Lee Brice Says Writing a Special Song Is a Gift From Above: “It’s Like God Gave You Something So Cool”

Lee Brice is trying to score his eighth No. 1 single with the release of “One of Them Girls.” Penned by Lee, Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson and Ben Johnson, “One of Them Girls” is currently No. 18 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after 16 weeks.

The new tune follows Lee’s previous No. 1 singles, “Rumors,” which topped the charts in July 2019, and his collaboration with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which topped the charts in June 2020.

Lee was inspired to write “One of Them Girls” on Father’s Day in 2019 after a moment of reflection with his family. As Lee recently told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, writing a special song is like a gift from God.

“You feel healthy and you feel refreshed ’cause, you know, sometimes you can go a while and you can write good songs all day long—you can do that, you can force ’em out, but when those real special ones kind of hit you, and you come out of that day and you’re like, ‘Wow, this song did not exist the day before,’” says Lee to Kix. “And, it’s like God gave you something so cool . . . it gives you this adrenaline rush and it kind of re-fires your . . . if you were getting a little frustrated or maybe like, ‘Maybe I’m just done writing great songs,’ or, ‘Maybe it just ain’t gonna happen,’ and then, it happens? It just makes you so happy.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
