Lee Brice Earns First RIAA Double-Platinum Certification for Single, “I Don’t Dance” 

 

Today’s Certification Marks Lee’s 7th Consecutive 

Since "Love Like Crazy" Struck Gold in 2010

 

Earlier today Lee Brice was surprised with his first double-Platinum award from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) marking more than two million sales and streams of his single “I Don’t Dance” (Curb Records, 2014). 

 

Jonathan Lamy, Executive Vice President, Communications and Marketing, RIAA, made the presentation prior to Lee’s ‘American Made’ co-bill tour date at Fairfax, VA’s EagleBank Arena.  

 

“Congratulations to Lee on his new status as a multi-Platinum artist.  ‘I Don't Dance’ is such an iconic song and we’re proud to help recognize its double-Platinum certification,” said Lamy. “It’s clear that Lee is a special artist, with every one of his seven singles certified Gold or higher.  Seven for seven – that’s an impressive track record worth celebrating!” 

 

Lee was recently recognized with a plaque reflecting the RIAA Diamond — more than 10 million in sales and streams — certification of Garth Brooks’ “The Ultimate Hits,” which included Lee’s single “More Than A Memory,” which he wrote with Kyle Jacobs and Billy Montana.

 

In addition to this career milestone, Lee recently celebrated the announcement of a third child — a little girl — who will be making her debut later this summer, plus a string of sold-out 'American Made' tour dates.

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
