While "A Woman Like You" is not a song that the newly-engaged singer wrote, it was personally pitched to him. "Jon Stone came over and said, 'I wrote this song.' He played it for me and I knew immediately I wanted to record it," Lee tells The Boot. "I went out and recorded a demo of it and within a couple weeks, my label [Curb Records] told me they wanted to release it as my next single."
"It's a very special story and it makes the women happy," the North Carolina native adds. "We definitely want to keep the women happy!"
Speaking of keeping women happy, further proof that 2012 is Lee's year: he got engaged to the gorgeous Sara Reeveley on Jan. 2. The pair met nearly 13 years ago, and together have a 3-year-old son, Takoda.
"We met in a storybook way," Lee told The Boot. "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 ole 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.' 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 beach."
Lee is currently on the road. He's headed to Florida State University in Tallahassee on Friday (April 13). Get more information here.
