The La Crosse Loggers Baseball Club will host a Summer Kickoff Concert on Sunday, May 27, featuring Lee Brice and special guest Easton Corbin, at the ballpark at Copeland Park. Newly formed “yacht rock” band Slow, No Wake will open the evening’s festivities, which start at 5 p.m.
In the course of his stellar career, Brice has put out four albums, with four songs hitting No. 1 on Billboard Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay: “A Woman Like You,” “Hard to Love,” “I Drive Your Truck” and “I Don’t Dance.” He also has hit the top 10 with “Love Like Crazy,” “Parking Lot Party,” “Drinking Class” and “That Don’t Sound Like You.”
“Love Like Crazy” was the top country song of 2010, according to Billboard Year-End, and broke a 62-year-old record for the longest run on the country chart.
Brice also has co-written singles for Garth Brooks, Adam Gregory, Eli Young Band, and Tim McGraw. One of Brice’s compositions, Brooks’s “More Than a Memory,” was the first song ever to debut at No. 1 on the country chart, while another, Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl,” was the Billboard Year-End top country song of 2011.
Corbin, who was part of Carrie Underwood’s 2016 tour, also has had his share of success on the country charts. His 2010 self-titled debut album spawned back-to-back hits, “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It,” making him the first male country artist in 17 years to have his first two singles reach No. 1.
On his 2012 sophomore album, “All Over the Road,” the title track and “Lovin’ You Is Fun” were top 5 hits. Corbin’s latest single, “Are You With Me,” was the most added song on country radio the day it was released. He has been in the studio lately working on new music for his fourth studio album.
