Before Lee Brice tied the knot, he barely had any laces.

The “I Don’t Dance” singer, one of country music’s most recent newlyweds, tells CMT Hot 20 Countdown he never pictured himself as a married mad.

“At a point in my life, I saw myself on the road all the time,” he says in an exclusive interview. “I didn’t see the family life in front of me anytime soon. I didn’t see me settling down. I didn’t see my dancing after my wedding. Thank God, my eyes were opened up and Sarah changed my life.”

Lee married Sarah Reevely in April of 2013, and footage from the ceremony appears in his new music video for “I Don’t Dance,” the first single from his forthcoming new album by the same name.

Look for I Don’t Dance, the album, to drop Sept. 9.
