Joe Nichols was born in Rogers, Ark., on Nov. 26, 1976. At 19, Nichols secured a record deal on Intersound Records before the label folded. After that, he endured the usual round of Nashville jobs that most aspiring young country singers hold down, from moving furniture to installing cable TV systems to selling steaks door to door. In 1999, he met studio guitarist Brent Rowan, who ultimately produced Nichols' 2002 album Man With a Memory, the first project from the Universal South imprint. Nichols and the song "The Impossible" earned a total of three Grammy nominations and "Brokenheartsville" hit No. 1. In 2004, he issued his second album, Revelation, which offered two Top 10 hits ("If Nobody Believed in You" and "What's a Guy Gotta Do"). He also released A Traditional Christmas at the end of the year. His career received a boost in the summer of 2005 when the memorable single "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" found favor at country radio. As a result, his album, III, was quickly certified gold.
