Lee Brice Partners With Bosch Power Tools to Honor Nashville’s Hard-Working Trade Professionals
Nashville, Tenn. (May 6, 2019) — Days before launching his summertime tour of arenas and amphitheaters, Lee Brice strapped on a hard hat and connected with a different sort of audience. In a unique partnership with Bosch Power Tools, the country chart-topper visited the construction site of the Drury Hotel in Nashville, where he saluted America’s hard-working tradespeople.
Brice’s worksite appearance on April 30th was a key component of Bosch’s new Demand Different Tour. Following a company-led presentation focusing on construction safety and best-practice power tool usage, Brice addressed the crowd of industrial professionals and skilled tradesmen, offering personal stories about his own experience as well as broader insights about the value of a career in the trades. Power tool prizes and a guitar giveaway were also part of the “There’s a Rumor Bosch is Coming to Nashville” campaign, which aimed not only to educate the city’s laborers about worksite technology, but also to recognize Nashville’s hardest-working trade professionals while increasing public awareness of America’s skilled-worker shortage.
Lee Brice’s hit song “Rumor” — which recently earned a GOLD certification from the RIAA, while also rising to #1 on SiriusXM The Highway and becoming the most-played song on Pandora’s country playlist — has been a pillar of Bosch’s campaign in the Nashville area. Brice’s deep connection to trade work began long before the song’s release, however, dating back to the songwriter’s childhood in central South Carolina. There, his father worked in the trades and owned a commercial electric business. “My family knows the value of hard work and dedication to a trade,” Brice says. “When I talk to anyone about working in the trades, it comes from a lifetime of experience and a deep respect for tradesmen and tradeswomen everywhere.”
“We want to show our appreciation for the trades — not just in Nashville, but everywhere,” adds Brice, who will share shows with Randy Houser, Rascal Flatts, and Old Dominion this summer. “We want professionals to know that their contribution is not unnoticed.”
