In the spirit of Veterans Day, award-winning singer/songwriter Lee Brice will release his new single “I Drive Your Truck” this week. The powerful track is available this Friday and officially goes for adds on Dec. 3, and the very personal music video will simultaneously debut on CMT.
“The first time I heard this song, I knew I had to record it,” said Brice. “It immediately reminded me of my granddaddy and it hit really close to home. When we went to make the video, I wanted to be sure that I made it personal. So, I asked my brother Lewis to play the lead and I am really proud of what he added.”
Written by Jessi Alexander, Connie Harrington and Jimmy Yeary, “I Drive Your Truck” was handpicked by USA Today as their track to download on Brice’s current Hard 2 Love album, and The New York Times described it as “an electric, overpowering song…Mr. Brice sang it vigorously.”
“I Drive Your Truck” follows Brice’s multi-week No.1 “Hard To Love,” which he’ll perform tomorrow on NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” airing at 11:35P CT. “Hard To Love” is the second consecutive chart-topping hit off his sophomore release on Curb records Hard 2 Love. From New York City, Brice will head back to the road with tour dates scheduled this weekend in Lake City, FL (11/15), Westlake, LA (11/16) and San Antonio, TX (11/17).
