article imageReview: Joe Nichols delights on new country single 'Hard to Be Cool' Special

Country singer Joe Nichols has released his third radio single "Hard To Be Cool" from his latest album "Crickets" and it is an awesome track.
It was the second most added country song at radio this week, with 48 radio stations adding it in its first week.
"Hard to Be Cool," co-penned by songwriters Rob Hatch and Jason Sellers, is the follow-up to his previous two No. 1 singles "Sunny and 75," as well as "Yeah," both of which are from his inaugural album for his new label, Red Bow Records.
The upbeat yet flirty "Hard To Be Cool" has always been one of my three favorite tracks from Crickets, and rightfully so.
Nichols' velvet vocals are smooth and captivating. The song's instrumental opening is slightly reminiscent of Hunter Hayes' "Better Than This," but being a fan of both artists, that should be perceived as a major compliment. The production by veteran producer Mickey Jack Cones is brilliant.
"She's so hot, hey, what's not to love, Heaven's little devil's got me all messed up, She's a little heart-breaker, and I'm her fool, She's so hot, it's hard to be cool," Nichols sings.
The song's lyric video, directed by Ford Fairchild and Christina Cooper, which features a breathtakingly beautiful brunette girl, is a real treat as well.
