With hits like "Yeah", "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off", "Brokenheartsville" ,and "Sunny and 75' you don't want to miss Joe Nichols!

As Joe Nichols began work on a brand new batch of old-school country music, he found himself looking back for inspiration. Back to his early career, back to true friends and the simple perfection of pure country music... back to things that never get old.
"Full circle is the term I would use," the Arkansas native says about his new project, fittingly titled Never Gets Old. "The whole theme of the record is 'Let's get back to where it all began for me. Let's get back to where my passion for music began."
From 2002's Man With a Memory on, Nichols harnessed that passion as a steady hit maker, racking up six Number Ones and eight Top 10s, including chart-topping modern classics like "Brokenheartsville" and "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off." He's a four-time Grammy nominee, an ACM, Billboard, CMA, and CMT Award winner, and his last album offering, Crickets, kept the success going, sending both "Yeah" and "Sunny and 75" to Platinum-certified Number One status.
But then four years went by - the longest span between releases of his career - as Nichols dug in to reconnect with his calling. In Never Gets Old, he's done just that.
"Instead of us making something that's built for instant success, the idea was 'Let's make something we're gonna be proud of 30 years from now," Nichols explains. "I'm thinking less about what will work, and more about what I love."
