“Love Like Crazy” Breaks Big Record

Brice, Lee

Big ups to Lee Brice for breaking a record with 55 weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart with “Love Like Crazy.” More than a year on the charts for a song? That’s crazy!

“It’s really hard for me to wrap my head around. . . ,” Lee said in a press release.

“I had a really good feeling about it when [producer and Curb label exec] Doug Johnson played it for me. But never in my wildest dreams did I think it would have this kind of life.”

Even more interesting is how far back you have to go to get to the last song that stayed on the charts for more than a year. No, it’s not Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places”, or any of his songs for that matter. Is it Tammy Wynette’s “D-I-V-O-R-C-E”? W-R-O-N-G.

The song is Eddy Arnold’s “Bouquet of Roses,” which stayed on the charts for 54 weeks—and it’s from 1948!

So that song is more than twice as old as Lee Brice.
