Joe Nichols debuts new single on Leno
Friday, December 21, 2007
– Joe Nichols will help the Tonight Show With Jay Leno ring in the new year when he performs his brand new single, "It AIn't No Crime," Jan. 3, 2008.
This is the second single from his well-received CD "Real Things." The Tonight Show goes back into live production the night before Nichols's performance due to the ongoing writers's strike.
"I can't think of a better way for me to kick off the new year than being on the same stage as Jay Leno," Nichols said. "And to be able to do the show in its first week back of live production just adds to the excitement. The band and I are going to go in and add as much as we can to the high energy level we know the show is going to have...these people are ready to get back in there and entertain and so are we."
Nichols has been in rehabilitation since September for undisclosed issues.

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. ...
