Lee Brice Explains How College Football Prepared Him for Country Stardom

Image Courtesy Curb RecordsLee Brice has a pretty sweet gig as a country star, but the singer still misses his days playing college football as a long snapper for the Clemson Tigers in South Carolina.

"I miss the contact, the training and just playing the game," Lee tells Florida Today. "I love the competition. I love the physical side of it and being able to go out there and have proof of who you are."

The discipline Lee learned on the football field translates to his current career as a singer/songwriter. While he used to write songs only when inspiration hit, Lee now approaches that craft as a professional.

He says, "You learn after a while that you have to get up every day and put yourself in the position to write and work at it, so now it is a mixture of what moves me and approaching it as a writer."

Lee Brice returns to Clemson University for a headlining concert April 11.
