Country crooner Lee Brice has a lot to celebrate in 2012. In addition to becoming engaged to Sara Reeveley on Jan. 2, this week he scored his first #1 song on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Songs chart. While “A Woman Like You” is the first achievement as a solo artist, he previously lent his songwriter skills to two other chart toppers: “Crazy Girl” by Eli Young Band and “More Than a Memory” by Garth Brooks.
“A Woman Like You” was penned by Jon Stone –who has also written songs for Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, and Kenny Chesney. Brice was pretty open about how the lucky track came to be, telling The Boot:
“Jon Stone came over and said, ‘I wrote this song.’ He played it for me and I knew immediately I wanted to record it. I went out and recorded a demo of it and within a couple weeks, my label [Curb Records] told me they wanted to release it as my next single.”
