Country star and total smoothie Lee Brice subbed in for Kathie Lee this morning. Lee's song, "A Woman Like You," is blowing up the country charts, and Hoda got a little star-struck. In fact, she had trouble making eye contact.
Hoda had already chosen one of Lee's songs, "Love Like Crazy," for the live version of iHoda, and she was in full fan-girl mode.
"Hey cowboy," she giggled, then extolled the virtues of his eyes. Lee serenaded her a little until she squealed, "Stop looking at me!" and closed her eyes. If only Country Week could last forever.
