The biggest selling Lee Brice song so far was an exceptional love song about a man who knows that his tactic of showing his devotion is not essentially the more flowery or showy one. Instead, it is as real as anything he could feel. Does his romantic single “I Don’t Dance” talk about him?
“I Don’t Dance”, Song Standing
I Don’t Dance is Lee Brice’s third studio album. Curb Records released it on September 9, 2014. The album debuted at Top 5 on the Billboard 20, and Top 1 on the Top Country Albums chart, selling 39,000 copies in the United States in its first week. On October 18, 2017, the song garnered gold status by the RIAA. The album’s lead single is also its title track. “I Don’t Dance” became a number one single on Country Airplay in mid-2014. Moreover, the song won Single Record of the Year at the 2014 ACM Awards.
“I Don’t Dance” received affirmative reviews from music critics. Lee Brice originally penned the song for the first dance with his wife at their April 2013 wedding. He tried to keep it a secret, but then he had to play it one night. This got his wife, Sarah, mad for playing it before their wedding.
When Lee Brice sat down to work on an idea for “I Don’t Dance” with his pals Rob Hatch and Dallas Davidson he was not expecting it would end up being the lead single for his third album. In his mind, it was a song for his wife, Sarah, before they get married. Lee Brice first met Sara Reeveley, in the early 2000s in South Carolina. They wedded in the mountain resort town of Branson, Missouri on April 21, 2013.
However, during that writing session, the song took on a new life of its own. Surprisingly, it turned out so special. When they finished the song, Lee Brice realized it was not just a song he wrote for his wife. Also, he shared that calling the whole album I Don’t Dance is symbolic of his negation to “dance in the box of Nashville.”
