Joe Nichols Inspires Kids

Joe Nichols made a special stop in Easley, S. C., to perform for the students at John T. Simpson Alternative School, May 20.

Teacher Sonya Boyles had adopted Joe's hit, "The Impossible" as the theme for her STARS (Students Taking Active Responsibility) class. She and her students began a letter-writing campaign to Joe last year. Joe made the side trip to Easley while en route to a performance in Asheville, N.C., and called the teacher the night before to organize the impromptu performance. "These kids find themselves in a situation not of their making," Joe says. "I think it's great that their teacher is trying to teach them that nothing is impossible, and that you should never give up. And she didn't with me. Heck, I felt like if I didn't get over to the school and do this performance for the kids, she'd put it on my permanent record! It was a trip we were happy to make and I applaud Sonya and her students for their hard work."
