There's No Place Like Home for Joe Nichols
Switching gears from the road to the family.
A lot has been said about the price of success, but Joe Nichols says that that price isn’t always paid by the artist.
“With ‘Sunny and 75’ doing so great, it’s validating and that’s a tremendous feeling,” he tells Country Weekly. “It’s been worth all the struggles to get here, but the people that probably paid the biggest price is my family. Missing them and being gone a lot and not being able to be there and experience a lot of things with them, that’s worth noting.”
Occasionally, wife Heather and baby girl Dylan join Daddy on the road. “It just depends on the trip,” says Joe. “If it’s a long trip, then it’s probably not a good idea, but if it’s an easy stop-to-stop trip, if there are four dates in a row that are short drives overnight that we can get to with ease, then it makes more sense. We’ve done that before and it’s great. It makes the road feel much less like an away-from-home deal, and I appreciate that.”
