College football season is now underway, and Curb Records’ Lee Brice has been selected by the Clemson Tigers to write the team’s game day anthem. Before each game, the team will take the field to the sounds of Brice’s “Orange Empire,” which is now available on iTunes. Check here for a preview.
“I remember the ride over to the stadium on the team bus,” said Brice. “When we’d get to the top of that hill…there really is no describing the intensity and excitement. The fans were ready and insanely loud! When I sat down to write this song, I wanted to portray that feeling. Hopefully it’ll get ‘em going!”
A former Clemson football player and South Carolina native, Brice penned “Orange Empire” with Brian Davis and Billy Montana. Brice will also return to campus on Nov. 23 to host a pre-game concert when the Tigers take on the rival University of South Carolina Gamecocks. Tickets go on sale Oct. 5.
Yesterday (9/5), Brice announced the Broadcast Award nominees for the 46th Annual CMA Awards, and got word of his own nomination for Best New Artist.
