Nichols sets PR for adds for new single
Monday, May 13, 2013
– Joe Nichols will have the biggest country radio add week of his career this week with Sunny and 75,
the lead single for Red Bow Records.
The song had 52 first week adds, making it not only the biggest add week of his career, but also the second most added song at country radio this week.
Nichols was one of the first artists signed to Red Bow Records when it opened in October 2012. The label also includes Rachel Farley.
The song was written by Michael Delaney, Paul Jenkins and Jason Sellers and is the lead single from Nichols' upcoming, as yet untitled CD, set for release this fall. Lyrics for the song can be seen online.
Nichols will tour this summer. The artist will also be a part of CMA Music Festival in Nashville this June, with a performance at Riverstages on June 6 and his annual Fan Club party later that same day, this year taking place at 3rd and Lindsley.

CD reviews for Joe Nichols
Joe Nichols suffers from a split personality. With a fine voice like his and songs from his past like Brokenheartsville, Nichols is strongly positioned to lay claim to being one of the very few last traditional country singers standing. There just aren't a whole lot of folks out there with the twang and phrasing (listen to how he holds the notes on the lead-off Just Let Me Fall in Love With You or the twang in Baby You're in Love With Me) out there like Nichols.

A Traditional Christmas (digital only)
It's an instance of truth in advertising that Joe Nichols calls his new holiday album "A Traditional Christmas." Traditions are mostly wonderful things. Few would enjoy Christmas, for example, if it was celebrated completely differently every year. However, Nichols' new traditional album is a little too faithful to these familiar Christmas songs. It's as though he's being so careful, he won't open presents on Christmas morning for fear that he might mess up the wrapping paper. »»»
It's All Good
A greatest hits collection released earlier this year helped remind country fans that Joe Nichols has been producing hits for a good decade now. While the sound of country has become much more pop and rock oriented since Nichols started, he has stayed relatively true to the traditionalist sound. While it hasn't always garnered him consistent chart-topping smash hits, it has given him a sizable fanbase - count George Jones and Merle Haggard among his admirers.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Watkins steps out on his own
At the ripe old age of 39, Sean Watkins is doing things a bit differently when it comes to his music. By far the biggest sign is that he is in the midst of his first ever solo headlining tour.
That may seem a bit odd almost after having released four solo albums since 2001.
But when you have your main gig being in the trio Nickel Creek, pus other... »»»
Concert Review: No surprise, Jackson and friends still Keepin' It Country
Alan Jackson calling his current tour Keepin' It County reads like one of those 'no duh' statements because the Georgia born singer/songwriter has always kept his music traditional - even in the face of the continuing rock and pop-ization of contemporary country music. But keep it country he did once again for a sold out audience on the... »»»

Some in the mainstream country audience may only know Angaleena Presley as one of the two other
singers in Miranda Lambert's side group, Pistol Annies. But to view Presley in only that limited light would be selling her severely short. For starters, Pistol Annies is a trio of extra strong female country music writers and by no means merely Lambert's side group.... »»»
Jorma Kaukonen has reached that stage in life where any break he takes is well earned and completely deserved. The 74-year-old singer/songwriter is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee for his work with Jefferson Airplane and his solo career has kept him busy - and fans deliriously happy - for an astonishing 41 years when he's not sometimes playing with Hot Tuna.... »»»
The last time Kenny Roby assembled 6 String Drag to record a new studio album, Bill Clinton had just handily secured his second term as president. That album was 1997's acclaimed "High Hat," and within months of its release, 6SD had dissolved, sadly capping a brief Americana/roots rock run that had seemed so promising after their brilliant 1994 self-titled debut...... »»»
All These Dreams
The sophomore slump is no match for Andrew Combs. Somehow the Texas-born, Nashville-residing singer-songwriter packs it all into his second full-length, "All These Dreams," in a way that every track stands out on its own and no listener can go without finding at least one tune that fits their preference. Rock, country and folk meld together »»»
The first album by James McMurtry in six years proves that some simply get better with age. And it opens with a gorgeous, deliberate performance, "Copper Canteen," and a line about cleaning his gun before hunting season comes to a close. From there, McMurtry looks back at his youth and the changing world today "before the pension kicks in." »»»
