AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Lee Brice was born in 1980 in Sumter, South Carolina. He learned how to play the piano, sing in church and write his own songs as a child. Brice won three talent contests at his high school. He attended Clemson University on a football scholarship then changed directions to pursue a country music career. He is best known for the single "She Ain't Right."

"I have been writing and singing since 10," Brice explained. "It was the first time I got in front of a big crowd. I went onto a district contest. I hurt my elbow playing football. They fixed it."

The country music singer is also an accomplished songwriter. He has written songs for artists such as Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean and Adam Gregory, among others. Which do you enjoy more -- writing or performing?

"I wrote those so I could perform them," Brice responded. "It's also another thing to get up on stage. Both have ups and downs."

The country music singer was in the studio when our phone interview took place. After having five singles on the charts, Brice is set to release his debut album in June.

"The next single will be 'Beautiful Everytime,'" he said. "The title track is really a gospel and rock and roll song. A couple of ballads on there. It's my first album. I spent a couple of years on it. I wrote everything on the record except two songs."

What's the story behind your current single "Love Like Crazy"?

"It made me think of my grandparents," Brice explained. "I just had to record it."

Brice will perform at the new Toby Keith restaurant tomorrow at the Great Lakes Crossing shopping center in Auburn Hills, Mich.

"It's going to be a roller coaster ride," he said. "We're going to go up and go down. It's a big restaurant/bar. It's fun and loud but it can be rowdy or intimate."

The country music singer performed at Detroit's Downtown Hoedown in 2008.

"That was fun," he said. "It was when I was first getting started on the road. An exciting time."

Brice said he might be returning to the hoedown this year. "I think I may be possibly," the country music singer said. "They keep talking about it."
