Lee Brice Reveals He Once Challenged ‘Bully’ to a Fight Backstage on Luke Bryan Stadium Tour

In a new interview with Taste of Country, country singer Lee Brice opens up about the time he dared a “bully” to come talk to him backstage.

Brice Takes to Social Media

“I remember I was opening up for Luke Bryan on the stadium tour,” Brice said. “And somebody said something that was completely wrong and… really put a bad message out there about me and about my show. So I tweeted out right at that moment, I said, ‘Look dude, why don’t you come say that to my face, come see me backstage and we can handle this.’”

Brice stressed that what the Twitter user said was unfair. And Brice claims his Twitter followers took his side.

“So he said, ‘Oh yeah, I’d love to come have a beer backstage,’” Brice continued. “I’m like ‘Nah, brother I’m not talking about coming back here to have a beer.'” 

Kids and Bullying

But at the same time, the country star says it’s a shame that kids take so seriously what peers or strangers say about them on social media.

“There are kids every day — I hate that they take so much heart in what people, friends that they have and/or people that they don’t even know, say about them,” Brice added. “It’s such a type of bullying.”

Brice has had a great year in spite of his recent bout with Covid-19. He has enjoyed career success with No. 1 hits like “One of Them Girls” and “I Hope You’re Happy Now.” He’s also been able to spend more time with his wife and three kids, that is, when not quarantining in his barn.

“2020 has been a very good year for me,” Brice told People in a recent interview. “I don’t want to take away from the hardships that so many people are going through with this pandemic. But for me, it’s been this huge, silver lining sort of year.”
