Lee Brice Spent Two Years Figuring Out the Song Order On His "I Don't Dance" Album


I'm sure most artists put a lot of thought into the song order on their albums, but two years seems a little excessive to me.  And yet, that's how long it took LEE BRICE to settle on the track listing of "I Don't Dance", which is out September 9th.

He said, quote, "Every night for two years and a lot of mornings when I woke up, I spent looking at sequencing.  If you're talking about 16 songs . . . and it started out with 30 . . . there are a lot of combinations.

"I toiled over it until literally 10:30 in the morning on the day of mastering until I said, 'Okay, this is the sequence.'  I had a couple of tweaks left, and I figured it out."
