That followed his 2012 sophomore album, Hard 2 Love, which was certified gold and sold nearly 500,000 copies.

Brice has had a string of hit songs, such as “Woman Like You,” “Parking Lot Party” and “Drinking Class.”

Brice has also had success as a songwriter, penning hits for Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw and the Eli Young Band.
