Joe Nichols "III" goes gold

Tuesday, March 28, 2006 – Joe Nichols' CD, "III" was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, as announced today by Universal Records South's Senior Partners Tim DuBois and Tony Brown, meaning the disc has sold more than 500,000 copies.

This is Nichols' second gold CD ("Man With A Memory," Nichols' debut CD was certified gold in 2003, and is nearing the platinum mark).

Earlier this month, the lead single from " "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off," was certified gold for digital downloads in excess of 100,000 and last year hit number 1 on the Billboad country song chart.

"In my opinion, there is no better young singer making records today. In the hands of an artist like Joe Nichols, a really good country song becomes a great country record," Brown said.

DuBois added, "The fact that this CD has been certified gold based on one single record's airplay is testament to the strength of Joe Nichols and his music."

Nichols' second single from "III," "Size Matters (Someday)," has gone Top 20.

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. One of the prime ...
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. ...
