Joe Nichols tries to make Believers
Monday, March 30, 2009
– Joe Nichols' brand new single, Believers,
arrives at radio today.
"This song is about passion - when people have passion about something, the sky's the limit," Nichols said. "It's also about believing in something bigger than what's right in front of you. There have been a lot of times in my life, both recently and in the past, that I've needed a lot of belief just to move me forward. This song gives me that."
The song was written by Ashley Gorley (Trace Adkins' You're Gonna Miss This), Wade Kirby (George Strait's I Saw God Today) and Bill Luther (Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's Let's Make Love), and produced by Nichols' longtime producer Brent Rowan.
Believers is the lead single from the artist's new CD, which will be released by Universal Records South later this year. The as yet untitled recording is the follow-up to Nichols' 2007 release, "Real Things."

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.
One of the prime ...
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. ...
