A Country Song about Not Dancing – I Don’t Dance, by Lee Brice
He doesn’t dance, but for her, he dances. On my recent visit to mom’s house, I played this song for her and with a soft place in my heart explaining how it reminded me of her and dad. We miss him so much, and there’s rarely a song that goes by in country music that doesn’t make me think of Dad…especially ‘I Don’t Dance’ by Lee Brice.

(Lyrics) ‘…I don’t dance but here I am spinning you around and around in circles, it ain’t my style, but I don’t care, I’d do anything with you anywhere’…
As wonderful as my father was to all of us, all of our lives, I can safely say, my dad was not a dancer. Never once had I seen my dad on a dance floor…not even at my wedding…it wasn’t his style, but I was OK with that, because he was a first class father to me..the best a girl could ask for.
After dad passed, I remember having a conversation with mom about how dad never danced…and that’s when I received the best shock of my life:
Mom and dad were ‘snowbirds’ and spent their winters south. The beautiful community they stayed in often had dances and gatherings for special occasions, and with a smile on her face mom informed me that Dad would get up with his walker and dance. I almost fell off the chair when she told me that! Picturing my dad, swaying and moving around with his walker …dancing…. is now forever imprinted in my mind. It brings me peace to think of him this way.
So, even though Lee Brice wrote this song for his wedding, it’s a song that easily applies to any man, who because of his love for his woman, ‘will do anything for her’.
Lee Brice isn’t aware of it, but the lyrics to several of his songs tell the story of our family’s life...here’s why I consider him an honorary member of our family.
