Editorial Reviews

After much success as a hit songwriter for a litany of country music s most virile chart toppers from Garth Brooks and Kenny Chesney to Jason Aldean and Tim McGraw, Lee Brice is now focusing his creative talents on propelling his own right as a superstar. Hard 2 Love follows Brice s critically-acclaimed debut album Love Like Crazy, which spawned Billboard s Most Played Country Song of 2010 by virtue of its title track. Billboard remarkably repeated the honor in 2011 with the Brice-penned "Crazy Girl" hitting #1 for the Eli Young Band racking up "most played" song numbers in the country genre, and being nominated by the ACM in the prestigious "Song of the Year" category. Notable too in chart history, Brice penned Garth Brooks' "More Than A Memory" the only song in Billboard history to debut at the top of the Hot Country Songs chart.

Undeniably, Lee Brice s focus on center stage with a 2012 studio project is built on a massive platform of success as one of Nashville s hottest hit writers. Add to the mix the obvious facts that pure, authentic vocal talent and rough-hewn good looks are the ingredients for superstardom. Hard 2 Love boldly showcases what all the excitement is about. Powerful vocals and top drawer songs provide a stellar collection that invests Brice both professionally and personally with honest, raw emotion. "Everything on the album reflects who I am right now and where I am in my life, " he noted in a recent interview.

Songs such as "Parking Lot Party, " "Beer, " and"Life Off My Years" portray the nuts and bolts realism of the "man s man" spin on life in today s reality series-driven culture. The title track "Hard To Love, " "A Woman Like You, " "Ring In My Pocket, " and "One More Day" shed a more personal insight into the heart of the man and the creative, personal journey he s on.

Co-produced by Lee Brice, Kyle Jacobs, Jon Stone, Doug Johnson, and Matt McClure, some of Nashville s finest writers have been marshaled into creative service on Hard 2 Love with Lee s major league troop "A-Team" writing buddies including Billy Montana, Jerrod Niemann, John Ozier, Jon Stone, and Eric Church. Brice co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks.

This is a wonderful sophomore album release from one of the best country music rising singer-songwriters Lee Brice titled 'Hard 2 Love' : it's a follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut 'Love Like Crazy'. He has managed to successfully navigate from song-writing chart-topping songs to other country music stars to superstardom himself. This new CD (13 tracks) certainly solidifies his musical career as a serious singer-songwriter (he co-wrote eight of thirteen tracks) : great melodical guitars, incredible lyrics & vocals. Lee Brice sings about love found/lost and more in this album. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "A Woman Like You", "That's When You Know It's Over", "I Drive Your Truck", "Life Off My Years", "Seven Days A Thousand Times" & "That Way Again". Great tracks include "Hard To Love" (great opening title track), "Parking Lot Party", "Don't Believe Everything You Think", "See About A Girl", "Friends We Won't Forget", "Beer" (fun track with great harmonica) & "On More Day". There is no weak track or CD filler in this CD release.

On overall, Lee Brice has certainly solidified his musical career in this wonderful sophomore release. A well deserved 5 star performance & a highly recommended CD listening!

I'd definitely recommend his first album before this one, but Hard 2 Love is still pretty great (as long as you can get past the STUPID album name and cover). I've been a big Lee Brice fan for a while, but I'm a little worried that he's veering towards the female demographic, due to his success with the slower, prettier songs. Also, there are too many little "audio blurbs" in between the songs on his album. (It reminded me way too much of his friend Jerrod Niemann's album.)

Thank God he's still got some fun, fast, loud songs on the album. Let's hope he can continue his country rock success!

Talk about good storytelling through songs! This guy has earned me as a permanent fan. After seeing him twice live in concert at two very different times in his career, once about 2 years ago and once a couple months ago, I can tell that this guy just loves music and he loves what he does. One thing that I enjoy about this album is that, although there are only a couple have-fun-party songs "Beer" and "Parking Lot Party," you find yourself singing to them after a while. Each tells a little story or communicates something that everyone can relate to, whether it's because we have similar memories or because you can feel the emotions in his voice. Listen to "That Way Again" or "I Drive Your Truck" and see if you don't feel something. And out of the 13 songs on the album, Brice wrote or co-wrote 8 of them. I really value an artist who can create songs/music of there own and also record strong tracks that somebody else wrote too, like "Life Off My Years" which was written by Eric Church. I'd recommend this album in a heartbeat, especially if you like songs that are actually about something with substance, not just about a red solo cup, even though those songs are fun.

I've heard the song "A Woman Like You" on country radio and loved it. Instead of just downloading that song I decided to take a chance on the CD. I'm glad I did. There's a good collection of songs on it well worth the price.

We watched a recent salute to the military on tv and we saw him perform his song: I Drive Your Truck. I'd heard it in part a few times but it didn't click for me. I had seen his video: A Woman Like You and liked it but it didn't leave me with a sense of urgency to go buy. Quite frankly he came off as just another newer face on an already crowded country landscape.

As we watched his performance on TV he really hit a grand slam home run. We went out and bought it two days later locally. This is an impressive and talented country artist who has got my attention (and my wife's) now and I will buy more Lee Brice. A solid CD with a more traditional country sound and a rock solid track list of top notch songs.

I first heard Woman Like You and it didn't hit me the way it did many others, but after previewing the album I figured I would give it a shot. The title track and Woman Like You are the ones many will be familiar with, but my favorites are actually Friends We Won't Forget and Parking Lot Party. It puts a little more fun into the album than the slower sappy songs. If you're a fan of either you'll enjoy the album.
