Lee Brice Says His Wife Is the “Judge” When It Comes to Releasing Songs Like “One of Them Girls”

Lee Brice’s “One of Them Girls” is No. 2 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart for the second straight week as Luke Combs’ “Lovin’ On You” continues its four-week reign atop the chart.

The tune follows Lee’s No. 1 single, “Rumors,” which topped the charts in July 2019, and his collaboration with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which peaked at No. 1 earlier this year.

Penned by Lee, Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson and Ben Johnson, “One of Them Girls” is the lead single to Lee’s upcoming sixth studio album, Hey World, which drops on Nov. 20. Lee was inspired to write “One of Them Girls” after a moment of reflection with his family on Father’s Day in 2019. Lee penned the song the following morning with Ashley, Dallas and Ben, but he wasn’t sure the song would be well received due to the possible negative connotation of the title.

As Lee told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, he presented the song to the judge—his wife of seven years, Sara.

“I mean, as I wrote it, I was like, ‘Okay, I think this is really good, but I’ve gotta check,’ because it’s one of those things, like, as a guy, you could say this and go, ‘One of them girls, are you one of them girls?’” says Lee. “I’m like, ‘I don’t know if a girl’s gonna like that or not.’ So, I played it for my wife—she’s always the best judge of that stuff. I was like, ‘Does this appeal to you as a female?’ She’s like, ‘Absolutely! We’re all one of them girls.’”

Sara agreed with Lee’s initial sentiment: “It’s so very much about that girl that all of us—deep down, at the end of the day, at the end of our lives—really hope to have loving us,” says Lee.
