Award winning country superstar Joe Nichols is coming to Salina. Nichols will perform at the Stiefel Theatre this coming spring.
According to the Stiefel, “Brokenheartsville” was Joe Nichols first number one country hit in early 2003, and it helped send the album into the country Top Ten. The accolades were suddenly flying fast and furious. The Academy of Country Music named Nichols its Top New Male Vocalist, he garnered three Grammy nominations, and Billboard declared “The Impossible” the tenth most-played song in 2003. Nichols and his band toured with Alan Jackson through August of that year, and saw the single “She Only Smokes When She Drinks” enjoy similar success at country radio. In September, the buzz around Nichols continued with a Horizon new artist award nomination from the Country Music Association. His second disc for Universal South, Revelation, and a holiday album,Traditional Christmas, were released in 2004, followed by the Top Ten hit III in 2005. His next record, Real Things, hit the shelves in 2007 and focused primarily on tender country ballads with a smattering of uptempo jams. Old Things New followed two years later in 2009. Old Things New was another solid hit for Nichols thanks to the singles “Believers” and “Gimmie That Girl,” and Nichols followed it up in 2011 with It’s All Good.
