Memory I Don’t Mess With was written by Lee Brice, Brian Davis and Billy Montana from Lee’s fifth LP, Hey World.

“Hey World is just my next step in life. Where I am, who I am, what I love, and what I feel. From the songs, to the production, to the order they play in, I always have and still do make it my goal to get better and better at what I do. Short of my family, my wife and friends, my music is the deepest part of me. So, I am overjoyed to say that I think I have made my best project to date.”

“I tell ya, this song is one of my favorites on this record. This one’s very me. If I had to kind of go down one lane and only write one type of song the rest of my life this is would be the lane it would be down.”

“Everybody has a different favorite song on this record. I asked the head of Spotify or iTunes or radio, and they all had a different song that was their favorite. But I will say there was a consensus: Everybody loved this song.”

Memory I Don’t Mess With is Lee’s fourth consecutive #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. It follows One of Them Girls, a three-week #1 in October 2020, I Hope You’re Happy Now with Carly Pearce June 2020, and Rumor July 2019.

“It’s about exactly what it says. It’s one of those memories, it’s one of those things that you can’t let yourself get too close to because it just pulls you in too deep. The memory’s always there. The pictures are always there in your head. But that’s the one you’ve gotta let alone, and let just be a memory.”

Lee Brice making memories with his wife Sara Nanette Reeveley Brice.

“We met in a storybook way. I was walking on North Myrtle Beach one night when I was there on vacation. It was raining and dark, so no one was on the beach, and then this girl walks by in this big ol’ sweatshirt, and you can’t tell if she’s attractive or not. Just as she walked by, the light hit her just right, and I’m like, She’s gorgeous. So I said to my buddies, If she turns around, I’m going to go walk back to her. I looked back, and the next thing I know, she’s turned around, so I went after her. We sat down on the beach and talked, then I went and got my guitar and played songs for her on beach.”

Brice and Reeveley wed on April 21, 2013. The video for I Don’t Dance features personal footage from their wedding.

The couple has three children: sons Takoda Brice (born in 2008) and Ryker Mobley Brice (born in 2013), and daughter Trulee Nanette Brice (born in 2017).

“I love this video for many reasons. For one, it’s like this little snapshot of a moment in time in my personal life. There was a time, a girl, a story very close to what this video portrays that I actually went through, even down to the year and model of the truck in the video.”

“Another really cool thing about the video is where we filmed it on my farm, where it was written, even where some of it was recorded. Shooting down in that river bed where I float, where I fish with my kids, was one of the coolest shots I’ve ever been a part of.”
