Lee Brice released his fourth studio album on Friday, a self-titled project which he says is his most personal album yet. The 38-year-old and father of three wrote 11 of the 15 tracks on the project, recounting his family, his friends and his gratitude for the life he is living. Whether it’s “Boy” which is an ode to being the father of two young men or “The Best Part Of Me” which closes out the record and is dedicated to his baby girl, both showcase the love a father has for his children, a reality Brice is currently living.
The album features plenty of songs that will lend well to Brice’s live show including “American Nights”, “I Don’t Smoke”, “The Locals” and “Little Things”. Brice has a way of engaging fans with his powerful voice, commanding stage presence, and anthemic songs to sing-along with. While listening, you can see fans holding up a beer or waving an American flag in a packed venue.
A definite stand-out is “Songs in the Kitchen” a nostalgia-filled tune set to a background harmonica groove.
“All my dreams came true, my songs took me far away / now I’m singing em every night in these bright lights upon this stage / if you catch me close my eyes, every now and then, to tell you the truth / I’m probably just missin’ songs in the kitchen / songs in the car, songs from the heart.”
Each song on the record reflects a different sentiment but all are relatable and will touch your heart. Brice’s delivery of the songs make the lyrics impactful and he continues to impress with his determination to deliver full, well-rounded albums to his fans.
