NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 9, 2013) – A toast was made in Las Vegas at the stroke of midnight Sunday night to celebrate award-winning singer/songwriter Lee Brice’s new #1 single, “I Drive Your Truck”. The poignant ballad joins his previous 2 number one songs as singles that also happened to peak the same week as major country award shows. “A Woman Like You” went #1 the week of the 2012 ACM Awards. The follow up single “Hard To Love” hit the top spot later that year during the week of the CMA Awards, and following suit, “I Drive Your Truck” reached the pinnacle during ACM Awards week this year. Curb Records is gearing up for the 4th single, “Parking Lot Party”, off the current album.

Although a prolific songwriter himself, Brice did not write “I Drive Your Truck”; however, he knew he had to cut it as soon as he heard it. “Every now and then I hear a song that just blows me away,” he said. “And that song just put me on the floor the first time I heard it”. Brice’s powerfully raw and emotional offering is the fastest moving single of his career and is his 3rd #1 single in a row from his latest album, Hard 2 Love, which includes several songs co-written and co-produced by label mate, Jon Stone of new duo American Young, which also includes Kristy Osmunson.

Jon and Kristy joined hosts Dallas Davidson and Don Schlitz and gave the crowd a taste of their new music at the ACM Songwriters Show. Before attending the awards, the duo walked the red carpet where Jon spoke about his Song of the Year nomination for Brice’s “A Woman Like You” and they both fielded questions about their highly anticipated new album, which will be co-produced by Lee Brice and Justin Neibank. The duo, who have a list of songwriting and producer credits among them, will release their debut single “Love Is War” to radio this summer.
