Lee Brice Says Writing a Special Song Is a Gift From Above: “It’s Like God Gave You Something So Cool”

Lee Brice is trying to score his eighth No. 1 single with the release of “One of Them Girls.” Penned by Lee, Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson and Ben Johnson, “One of Them Girls” is currently No. 18 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after 16 weeks.

The new tune follows Lee’s previous No. 1 singles, “Rumors,” which topped the charts in July 2019, and his collaboration with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which topped the charts in June 2020.

Lee was inspired to write “One of Them Girls” on Father’s Day in 2019 after a moment of reflection with his family. As Lee recently told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, writing a special song is like a gift from God.

“You feel healthy and you feel refreshed ’cause, you know, sometimes you can go a while and you can write good songs all day long—you can do that, you can force ’em out, but when those real special ones kind of hit you, and you come out of that day and you’re like, ‘Wow, this song did not exist the day before,’” says Lee to Kix. “And, it’s like God gave you something so cool . . . it gives you this adrenaline rush and it kind of re-fires your . . . if you were getting a little frustrated or maybe like, ‘Maybe I’m just done writing great songs,’ or, ‘Maybe it just ain’t gonna happen,’ and then, it happens? It just makes you so happy.”
