Gimmie number one, says Joe Nichols
Monday, April 26, 2010
– Joe Nichols tops the charts this week with his single Gimmie That Girl.
This becomes Nichols' fourth number hit. The song is included on Nichols' CD "Old Things New." Nichols takes over the top from Lady Antebellum's Need You Now.
"The Lord has blessed me more than I deserve," Nichols said. "I'm so happy to have my team and to have the staff of Show Dog - Universal on my side. And I'm proud to have so many great friends at country radio who believe in what I do - thanks to all of them. And the very best thing about this song is it connects with the country fans, and that's all I could ever ask for, as they are the reason I do this."
Song sales are averaging 30,000 per week and about to cross the 300,000 total mark.
Nichols kicked off his tour in March and will be on the road through most of the year.

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. ...
