Biography

Brice Long was born and raised in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.[2] In the 1990s, he pursued a career in the rodeo, until his father persuaded him to pursue musical goals instead.[3] For the next several years, Long toured as an opening act for other artists, including Eddie Rabbitt. Rabbitt's manager persuaded Long to move to Nashville, Tennessee; he did so in 1993, after graduating from Middle Tennessee State University.[4]

Three years later, he was signed to a songwriting contract at the publishing division of Reba McEntire's Starstruck Entertainment Company.[3][4] While in internship, Long was roommates with Darryl Worley, who later achieved success as a singer-songwriter himself.[4] Long eventually had some of his songs recorded by Randy Travis, Josh Turner, and John Michael Montgomery.[4] Additionally, Long sang harmony vocals on Gary Allan's 1999 single "Smoke Rings in the Dark". In 2004, Allan also reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with "Nothing On but the Radio", a song co-written by Long.[5]

In 2005, Long was signed to Columbia Records.[3] His debut single, "It's Only Monday", was released but did not chart. "Anywhere but Here", his second single, peaked at No. 51 on Hot Country Songs. (The song was later recorded by Chris Cagle, whose version peaked at No. 52 a year later.) Long also issued a third single, entitled "Meat and Potato Man".

Long performed at the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2006.[6] He also co-wrote Casey James' "Let's Don't Call It a Night", Allan's 2009 single "Today" and Jon Pardi's "What I Can't Put Down".
