About Joe Nichols
In his young career, Nichols has received four Grammy nominations, won every conceivable “best new artist” award and had the New York Times name his CD Real Things one of the best recordings of the year in all musical genres. The Rogers, Arkansas native literally burst onto the country music scene with two back to back #1 hit singles, “The Impossible” and Brokenheartsville,” and from that point began loading his trophy case with awards, honors and accolades. The hits kept coming as well with songs like “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,” “Gimmie That Girl,” “If Nobody Believed In You,” “What’s A Guy Gotta Do,” “Size Matters,” and “I’ll Wait For You” cracking the upper echelons of the country music charts. Nichols’ body of work maintains an impressive quality and standard. While paying tribute to those influences that came before him, like George Jones, the music has always had a fresh and modern feel.  “Sunny and 75,” his debut single for new imprint Red Bow Records, carries on that tradition.
