“Rumor” Nominated for “Single of the Year” at 55th Annual ACM Awards
Nashville, TN. / London, UK. — (April 6th, 2020) — Curb Records recording artist and ACM & CMA award winner Lee Brice has announced his next song and radio single, “One of Them Girls” (pre-save / pre-add here). The song – available worldwide this Friday, April 10th, on all streaming & download platforms following a world exclusive first play from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2 on Thursday (April 9th) – follows the massive success of his #1 double-Platinum smash “Rumor”, and his recent duet with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” currently in the Top 15 at US Country radio.
Brice was inspired to write “One of Them Girls” on Father’s Day last year after a moment of reflection looking at his family around him. Leaning further into the concept, the father of three immediately called an “emergency songwriting session” at 2am the following morning with friends Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson and Ben Johnson, who helped him round out the song.
“I just love that the title could easily come across with a negative connotation at first,” says Brice of the song he co-produced with Ben Glover and Kyle Jacobs. “But, it’s so very much about that girl that all of us—deep down, at the end of the day, at the end of our lives—really hope to have loving us.”
“Rumor” is currently nominated for “Single of the Year” at the 55th annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards. This year’s ACM Awards will broadcast live on Wednesday, Sept. 16th on CBS.
