LEE BRICE'S "DRINKING CLASS" IS THIS YEAR'S MOST PLAYED SONG ON COUNTRY RADIO

Dec 15 | Posted by: Billboard

After a whirlwind year filled with hit singles, sold-out tour dates and TV show appearances, Curb recording artist Lee Brice -- whose RIAA Gold-certified "Drinking Class" enjoyed a long stay toward the top of the Billboard Country Airplay chart -- has been named the most played song on Country radio in 2015 (chart date 12.19).

The "evocative rough-edged singer" (New York Times) earned the same distinction? in 2010 with "Love Like Crazy." That smash hit remained on the Billboard charts for more than a year, breaking Eddy Arnold's 60 year-old record in the process. With "Drinking Class," Lee Brice now earns his second "Most Played Song" honor, capping off a busy year that also included a pair of ACM Awards for "I Don't Dance."

Earlier in 2015, the CMA "Single of the Year" nominee performed on NBC's "The Voice," delivered a featured performance on "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night To Rock" (ABC) and was the only Country artist to play the iHeartRadio Music Festival's Daytime Village Stage this summer. A dedicated road warrior, Brice recently became the only Country artist to perform in all 50 states this year, celebrating his 50th state show in Rome, GA -- a date that sold out in less than three minutes.

Known for his consistently raw, emotional and energetic performances, Lee will criss cross the country once again with the 21-date "Life Off My Years" tour with friends Tyler Farr and Dylan Scott. Kicking off Thurs., Feb. 4 in Salisbury, MD, the tour will take the boys to cities like Chicago, Augusta, Rochester, Milwaukee and more.
