I always get pretty excited when Joe Nichols comes out with new music. The guy has been through some changes the last few years, but it seems like now he might get the chance to settle in for a while. And good music usually comes out of those situations.
Joe is kind of that middle-of-the-road country star. He’s never been really at the top headlining bill, but he’s been having big hits and doing big tours and things for over a decade. He’s a traditionalist in a modern country world and he’s found his place and it’s pretty cool.
Here is his new single that will be off an upcoming album.
Freaks Like Me – Joe Nichols
I love this song.
It’s back to the good time rural roots and all the things that good people out there do. They don’t live their life for the reason that would make them fit in. They do it because it’s the right way to live and it leads to a good life for yourself and for those around you.
Holding the door for others. Giving people a smile when they walk by. Doing some fishing and living in the outdoors. Not wanting or needing much in life other than good family and friends and maybe a can of cold beer on Friday after work.
This is definitely a traditional country song with a little modern twist. It’s there in sound and style and I think it should go on to be a big hit and that’s great for us fans out there that like traditional country.
What are your thoughts on this one?
