Joe Nichols biography (bio):
Joe Edward Nichols is an American country music singer-songwriter. Although he recorded his first album in 1996, it was not until the release of his 2003 single "The Impossible" that Nichols broke onto the country music scene. The single, which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts, was followed by the release of his second album, Man With a Memory.
To date, Nichols has recorded five studio albums; his most recent, titled Real Things, was released in 2007. He has also charted ten Top 40 singles on the U.S. Billboard country music charts, of which two -- "Brokenheartsville" and "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" -- reached Number One.
Nichols' father, a trucker, and grandfather were both amateur country musicians. Subsequently, Nichols played bass guitar and sang from an early age. He was known to busk for tips at a place called Rippy's in Nashville. At nineteen, he secured a record deal with Intersound Records before the label folded. After a period in the musical wilderness, in 1999, Nichols met studio guitarist Brent Rowan. Rowan went on to produce Nichols' 2002 album Man With a Memory, his first project with the Universal South Records imprint. The album earned Nichols three Grammy nominations for the album's first single, "The Impossible", which reached #1 on Radio & Records' country charts, and #3 on the Billboard country charts. The second single released, "Brokenheartsville" achieved even more success and became Nichols' first #1 single on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
After his commercial breakthrough, Nichols continued to be a regular performer at the Grand Ole Opry. A few days after his father died in 2002, Nichols performed the outlaw country legend Merle Haggard's classic, "Footlights," at the Opry. The following year, in 2003, Nichols won the CMA Horizon award.
Nichols toured with Alan Jackson in 2003. In 2005, Nichols released his fourth major studio album, titled III. The disc spawned his second Billboard number-one hit, "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off." Also in 2005, Nichols joined superstar Toby Keith's 'Throwdown' Tour. In 2006, Nichols teamed up with Toby Keith again on the latter's Hookin' Up And Hanging Out arena tour.
In 2005, Anna Nicole Smith met Nichols at the Grand Ole Opry and she became a fan. A Smith impersonator had a feature role in Nichols video for "Cool to be a Fool". Nichols performed two songs, "Wings of a Dove" and "I'll Wait for You" at Smith's funeral service.
Joe Nichols married Heather Singleton on September 9, 2007 in Savannah, Georgia.
On October 13, 2007, Nichols was checked into a substance abuse rehabilitation program.
