"Boy"From 'Lee Brice' (2017)
Brice and his wife Sara welcomed their third child, a baby girl, in 2017, but his single from that year, "Boy," is for his two sons. The artist began playing the song live before releasing it as a single, prompting fans to hold up photos of their sons -- and prompting Brice to realize how lucky he was to have two beautiful, healthy boys at home.
"I would break down onstage," he tells The Boot.
Nicolle Galyon and Jon Nite co-wrote "Boy." The song landed in the Top 20 (No. 3) at country radio.
"[T]hat song reminded me of my daddy. And now, as a daddy, I realize how hard he was trying to teach me things that he wanted me to learn for me, not for him," Brice reflects. "So now I’m trying to teach my kids, and they aren’t listening to me. They don’t know that I’m trying to help -- [that] it’s all about them. So the connection between my daddy and myself, and now myself and my sons, that is what makes “Boy,” the song, so special."
