Country music singer Lee Brice is opening up about certain less-than-tasty life changes that happened while dealing with the coronavirus.

“My taste kind of just got weird,” Brice says in an interview on the radio show “KLME 107.9’s Gunner & Cheyenne.”

He says, “Biscuits and gravy tasted like Comet,” comparing it to the cleaning disinfectant.

The South Carolina native spent his quarantine in his barn down the street from his house, where he was kept company by a new member of his family, a charcoal lab named Charlee. He showed his four-legged companion off in an Instagram post.

Also, CMT also tweeted out a photo of Brice and Charlee.

Wife Takes Care Of Kids While Lee Brice Quarantined

While he was quarantining in the barn, his wife, Sara, was at home with their three kids, sons Takoda, 12, and Ryker, 6, and daughter Trulee, 3.

“She’s stuck at home with them and she wants to go workout and do all this,” Brice told RADIO.com’s Katie & Company, adding that his wife had sent him “homemade soup” and “a bunch of vitamins and all these minerals and stuff, essential oils and crap. I did everything she asked me to do.”

Brice Talks About Dealing With Bullies In His Life

Brice knows all about struggles, whether it is from an illness or bullies. He remembers his own experiences being bullied throughout middle school.

Brice tackles the subject of bullying with his song “Sons and Daughters,” which features on Brice’s album “Hey World.” The song encourages people to be empathetic and think before they judge or bully another. Brice also opened up about being a victim of bullying himself.

“I went through a time … where I was bullied really hard through middle school. A lot of it was mental,” Brice told Taste of Country. “I’d get ganged up on because I was so big, they knew they had to come like 50 of ‘em. But it was scary. So then with “Sons and Daughters” it was like I could see that happening via social media.”

Physically, Brice is a large man listed at 6-foot, 3-inches on Google, and he even described himself as being tall as a kid. But the group mentality of others made the future country singer feel small as a child. In the song, Brice tackles the subject of bullying on social media. It’s something that he even experienced as an adult and had to deal with. Social media bullying can be difficult to defend against.

“But 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 said. “It’s such a type of bullying.”
