On April 21, 2013, Lee Brice married his longtime lady love Sara Reeveley. The couple have two sons, Takoda (born in 2008) and Ryker (born in 2013).
Let’s rewind to the very beginning of the couple’s romance, “We met in a storybook way,” Brice confessed to The Boot during a 2011 interview. “I was walking on North Myrtle Beach one night, when I was there on vacation. I was around 18 years old, and it was just me and a few buddies, and we were looking for girls.”
“It was raining and dark, so no one was on the beach, and then this girl walks by in this big ol’ sweatshirt, and you can’t tell if she’s attractive or not. Just as she walked by, the light hit her just right, and I’m like, ‘She’s gorgeous,’” Brice recalled. “So I said to my buddies, ‘If she turns around, I’m going to go walk back to her.’ I looked back, and the next thing I know, she’s turned around, so I went after her. We sat down on the beach and talked, then I went and got my guitar and played songs for her on the beach.”
Though their first encounter was memorable, the pair took awhile to connect as an official couple due to geographical distance— he’s from South Carolina and she’s from Ohio. Years later, Brice sought out Reeveley while he was in her home state on a radio tour. The couple then started dating and welcomed their first son Takoda in 2008.
Brice’s heartfelt hit “I Don’t Dance” was meant for Sara’s ears only and was penned in honor of their wedding day— but the tune proved too good to keep under wraps. The official video for “I Don’t Dance” features personal footage from their wedding.
Between Brice’s country music career, touring schedule, and raising two young sons, the family certainly has a lot going on, but Brice told CMT in 2014 that his wife is the reason he is able to balance his many responsibilities.
“It’s a balance, but we make it work,” he confessed. “Sara is just superhuman.”
Smart man. What an awesome couple and adorable family. Be sure to share this with other Lee Brice fans!
