NASCAR drives Joe Nichols
Wednesday, April 25, 2007
– Joe Nichols will perform the National Anthem and give a free concert at this weekend's Aaron's 499 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Ala. The April 29th concert is part of the Garnier Fructis "Rock Your Style" concert series.
"I'm on the road so much I very seldom get to actually go to a NASCAR event," Nichols said. "The closest I have gotten this year was the Sound and Speed dinner in Nashville, where I got to meet some of NASCAR's best. Talladega is the biggest and fastest track on the circuit, so to be able to sing the National Anthem and watch the race will be a real treat for me."
Nichols is currently in the studio working on the followup to his hit CD, "III," scheduled to street late summer/early fall.

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. ...
