Since the 2009 release of "Love Like Crazy," Lee Brice has been one of the most consistent country singers and songwriters on commercial radio.

Read on for our five favorite Lee Brice songs (so far).

Beyond these selections, the South Carolina native's way with words can be heard on his co-writes recorded by Garth Brooks ("More Than a Memory"), Jason Aldean ("Not Every Man Lives"), Kenny Chesney ("Seven Days"), Tim McGraw ("Still") and Blake Shelton ("You'll Always Be Beautiful").

5. "Memory I Don't Mess With"

A lot of memorable tunes could fit the five spot, but we're going with Brice's current single (as of April 2021) from the 2020 album Hey World (his fifth with Curb Records). It's a big, bold, arena-packing single that spotlights Brice's strong suits as a performer and lyricist.

4. "I Don't Dance"

Brice is at his best when his songs offer a glimpse at his romantic side. That's certainly the case with this 2014 No. 1, penned with co-writers Dallas Davidson and Rob Hatch.

3. "Hard to Love"

The slightly reworded title track from Brice's 2012 album Hard 2 Love hits home whenever you wonder why your partner puts up with your perceived shortcomings.

2. "I Hope You're Happy Now" (Duet With Carly Pearce)

This Luke Combs co-write pairs two of the genre's best and most emotive vocalists to sing one of the better breakup songs in recent memory.

It won the 2020 CMA Award for Musical Event of the Year.

1. "I Drive Your Truck"

Though Brice has a bright future, he may never top this 2012 Billboard Country Airplay chart-topper.

Jessi Alexander, Connie Harrington and Jimmy Yeary wrote what's got to be one of the best modern country songs about personal loss and patriotism, allowing Brice to prove his brilliance as a storyteller.

It won Song of the Year at both the 2013 CMA and ACM Awards.

Honorable mention: "One of Them Girls," "Love Like Crazy," "Drinking Class," "Parking Lot Party," "That Don't Sound Like You," "A Woman Like You," "Beautiful Every Time," "Save the Roses" and "She Ain't Right"
