Joe Nichols Experiencing Career Comeback


(Nashville, TN) -- Joe Nichols admits he's enjoying the resurgence he's having in his career. The country star's last two singles, "Yeah" and "Sunny and 75," have both gone to number one, becoming his first chart-toppers since 2009's "Gimmie That Girl." Joe is crediting his recent success to his latest album, "Crickets," which he says is "full of opportunity." He tells CMT that his previous releases had one or two "obvious" singles along with "a bunch of good album cuts," but "Crickets" is "full of singles" that all have hit potential. Nichols says he's hoping this will give him "a little sustained momentum to go into the next album," and "the opportunity to do something really special in the next couple of years."

Joe adds that "Crickets" features "a good balance" of the traditional-sounding songs his longtime fans love and tracks with a "progressive sound" that is attracting new listeners. The singer says he can see the growth in his fan base at his shows. He explains that he's not only seeing bigger crowds, but a wider age range within the audience. Nichols' next performance will be at the Lea County Fair in Lovington, New Mexico on Thursday.
