“One of Them Girls” was released last week
Curb Records recording artist and ACM and CMA award winner Lee Brice’s brand new radio single, “One of Them Girls,” which released everywhere on Friday, April 10th, is the No. 1 Most Added song at country radio on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts. “One of Them Girls” follows the massive success of Brice’s No. 1 smash hit, the double platinum “Rumor,” and his duet with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which jumps into the Top 10 on the Mediabase Chart, a song that was performed by Pearce and Brice as part of the ACM’s Our Country Pre-Show on April 5th. “Rumor” is currently nominated for “Single of the Year” at the 55th Annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, which will broadcast live Wednesday, September 16th on CBS, after being delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brice was inspired to write “One of Them Girls” on Father’s Day last year after a moment of reflection looking at his family around him. Leaning further into the concept, the father of three immediately called an impromptu songwriting session at 2 am the following morning with friends Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson and Ben Johnson, who helped him round out the song.
“I just love that the title could easily come across with a negative connotation at first,” says Brice of the song he co-produced with Ben Glover and Kyle Jacobs. “But, it’s so very much about that girl that all of us — deep down, at the end of the day, at the end of our lives — really hope to have loving us.”
The moving music video for “One of Them Girls,” directed by Ryan Smith and filmed in November 2019, honors the tireless work of first responders everywhere. The thoughtful visual features a hero who is both a firefighter and a single parent.
