Joe Nichols takes off with Colt Ford
Monday, October 19, 2009
– When considering a bonus track for his upcoming CD release, "Old Things New," Joe Nichols gave fans a new twist on an old hit. He asked country rapper Colt Ford to remix Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,
a number 1 hit for Nichols in 2005.
"It was a real honor when Joe asked us to do a remix...because it is such a great country song," Ford said. "Joe has one of my favorite voices in country music so I really wanted to make the remix a fun song, and I think we did that. The remix is 'Tequila with a twist of Colt' so to speak."
The song will be shipped to 250 dance clubs nationwide. The label plans to heavily promote the remix with regional and/or national contests, artist banners on clubs' websites and a special "Tequila" line dance now being created by teams of dancers for the song.
The new CD drops Oct. 27 as Nichols' sixth studio CD for Universal Records South.

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.

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. ...
