If there’s any song sure to break even the coldest of hearts, the song at the top of the list is, without a doubt, Garth Brooks‘ “More Than a Memory.” Known for pouring immense emotion into his performances, Lee Brice sparks emotion in the crowd during an outstanding rendition of Brooks’ hit.

Taking place at KUPL Studio 987, the country singer took a heart-wrenching approach to the song, putting his all into the acoustic performance. Backed by an acoustic guitar, Brice’s powerful voice flawlessly executed even the most challenging notes required by the song.

“Waking a friend in the dead of the night/ Just to hear him say it’s gonna be alright,” sings Brice while strumming his guitar. “When you’re finding things to do to not fall asleep/ Cause you know she will be there in your dreams/ That’s when she’s more than a memory.”

“More Than a Memory” was written by Brice alongside fellow songwriters Billy Montana and Kyle Jacobs but recorded by Brooks for his 2007 album, The Ultimate Hits. Debuting at number one on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart, Brooks set a record for the highest debut.

The song has a new meaning following Jacobs’ early 2024 death.

Jacobs, who was the husband of country singer Kellie Pickler, wrote several songs for Brice and produced Brice’s songs “Hard To Love,” “I Drive Your Truck,” “Drinking Class,” and “Rumor.”

Brice paid tribute to his late friend with a touching post on social media. He signed it, “I’ll miss you til we meet again..I love you, brother.”
