Lee Brice was up early this morning (June 30) for a performance on Fox & Friends’ All-American Summer Concert series.
In addition to treating fans to tunes from his past catalog, including No. 1 hit, “I Don’t Dance,” Lee performed his new single, “Boy,” which is currently No. 48 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after two weeks.
Co-written by Nicolle Galyon and Jon Nite, the nostalgic tune serves as the lead single from Lee’s upcoming self-titled album and celebrates the many “firsts” in a boy’s life, including first fight, first kiss, first heartbreak and more.
“I heard this song and it just put me on the ground the first time I heard it,” says Lee. “I have a personal connection to it because I’ve got two boys. This song is a tribute to them. It’s my way of saying how proud I am to be their dad. It’s kind of ironic, we’re putting out ‘Boy’ [after the birth of Trulee Nanette]. I figured this is a good time to go ahead and get this one out so she’s not jealous, and I guess I’ll have to write a girl song later.”
