He’s a bear of a man whose physical stature seems imposing enough to evoke a little fear, but he happens to be one of the most lovable stars in country music. In fact, we’ve got five good reasons to love Lee Brice in this installment of Rare Country’s 5.

There are a lot of really talented men in country music, and Lee is most definitely in those ranks. He is a masterful songwriter, penning hits like Garth Brooks’ “More Than a Memory.” He’s also a versatile entertainer who can draw out every emotion in a song as poignant as “I Drive Your Truck” or as fun and thumping as “Drinking Class.” But before he hit the streets of Nashville, Lee was on the turf on special teams for Clemson University.

That explains those broad shoulders, right?

If you’ve ever met Lee or had the good fortune of spending some time with him, you know there’s something special about him. There’s a tenderness in his heart that comes through that can only be explained by the solid upbringing he had in the church. And that doesn’t speak to just his good nature and sweet spirit, but also his throaty vocals. Lee sang in the church choir and has mentioned hoping to record a gospel album with his mom someday.

We sure hope that happens!
