I remember Nickel Creek from back in the early ’00s. Back then I would watch CMT all the time and Nickel Creek had videos playing round the clock back then. They were big time. They never really had big success on mainstream country radio, but people loved their videos and really bought their albums like crazy.
I’m a little behind on this one because Nickel Creek has comeback and they’re latest album is already a big hit. Here is the first single from that new record, Destination.
Destination – Nickel Creek
There is no act like Nickel Creek. They sound as good as ever. There is just magic that happens when these three get together. They’re incredibly talented and I’m sure they’ve worked hard to hone those talents since they were kids. It’s amazing to hear music like this because you don’t really hear it much anymore.
Back in the ’00s there was a little hint of a bluegrass sensation in the world. Maybe it was a precursor to the independent music we’ve gotten over the last few years with bands like The Lumineers and others. Was Nickel Creek ahead of their time? I don’t think so. They came along at a great time and it’s really great to have them back once again.
This song is really good. It’s catchy, but it sounds like a classic Nickel Creek song. It’s something I’m sure the fans have already fallen in love with and it’s making me want to see if they’re coming to my area on tour.
