. But the industry has bounced Farr around like he's going through a cloud in prop plane seat. Whether it's label mergers or departures, he's now on Jason Aldean's ...
CD review - Lee Brice Lee Brice's self-titled album is the kind we wish Zac Brown was still making. Granted, it doesn't include the faux reggae and jam band tendencies. It does, however, feature a bevy of heartfelt songs about the things that matter most in life. Best of all, its fine content is matched to high quality songs and performances. "What Keeps You Up at Night," which reads like a dirty laundry list of every insomniac's nightmare, opens the disc. The single "Boy" is a ...
CD review - This Ride One thing you can never call Jerrod Niemann is boring. When he's at the top of his game, there are few singers in Nashville better suited to bridge the divide between pop and country. At the other side of the spectrum, something like "Donkey" may fail, but at least it fails spectacularly. "This Ride" continues to show off Niemann's ease at adapting pop sensibilities into country music, but his misses seem a bit more formulaic than past efforts. ...
