Nichols remains at the top
Tuesday, May 4, 2010
– Joe Nichols has his first ever multi-week number one this week with his hit single, Gimmie That Girl.
The Show Dog-Universal Music recording artist topped the charts last week with the song, giving him his fourth career chart topper.
"I love the fact that this song is connecting with country music fans - at shows, at radio, and with downloads," Nichols said. "This is a real career milestone for me, and I appreciate not only the fans, but also country radio and everyone on the team who has worked so hard to get me to this place. Hitting a career peak for me by staying at number one for another week - well, I'll just say beating every single I've had before is not something I can say I saw coming just a few months ago. Thank you to everyone. Truly."

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. ...
