Joe Nichols releases new single
Friday, April 27, 2007
– The first single from Joe Nichols' forthcoming CD, set for release late summer/early fall, was shipped to radio last week. "Another Side of You" was written by Carson Chamberlain and Jamey Johnson and produced by Mark Wright and Brent Rowan.
"Joe is one of the only remaining truly traditional sounding male vocalists in our radio format today," said Universal Records South President and CD co-producer Wright. "This single matches his rich baritone voice with a simple country love song which, in the past, has been quite effective for artists like Merle Haggard, Don Williams, Randy Travis and Mark Chesnutt. We are very excited about getting this song out and on the air."
Nichols said, "I always enjoy the process of recording new material - being in the studio with the musicians and the producers and creating something we all feel is special. This time in the studio, I was once again working with Brent Rowan, who continues to bring so much to the table with my career, and I got a double dose of creativity having Mark Wright as co-producer on this album."
"Mark has an incredible energy and one of the best sets of ears in the business. Both of these men get where I am coming from and what I want to accomplish in the studio. I feel like we captured something fresh and vibrant, and I can't wait for everyone to get a taste of this new music."

Joe Nichols suffers from a split personality. 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. ...
