Country music star Lee Brice takes a break from songwriting and joins Capt. Justin Leak to explore Lake Powell, one of Florida’s largest coastal dune lakes, in Coastal Dune Beauty, the upcoming episode of “Chasin’ The Sun.” Featuring co-hosts Justin Leake and Travis Holeman, “Chasin’ The Sun” is presented by Visit Panama City Beach, and will air on Saturday, February 9 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST on Discovery Channel.
The Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling artist finds himself in Panama City Beach while working on his new album. “This part of the country has become like a second home and a very inspirational place for me,” says Brice, who wrote his current hit single “Rumor” during a previous songwriting session in Panama City Beach.
Coastal dune lakes are rare ecosystems found in only a few locations throughout the world. Fed by creeks, rainwater and storm surge, Lake Powell occasionally connects to the Gulf of Mexico via a channel cut through the sand. The resulting mixture of freshwater and saltwater creates a brackish blend that attracts a vast array of species ranging from largemouth bass to speckled trout.
When an afternoon thunderstorm brings a premature end to the fishing trip, Lee takes Justin back to his beachside studio for an all-access sneak preview of a song he wrote just the night before.
