Joe Nichols’ ‘Yeah’ Soars to Top 5
Joe Nichols might be heading for his fifth No. 1 hit with his latest single, ‘Yeah.’ The song, which is the second single from his ‘Crickets’ album, is currently in the Top 5 and climbing.
‘Yeah’ follows the debut single from ‘Crickets,’ ‘Sunny and 75,’ which also soared to the top of the charts and earned gold status, signifying sales in excess of 500,000 units. But while Nichols is thrilled to be back on the airwaves, he admits it was a painful journey to land back on his feet, after several years of disappointing album sales and few hit singles.
“It’s not like I left radio when I was on top,” he admits. “I’d kind of limped off, and I know the appearance of that. It looked like the end of my career. So it was scary to go back to radio with something completely new and say, ‘I’m back. New deal. New songs. Tell me what you think.’”
To celebrate the good news, and his Facebook page exceeding one million ‘likes,’ the singer-songwriter is partnering with Tunespeak and giving fans a chance to win several exclusive prizes, including a Joe Nichols branded acoustic guitar, meet and greet passes to an upcoming show, a personal phone call from Nichols himself, a signed ‘Crickets’ CD and much more. Points are given for various digital activities, including listening to music, watching music videos and sharing events and pictures on social media. The fans with the most points win the prizes.
Details on the contest are available here.
Nichols is currently crossing the country on tour, performing several solo shows, as well as serving as the opening act for Lady Antebellum on several of their Take Me Downtown Tour dates. See a list of all of his upcoming performances here.
