Brice, Moore announce tour
Tuesday, September 20, 2016
– Lee Brice and Justin Moore will hit the road together in 2017, they announced today.
The "American Made" tour launches Jan. 12 in Indianapolis at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Brice and Moore are co-headlining the tour.
William Michael Morgan and Brett Young will open the shows.
Moore released his fourth album, "Kinda Don't Care," in August with the hit single "You Look Like I Need a Drink" included.
Brice has five number ones to his name including "I Drive Your Truck" and "Drinking Class."
"It's very exciting to get back out there as a headliner," Moore said. "To be able to do it with my buddy Lee is even more exciting. I've been a fan of his for a long time. It's gonna definitely be a party every night. I hope the fans are as jacked up about it as we are."
"When we put this tour together we thought about the fans first," said Brice, who kicked off 2016 with his own headlining "Life Off My Years" tour after being the only country artist in 2015 to perform in all 50 states. "I love playing live, but what's even more fun is interacting with the amazing people in the audience. That's what it's all about. I can't wait to get out there to play the songs everyone already knows but we're also planning to give these audiences a sneak peek into a few songs off the new record."

CD reviews for 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.

I Don't Dance
The cover of "I Don't Dance" features a glam shot of Lee Brice standing in a spotlight, looking more like a pop artist than a country singer. Listeners who prefer their country on the gritty side might be scared off by the pretty cover shot. The music matches the image: pop influenced mainstream country music, in the vein of contemporaries Jake Owen and Kip Moore.

Hard to Love
Lee Brice had a dream run of success with his debut, "Love Like Crazy" - the title track became the most-played song on country radio in 2010. While that set the South Carolina native up for a doozy of a sophomore slump, he sidesteps it with ease. Brice simply has too many weapons - a songwriter's ear, soulful voice and some very able co-writer friends (Rhett Atkins, Eric Church) to veer far off course.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
