Lee Brice Scores Back-to-Back No. 1 Hits With ‘Hard to Love’
What’s sweeter than scoring your first No. 1 song? How about having the follow-up single also top the charts? If that’s sweet, then Lee Brice is feeling cavities. ‘Hard to Love,’ the second single from Brice’s sophomore album of the same name, has been in a steady climb to the top, and this week it sits pretty at No. 1 on both the Billboard and Mediabase / Country Aircheck charts.
The gold-certified single — penned by Ben Glover, Billy Montana and John Ozier — follows Briceâs ‘A Woman Like You,’ which set the pace earlier this year with platinum certification and chart-topping status.
âI think guys like us on the road can certainly relate to being hard to love a lot of times… or just guys in general,â laughs Brice. âI loved this song before it was even finished being written, and am blown away that my fans and country radio supported it all the way to No. one.â
Trailing behind Brice on the charts this week are songs by Luke Bryan (‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’), Easton Corbin (‘Lovin’ You Is Fun’), Jake Owen (‘The One That Got Away’), Rascal Flatts (‘Come Wake Me Up’), Florida Georgia Line (‘Cruise’), Kip Moore (‘Beer Money’) and Justin Moore (”Til My Last Day’).
