Jerrod Niemann and Lee Brice have a longstanding relationship. Niemann has a credit on “That’s When You Know It’s Over,” which appeared on Brice’s 2012 full-length Hard 2 Love, while Brice helped write “Buzz Back Girl,” a single from Niemann’s 2014 album High Noon.
The two teamed up again recently on a “A Little More Love,” but for this one, writing duties were outsourced to an all-star crew: Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman, Natalie Hemby and Kristi Neumann. The resulting track is slick, fizzy, and well-timed for months of warm weather.
“The groove, the message, the feeling of the song — it all screamed my best friend,” Brice told Rolling Stone Country. “We’ve been harmonizing together for years, playing live shows together for years, and you can hear that friendship on the final recording. We worked on a cool harmony part that almost sounds like two lead vocals going, rather than traditional harmony.”
The video for the track arrived this week, and it opens with the pair comfortably napping on the beach. They miss their flight, but decide to follow a half-crazed, bucket hat-wearing amateur treasure hunter on an adventure. Watch below.
