In a recent Instagram post, Lee Brice gave fans a look at what he’s doing in the days leading up to Christmas. He and fellow chart-topper Chris Rice are in North Carolina hunting. The caption of the post lays it all out pretty plainly, “Just a couple Carolina boys out on the farm!” Just a couple of good ole boys enjoying some time in nature. There are worse ways to spend the last days before the holiday.
The post contains four photos, all taken by Chase Rice’s full-time photographer and videographer Kaiser Cunningham. While most of the photos almost look like they could have been candid, the last one definitely isn’t and it is absolute gold. The photo shows Lee Brice and Chase in their hunting gear, holding shotguns, and looking thoughtfully into the distance. It looks like it could be the cover for a hot new single about late-season duck hunting.
Not many outdoorsmen add a photoshoot into their hunting trip. When they do, there are usually harvested animals involved. These two are cool enough to pull it off, though.
Lee Brice’s Country Street Cred
Before Lee Brice was topping the charts with singles like “I Drive Your Truck”, “Rumor”, and his duet with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” he was writing number one hits for some of the biggest names in country music. In the past, he penned songs for Faith Hill, the Eli Young Band, Tim McGraw, and even Garth Brooks. In fact, he co-wrote Garth’s 2007 number-one hit “More Than a Memory” with Billy Montana and Kyle Jacobs. Brice has had one hell of a career, to say the least.
On top of having a killer career, Lee Brice also beat COVID-19 this year. While fighting off the virus, he stayed away from his family down the road from his home in their barn. He wasn’t alone, though. He had his charcoal lab named Charles to help keep him from going stir crazy.
From topping the charts to penning some of country music’s biggest hits to fighting a potentially deadly virus alongside a hunting dog, Lee Brice seems as country as they come. If anyone has earned the right to get some good ole boy glamour shots after a day of hunting, it’s him.
