Park City Institute Presents - Lee Brice (Opener Randy Montana)

August 29, 2015 St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series at Deer Valley Resort

PARK CITY, UT – Country’s “sensitive macho man” (The New York Times) Lee Brice joins the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights line-up on August 29. Brice, who won two trophies at the 2015 Academy of Country Music Awards and lends his warm baritone to chart-topping hits (“Hard to Love,” “Drinking Class” and “I Don’t Dance”), delivers an unforgettable live show. Country singer-songwriter Randy Montana and his band open the show at 7 p.m. All St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights concerts take place at Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. Concert tickets and information available at Park City Institute’s box office, 435-655-3114, or online at

A former Clemson lineman, Brice deftly transitioned from behind the scenes as one of Music City’s go-to writers (Garth Brooks’ “More Than a Memory” and Tim McGraw's “Still” – among others) to a directly-in-the-spotlight, country star. After skyrocketing success penning hits for other artists, he released his first solo album, “Love Like Crazy,” in 2009. “Hard2Love” followed with more Billboard topping hits. And his most recent “I Don’t Dance” earned him his double ACM honors. Brice’s current summer tour includes a featured performance on “CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock" and a set at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival’s Daytime Village stage at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena (with Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, plus Kanye West, Sam Smith, The Who, Coldplay, Demi Lovato, The Weeknd, Duran Duran and Janet Jackson).

“One of the finest singer-songwriters country music has to offer right now,” according to USA Today, Brice can deliver a sweet love song and a good ol’ party song with equal aplomb. He wrote and produced 13 of the 16 tracks on his most recent album – and played almost every instrument on many of them as well. According to the New York Times, “the songs are sturdy, the mood aching. That's a noble mode, and a lane Mr. Brice has almost wholly to himself in modern country.”

“Brice comes to our stage with such remarkable – yet humble – talent as a songwriter and a performer,” says PCI’s executive director Teri Orr. “Like Brice, while ‘I Don’t Dance,’ I might make an exception for this show.”
