That Don't Sound Like You

Album: I Don't Dance (2014)
Charted: 64

Songfacts®:

  • This sombre song about an old flame whose new man has stripped her of her fun-loving identity was penned by Lee Brice with Rhett Akins and Ashley Gorley. The song starts with minimal instrumentation but builds up to a crescendo of sound as Brice tries to persuade his ex to come home to him.

    The South Carolina native said this is one of several I Don't Dance tracks that show his growth as an artist. "The thing about that record that kind of pointed me in the direction was I just loved hearing all the classic sounds that you knew he grew up hearing - very classic, vintage sounds but with obviously a very hip and a very new approach to music and his own thing," Brice stated. "I love the mixing of those worlds. I just really wanted to try to be true to what I was raised hearing - those vintage, cool sounds - and then also the modern stuff."
  • The song's video was directed by Ryan Smith, who also produced Brice's two previous music clips. It was filmed outside of Virginia Beach in early June 2015.
