Lee Brice is raising his glass to the strong, confident women in the world in his just-released new single, “One of Them Girls.”
The song came to life on Father’s Day in 2019 when Brice, a father of three, called an “emergency songwriting session” after feeing inspired by his family around him. Hours later, the acclaimed singer/songwriter was joined by Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson and Ben Johnson, who helped him bring the idea to life.
“I just love that the title could easily come across with a negative connotation at first,” Brice, who co-produced the song with Ben Glover and Kyle Jacobs, explained. “But, 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.”
The “One of Them Girls” music video brings the song’s message to life, highlighting a woman who is juggling a hectic life of being a single mom and firefighter.
“The video says a lot. It’s a strong woman,” Brice shared with Fox & Friends. “It’s a single mother in the video, so it even takes the song to another level. She’s also a firefighter, so she is a first responder. And there’s a thing about the kind of girl that all us boys are really looking for at heart.”
“One of Them Girls” is the follow-up to Brice’s chart-topping hit, “Rumor,” which is currently nominated for Single of the Year at the 2020 ACM Awards. Additionally, Brice is racing back up the country charts with “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” his collaboration with Carly Pearce.
