Lee Brice’s ‘I Don’t Dance’ Goes Platinum in Record Time
That's news enough for him to get up and do a little jig. The singer received a plaque from RIAA on Sept. 12 while opening Luke Bryan's That's My Kind of Night Tour at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The title track from his new album has a sweet story behind it; 'I Don't Dance' was written for his wife and their first dance as husband and wife. "It was a gift to my wife for our first dance and it said, 'Man I didn't know that I was ever going to really get here in my life,' but she brought me here," Brice shares with Fox News.
It was also inspired by her, because, in actuality, Brice doesn't dance. But his wife does, and he'll do anything for her. "Sara is an amazing dancer. It’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen. And when she says, ‘Baby, let’s dance,’ it’s so intimidating. But just for her, I’ll do it.” That inspired the song and the album title."
Even the song's music video has personal touches in it; Brice included he and Sara's wedding footage, as well as his performance on the legendary Ryman stage in Nashville. Brice’s close friend Hoda Kotb of Today's 'Kathie Lee and Hoda' presented the plaque to him along with RIAA representatives.
The singer is on the second leg of Bryan's That's My Kind of Night Tour which runs through October. Congratulations on this fantastic accomplishment!
