Maybe it's the absence of Kathie Lee or the Southern manners of guest host Lee Brice, but Hoda — who is notoriously hyper-competitive during game show segments — was a bizarrely good sport this morning.
When Women's Health features editor Sascha Gersdorff tested their knowledge of allergies with a little Myth vs. Fact game, Lee vowed to keep his eye on Hoda. "I hear she's a cheater," he said.
Turns out their allergies smarts were more or less equal (although neither of them knew that honey does not cure them), but Hoda was actually winning by a point when she suggested they declare it a tie. What? Who is this generous impostor?
Lee came by to talk with Suzanne Alexander about his new album, Hard 2 Love, due out April 24, while Casey dished to Nan about his self-titled debut album, which hits shelves on Tuesday, March 20. Tune in tonight at 9/8c to see what else Lee and Casey have to talk about! Check the full schedule »

In April 2011, Hoda Kotb selected Lee Brice’s hit single and Billboard’s Most Played Song of 2010, “Love Like Crazy,” for her “iHoda Playlist.” Now, close to a year later, she has invited the singer to join her and perform his new Top 10 smash, “A Woman Like You,” live in studio. Brice commented on the invitation, “I’m really excited to co-host with Hoda. I love that she loves country music and shares it with the world on her ‘iHoda Playlist.’ Buckle up Hoda, we’re gonna have some fun!”
Brice’s “Today” debut kicks off a soon-to-be busy schedule for the award-nominated singer. On April 1, Brice will compete in the “Song of the Year” category at the ACM Awards for co-writing Eli Young Band’s first #1 single, “Crazy Girl.” Then, on April 24, his much-anticipated sophomore album, Hard 2 Love, hits the streets with a fury of media appearances. “A Woman Like You” is the lead release from the album and is currently at #10 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and is selling over 40,000 single downloads weekly.
