Husson University Student Activities is pleased to present country music star Lee Brice in concert at the Gracie Theatre on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets will be $25 for the general public and $15 for students with a student I.D.
At the concert, Brice is expected to perform hits from his recently released album Hard 2 Love. He is most recently known for his songs, “Hard to Love” and “A Woman Like You,” the latter about a married couple’s starkly honest meditation on love and devotion. Immediately upon release, the mid-tempo ballad became iTunes’ number five most-purchased song and sold more than 30,000 copies a week.
As co-writer of eight of the 13 tracks on Hard 2 Love, Brice has aimed for strong melodies and smart, emotional storytelling that aims straight for the heart of the human condition: the bluesy sigh of “See About a Girl;” the tailgate reverie of “Parking Lot Party;” the bittersweet tug of love in “Seven Days A Thousand Times;” and the down-on-your-knees gratitude of “One More Day.”
Brice has also received acclaim for his song-writing abilities. Garth Brooks’ “More Than a Memory,” which Brice co-wrote with Billy Montana and Kyle Jacobs, became the first song on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart to debut at number one. Then, the title track off of his own album, Love Like Crazy, was named Billboard’s most played country song of 2010. It still holds the record for the longest-charting song in the history of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.gracietheatre.com and applicable fees apply.
