Biography

Lee Brice is a craftsman, the kind whose boundless desire to hone his skills and relentless pursuit of perfection are matched only by his humility about the entire process. His latest album, ‘I Don't Dance’, is a showcase for his painstaking approach to writing and recording, with his distinctive fingerprints clearly emblazoned on every element of the album. Released Sept. 9, 2014, ‘I Don’t Dance’ debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and #5 on the Billboard 200, setting the stage for Brice’s meteoric rise in the country music world. He celebrated the album's massive release week with performances on the Today Show and Letterman. He also teamed up with Luke Bryan for two sold-out shows in New York: a performance at Madison Square Garden, where Today Show host Hoda Kotb surprised Brice onstage with a career milestone plaque recognizing "I Don't Dance" as the year's fastest platinum-certified country single, and an historic concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the venue's first-ever country concert. At the 2015 Academy of Country Music Awards, he was awarded two trophies in the “Single Record Of The Year” category as both artist and producer of ‘I Don’t Dance’. Two weeks later, he was invited to perform “Drinking Class” on NBC’s The Voice. The track not only went #1 that week but was certified RIAA Gold, marking his second RIAA certification in less than six months. In January, Lee had a surreal moment when Garth Brooks invited him onstage in Boston to share vocals on “More Than A Memory”. Getting to sing that song with Garth - my first number one as a songwriter - was a "bucket list" moment for sure, shares Brice. He checked another item off his bucket list when he sold out his first headlining show at the historic Ryman Auditorium where he was met with six standing ovations over his 50 minute set. While Brice is now known as reliable chart-topping Nashville hit-maker, there was a time when he was only recognized for his work behind the scenes. "I had success as a writer before I had success as an artist," says Brice, "so there's a misconception that I was a songwriter first and then started to sing my own songs ater. But all along, I've really always been writing for myself.

    When Australian singer/songwriter Morgan Evans released his self-titled debut album in 2014, it was the culmination of a musical journey that began when he started his first band at the age of thirteen. It’s a journey that has seen the country-rocker tour with superstars like Taylor Swift and Alan Jackson, play to over 50,000 people in Nashville at the world’s biggest country music festival and build a large, devoted following as he’s played the length and breadth of his native land and across the USA. Morgan has made his mark on the Australian musical landscape with a sound that fused contemporary country with melodic rock, fueled by a unique passion and energy all Morgan’s own. His music is driven by an optimism shaped by life’s bumpy journey, a faith in the power of love and hard work to overcome the obstacles we all face every day. Growing up in the working class beach city of Newcastle in NSW, Morgan turned the blue-collar ethic of his neighborhood into a relentless drive for energy and connection in his live shows. After seeing him whip a festival crowd into a frenzy, Warner Music Australia offered Morgan a recording contract. In 2013, after releasing two hit EPs that yielded three #1 singles, Morgan was named New Oz Artist of the Year at the CMC Music Awards. The fan voted award solidified his status as the hottest young performer in Australian country and was followed by four more trophies over the next two years, including back-to-back Male Oz Artist of the Year awards.
