OK, so there have been 2 albums within the last year that I have raved about: Eric Church's "Chief" and Jake Owen's "Barefoot Blue Jean Night." Well, we can safely add another album to my obsession: Lee Brice's "Hard 2 Love."
I've been a fan of Lee Brice ever since I heard "She Ain't Right." Great song that I still thoroughly enjoy. Now, I get to enjoy 13 songs (some more than others) on this album.
We've all heard his first single off the album, "A Woman Like You," which went to the top of the charts. His next single is the title track, "Hard To Love." and I think he has another hit with this song.
But, if you're like me and love slow country songs, there are a few on the album that are just killer.
One of my favorite songs is "That's When You Know It's Over," which is a very well written breakup song that I'm betting you can relate to if you've ever had your heart broken. It talks about the signs of knowing it's over with a former love. Very powerful.
Another one of my favorites is "I Drive Your Truck" (hear song below). This is probably the biggest tear jerker on the album. It talks about dealing with the death of a loved one. People deal with it in different ways and Lee's, in the song, is driving his brother's truck. I dare you to really listen to the lyrics and try not to cry the first time through.
And lastly, I love "That Way Again." Another slow song that talks about dealing with heartache after losing a loved one. The girl misses what she had with her loved one and wishes it would be 'that way again,' hence the name of the song. Again, you might cry on this one, but it's a good cry.
I've only discussed my favorite slower songs on the album, but it does have some upbeat songs like "Parking Lot Party" and "Friends We Won't Forget." And really, there's not a bad song on it. I'm all about lyrics, good lyrics, and this album has plenty of those. That's probably why I fell in love with the album. That and the fact that I can really relate to a few of the jams. Lee Brice's killer voice doesn't hurt things, either. If you haven't done so yet, I highly suggest picking up this fantastic album. Let me know what you think!
Seriously, try not to cry...
