New York - On June 28, country star Lee Brice put on an exceptional acoustic show at Stage 17 for NASH FM 94.7, in New York City, for an intimate group of country fans and listeners.
"Hello, everyone. Thanks for coming," said NASH FM radio personalities Katie Neal and Jesse Addy, both of which co-hosted the "Up Close and Country" Lee Brice event. Addy expressed his gratitude to the NASH FM 94.7 audience for being a part of "another great day" for country music in New York City, and Katie Neal went on to thank their sponsor, Wendy's.
"How you doing?" Lee Brice asked, as he took the stage, and the answer responded "good." "That's a good, good!" he further exclaimed.
After a few minor technical difficulties with the mic, Brice engaged in small talk with the crowd, where he shared that he and his wife, Sara, had a baby girl, Trulee, a few weeks ago, and he joked that his three-year-old boy, Ryker, is a "three-year-old Tasmanian devil." He kicked off his set with the infectious "Hard to Love," which garnered him a raucous applause, and rightfully so, as his acoustic version featured his bold, powerhouse vocals.
It was followed by a new song "Rumor," which was another well-crafted ballad. "Those from a small town know what I'm talking about," he said.
"Would you love to hear more Lee Brice?" Jesse Addy asked the audience, and the answer was a loud "yes." He immediately broke into his new radio single, the poignant "Boy," which is bound to be his next major hit on country radio. "That was a very special song," Brice admitted, prior to sharing that he "loves writing songs," which is evident based on all the music that he puts out.
The highlight vocal of his set was his melancholic "I Drink Your Truck," which left many fans in tears as NASH FM midday host Katie Neal observed. It was one of those songs where one could hear a pin drop during this moving performance.
Brice closed his five-song set with "Drinking Class," where he encouraged any who knew the lyrics to sing along with him. It is an ode to the blue-collar and white-collar workers respectively.
His new single "Boy" is available on iTunes.
The Verdict
Overall, Lee Brice did a solid job performing for his NASH FM 94.7 audience at Stage 17, where he accompanied himself solely on acoustic guitar. It was great to hear newer songs (from his upcoming album), as well as his smash hits ("I Drive Your Truck" and "Hard to Love"). His live set garnered an A rating.
