Patchogue - Award-winning country singer Joe Nichols performed at the Patchogue Theatre in New York on November 12 as part of "Guys With Guitars."
He has always been praised by his fans, critics and peers for possessing one of the greatest traditional voices in the country genre since living legend Merle Haggard, and rightfully so. I sat down and chatted with the country star about his new CD and future plans.
On performing at the Patchogue Theatre, for a show that was presented by "My Country" 96.1 FM, he remarked, "It's great. I have never been up this far. I have done some things in the city, but as far as being out here in Long Island, this is something new."
His latest album Crickets, which was released via his label, Red Bow Records, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot Country Album charts. "It feels fantastic. This is a marathon and not a sprint. To have a big week and a big number like that initially is good. The end result is what we are looking for. We want sustainability. We want to grow and to impact fans from now until the end of next year and beyond that hopefully," he said.
Nichols revealed that his latest single is at No. 5 on the country charts. "It's rocking right along," he said. "It has been a fantastic ride to have radio and the fans to connect like this. This is everything we want."
On October 27, he performed our national anthem prior to the New Orleans Saints vs. Buffalo Bills game. "It was fun," he said. "I always get a hoot out of doing the national anthem. It is just a little scary since it is something that you cannot mess up. It is an important deal and a rangy song but I always have fun with it."
On October 22, he performed for "Fox and Friends" in New York City. "It was great and we had a great time. I was a little nervous since it was a little early in the morning, those are always a little scary, but it turned out well," he shared.
On October 8, Nichols was a part of an "up close" event for Nash 94.7 FM's Hill Country Barbeque Market, which was hosted by esteemed country radio personality Kelly Ford. "It was great. I had a lot of fun telling everybody about the new music. It's inspiring to me. I like the new single and I love the way the fans are connecting with it. So anytime I can share my story is a good thing," he said.
For his fans, Nichols concluded, "Thank you for the open arms and for the welcome back to the scene and into their hearts."
