Lee Brice has scored his first gold single with the certification this week of “Love Like Crazy.” The recording has sold in excess of 500,000 digital downloads. The announcement comes on the heels of another milestone for the Curb release. It recently broke the record for most weeks spent on the Billboard Country Songs chart when it hit 55 weeks – more than a year on the charts. The previous record holder was Eddy Arnold’s “Bouquet of Roses,” which debuted the week of May 15, 1948, and spent 54 weeks on the chart.
“It is not a surprise that Lee Brice’s single ‘Love Like Crazy’ hit Gold status after 52 weeks on the chart,” noted Benson Curb, VP of sales, Curb Records. “It is directly attributable to Lee’s strong vocals on this song and how the country audience has connected with his music. This is the first of many hit singles to come from Lee Brice.”
Brice’s follow-up to his Top 3 hit is the just released “Beautiful Every Time,” a song he wrote with Rob Hatch and Lance Miller. The single goes for adds October 25th.
