Joe Nichols is a country singer who bounced back from obscurity in a big way. Born and raised in Rogers, Arkansas, Nichols grew up listening to country greats like Merle Haggard, George Jones, and Marty Robbins when he rode with his truck driving father. Nichols landed a recording contract after moving to Nashville at age 19, but his first album was unsuccessful, and he was dropped from a second record company before he got a chance to redeem his career. Nichols stayed in Nashville working odd jobs, from TV installation to selling steaks door to door, before he finally landed another contract and the chance to make another record. That time, things went much better. Nichols' second album, Man With a Memory, produced the hit single “The Impossible,” which rose to No. 3 on country music charts. With that, Nichols achieved country music stardom.
Man With a Memory was certified platinum and earned Nichols three Grammy nominations and an award from the Academy of Country Music, which declared Nichols the Top New Male Vocalist in 2003. Nichols won the CMA's Horizon award that same year and also got his first No. 1 hit, “Brokenheartsville.”
After Joe Nichols' rise to success, his first album was re-released under the name Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other, and Nichols followed it with seven other albums, including a Christmas album and a greatest hits collection, released in 2009. Nichols has toured with Alan Jackson and Toby Keith. He's had two more No. 1 hits, “Gimmie That Girl” and “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off.” Many of Nichols' other songs have been favorites of country radio, including 'She Only Smokes When She Drinks,” “Size Matters,” “What's a Guy Gotta Do,” and “I'll Wait for You.” Inspired by country classics of the past, Nichols' songs range from heartfelt ballads about love to breezy, comedic tunes like “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off.”
