POCATELLO — Lee Brice and special guest Wynonna Judd and The Big Noise will perform at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 8 at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre.
Brice is an American country music singer and songwriter. He has had four No. 1 hits on the Billboard Country Airplay charts, including “A Woman Like You,” “Hard to Love,” “I Drive Your Truck” and “I Don’t Dance.”
The country singer was at the height of success in 2014. He received Grammy Awards nominations for best country solo performance for “I drive your truck,” a single that was also nominated for best country song by the awards show. That same year, “I don’t Dance” was nominated as Country Music Awards Song of the Year.
Brice had his breakthrough in 2012, when he was a Country Music Awards New Artist of the Year nominee. Additionally, he was nominated in 2013 by the Academy of Country Music Awards as the top new male artist.
The singer officially kicked off his career in 2007, when he signed with Curb Records and published his debut single “She Ain’t Right,” which peaked at 29th on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. That same year, he achieved acclaim for co-writing Garth Brooks’ 2007 single “More than a Memory,” the first song in the history of the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts to start at No. 1.
Brice’s concert will be one of at least three August performances in Idaho by Brice, according to his website’s schedule that doesn’t list his Pocatello show yet. He’s singing in Worley on Aug. 2 and Garden City on Aug. 9.
Brice will be joined in Pocatello by Wynonna Judd and her band, The Big Noise, which is orchestrated by her husband Cactus Moser, a producer and drummer.
Tickets for the Pocatello concert go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at smithtix.com.
The event is one of four announced concerts this summer at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre. Country star Clint Black is playing at the theater on June 28 at 7 p.m. in his 30th anniversary tour, while singer Dwight Yoakam takes the stage July 12 at 7:30 p.m.
