If anyone would recognize a burning bus it would be [lastfm link_type=""]Lee Brice[/lastfm], after all, his went up in flames last month.  Well Tuesday night [lastfm link_type=""]Jerrod Nieman[/lastfm]‘s bus caught fire and he says if it wasn’t for Lee, who got his attention and made sure everyone was off the bus before an explosion that would have ripped through the cabin, he would have been a crispy critter.

Jerrod said: “To be honest, thank the good Lord that @leebrice was here tonite or I’d be freddy Krueger,” Niemann tweeted that statement early Wednesday morning. Niemann was warned about the fire by friend Jon Stone, but he didn’t believe him.  Niemann says: ”I’m like, ‘Dude, your gun’s shot. Our bus is not on fire.'”  ”I thought it was the heater. So I went to the thermostat and it says “Auto Cool”. So Lee gets off the bus and is like ‘Dude, that’s black smoke. Your bus is on fire.'”  ”So we get everyone off – my family and everyone, and pretty soon we hear this ‘Boom!’ and we think it’s the fuel line, but we look and the whole front windshield was just blown out.”
