The #1 Most Added Song at US Country Radio This Week
Curb Records recording artist and ACM and CMA award winner Lee Brice has released his next song and single, “One of Them Girls.” The song — out now at all digital service providers following a world exclusive first play from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2 in the UK — follows the massive success of his No. 1 smash, “Rumor,” and his duet with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which currently holds steady in the Top 15 at US Country radio, and was performed by Pearce and Brice as part of the ACM’s “Our Country” Pre-Show last weekend.
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 impromptu songwriting session at 2 a.m. 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.”
The moving music video for “One of Them Girls” (watch HERE) is also out now everywhere, following an exclusive premiere through iHeartRadio. Directed by Ryan Smith and filmed in November 2019, the thoughtful visual honours the tireless work of first responders everywhere, and features a hero who is both a firefighter and a single parent.
One of Them Girls” serves as the follow-up to Brice’s double-Platinum No. 1 hit, “Rumor,” which 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 Wednesday, Sept. 16 on CBS.
Brice paid a virtual visit to FOX & Friends on Friday morning (10/4), and in addition to discussing the release, was compelled to play a brand-new original song, “Hey World.” It was in the moment just before he played the first note that Brice felt that he needed to connect with people in a genuine and honest way – people are suffering and that could not be ignored.
