Brice had a potential home run here. The lyric is endearing, and his vocal conveys the sentiment well. I think it’s just a little too slow, so the needed sense of urgency isn’t there.
If you tune out his vocal and just listen to the backing track, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stumbled on to a Lite FM station that played easy listening hits from the early eighties.
Lee Brice has the chops. He needs a producer who thinks he can be a country music legend and a studio band willing to help get him there.
