Lee Brice Earns First-Ever Daytime Emmy Nomination
Lee Brice has scored his first-ever Daytime Emmy Award nomination for a song he wrote with Billy Montana and Adam Wood, “Pocket Change.” The tune, which was featured on the PBS Primetime series, American Anthems, is nominated for Best Original Song.
American Anthems, produced by Believe Entertainment Group and NBCU, honors everyday heroes who have overcome adversity and go on to make lasting positive impacts in their communities. Brice’s “Pocket Change” mirrors the inspiring story of Ashley Ruiz—a “hope dealer” that pays for laundry services in low-income communities.
“What can I say? I’m completely stunned,” says Brice. “I never once thought I’d be an Emmy nominee! I had a great time working with American Anthems and meeting such an inspiring person like Ashley really puts life and everything we take for granted into perspective. On behalf of myself, Billy and Adam, I just want to say thank you so much for this incredible recognition.”
The Daytime Emmy Awards telecast will air live on June 16 on CBS and Paramount +.
