Lee Brice Releases Reflective New Single, “Memory I Don’t Mess With” [Listen]

Lee Brice will try to score his ninth No. 1 single with the release of “Memory I Don’t Mess With.”

Penned by Lee, Brian Davis and Billy Montana, the new single will impact country radio on Nov. 2.

“It’s about exactly what it says,” says Lee. “It’s one of those memories, it’s one of those things that you can’t let yourself get too close to because it just pulls you in too deep. The memory’s always there. The pictures are always there in your head. But that’s the one you’ve just gotta let alone, and let just be a memory.”

Lee scored his eighth No. 1 single with “One of Them Girls,” which topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart for three weeks in October. The tune followed Lee’s previous No. 1 single, “Rumors,” which reached the top of the charts in July 2019, and his collaboration with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which peaked at No. 1 earlier this year.

“Memory I Don’t Mess With” is featured on Lee’s upcoming sixth studio album, Hey World, which drops on Nov. 20.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
