In case you were looking for another reason to fall in love with Lee Brice, here’s yet another. During a tour stop in Kentucky last weekend alongside Chris Young and Brothers Osborne, Brice was in the middle of his 2014 hit song “I Don’t Dance” when a little girl named Kyra joined him on stage.
Decked out in a pink tutu and cowboy boots, Kyra looked like any other adorable child. But one look at the tiny hospital mask around her mouth indicated that this little girl had a story to tell. Indeed, Kyra was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma cancer in April 2013, according to her “Team Kyra” Facebook page.
But for one night, Kyra found herself the queen of the ball, being twirled around by Brice to the melody of “I Don’t Dance.” “She is the only woman I could ever sing this song to, other than my wife,” said the emotional hit maker, known best for touching hits like “Drinking Class,” “I Drive Your Truck” and “A Woman Like You.”
Brice also served as a co-writer on the 2007 Garth Brooks hit “More than a Memory.”
