THIS JUST IN! Tune in Friday, June 22, when country Star Lee Brice returns to the “Today” show to help fulfill a dream come true for co-host, Hoda Kotb. Brice will perform his current hit single, “Hard to Love,” which is rapidly climbing Billboard’s Top Country Songs chart and is sitting at #13 on the iTunes Country Top 100 chart with 190,000 digital downloads sold to date.

This past spring, Brice co-hosted the “Today” show with Kotb and performed his #1 hit, “A Woman Like You,” which was just certified platinum by the RIAA for 1 million digital downloads. 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.”

Brice is currently touring throughout the United States throughout the summer.
