Joe Nichols Previews New Music

It's been a little while since we've heard anything from Joe Nichols, but the traditional-leaning star has a new label deal with Red Bow Records and new music on the way. Joe gave an exclusive preview of his new album at a Country Radio Seminar function hosted at swanky Sambuca in Nashville's Gulch neighborhood.

The crowd of radio and industry types heard Joe's new songs "Yeah" and "Sunny and 75," both of which are being considered as potential first singles from the project. He also played "Hee Haw," a novelty tune that might set some kind of record for naughty double entendres.

The biggest surprise? While Joe's stone country twang is still totally intact, the music sounds miles away from "Brokenheartsville" and closer to the layered, pop-leaning productions heard in numerous recent hits. Joe's first single will be out soon, so get ready.

Guests at the event were also treated to a special set by red-hot newcomer Rachel Farley. The 17-year-old singer/songwriter's debut single, "Ain't Easy," just made a big debut at country radio and she looks poised for a big year in 2013. Keep an eye out for an upcoming CW print feature on Rachel.
