A celebration hosted by BMI and SESAC was held at The Music City Tippler in Nashville for Lee Brice and co-writers Dallas Davidson and Rob Hatch for their No. 1 song “I Don’t Dance.” BMI’s Bradley Collins and SESAC’s Tim Fink led the festivities.

Not only was the hit single a No. 1 song, it has also been nominated for Song of the Year at this year’s Country Music Association awards. Brice was commended on not only being the songwriter and singer of the song, but he was also the sole producer.

He was inspired to write the song for his wife Sara, whom he married earlier this year.  This is Brice’s fourth No. 1 as an artist, his third as a songwriter, second as a producer, and first as a sole producer.

“I have a new baby, Rob has a new little girl and Dallas has a boy on the way,” said Brice. “This is where songs like this come from. Songs come from real places and that’s why people connect to them. Thank you Curb Records for letting me just make music.”

This is Davidson’s 19th No. 1 song.  He was described as the writer of the current era of Country Music. “To put my name on a song like this is something special,” said Davidson. “I’m glad it came at a time that I can enjoy this with my wife Natalia.”

Rob Hatch now has two No. 1 songs to his credit. He had spent the last three nights in the hospital with his wife and new baby girl, so it was a special week for Hatch.

Members of the Country Music Association, and Country Radio Broadcasters also awarded the artists on stage.
