You don't have to drive a truck to fall in love with Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck." In fact, for Kevin Bacon, it happened in a Prius. In talking to Bacon and his brother Michael about their band, the Bacon Brothers, the conversation came around to country music. "I love storytelling," Kevin said. "I love a great country song. I love that feeling in the third verse when the lyrics give you chills. When it works, it's fantastic." And then he told me about discovering Brice's new song. "One of the best songs on my iPod is 'I Drive Your Truck.' I just happened to be driving -- not my truck, but my Prius -- and I heard it, and it's just got so much going for it, including a very strong anti-war message. I love that song. When someone puts that together with the same kind of chords and the same instrumentation and the same words from the English language, but shapes it in a new way, I just love it."

Lee Brice loves being on the concert trail, so the time spent with Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley on the Locked and Reloaded tour was perfect for him. One of the highlights for the singer was joining the two superstars to sing "Bad Angel," the tune they originally performed with Jamey Johnson.
"I respect them so much as people and artists and entertainers," Lee tells The Boot. "They are two of my favorites. Dierks is so easygoing, such a fun guy and so humble. Miranda kicks so much ass. They're just real people and I was happy to be part of that tour. We had such a good time."
