7. Revelation (2004)

“Great album every song is good it has an old school country feel, just the songs revelation and farewell party are enough for me to give it a thumbs up”

6. Real Things (2007)

Real Things - Album by Joe Nichols | Spotify

“If you want real country, this album is as real as it gets. Most songs are slow, but they are outstanding. This is a perfect album. Joe is quickly becoming the most underrated country artist of our time.”

5. Old Things New (2009)

Old Things New - Album by Joe Nichols | Spotify

“‘Old Things New’ by Joe Nichols is wonderful! I first learned about Joe’s music just recently and was surprised to have missed out on his gorgeous voice and wonderful country albums all these years. I prefer these kinds of albums to the way too loud and over-produced country albums marketed today. Do yourself a favor and check out Joe Nichols albums if you like good, classic, country music.”

4. Man With A Memory (2002)

Joe Nichols – Man With A Memory (2002, CD) - Discogs

“Common sense is something we all should need to keep going. Country Music loses its own common sense all the time by promoting artists that should never be considered country by all means. Joe Nichols makes me have faith in the future of Country Music. Because he can sing with that classic honky tonk voice in songs like “Cool to be a fool” or “Joe’s place”, and still be able to sing a contemporary country style song like “Brokenheartsville” and keep giving you the impression that he is doing a very good job.”

3. It’s All Good (2011)

It's All Good - Album by Joe Nichols | Spotify

“I can sum up this latest offering from Joe Nichols – FANTASTIC. Some of the songs are a little different but Joe brings his beautiful velvet voice out in every one of them. If you are a country music lover then this one is a must – even if you aren’t a lover of country music have a listen to this and I know you will be converted.”

2. Crickets (2013)

Crickets - Album by Joe Nichols | Spotify

“This is my favorite album since Man with a Memory, and that is really saying something with some other very good albums. I love the way this album has a great mix of old and new style. There is plenty of slow Haggard style and plenty of new more modern sounding country. You get songs that will bring you down, and pick you up which is nice. It is not a one speed album.”

1. III (2005)

Joe Nichols – III (2005, CD) - Discogs

“Joe Nichols’ album, III is another great set of songs from the traditional country artist. This 11 song set has quite a few “standouts”, highlighted by Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off. I’ll Wait For You, Talk Me Out of Tampa, That’s What Love Will Get Ya, Honky Tonk Girl, and Just a Little More are the other top songs on this compilation. It doesn’t quite measure up to the outstanding “Revelation”, his previous album, but still a solid piece of work. Joe Nichols’ traditional country sound and great voice will keep him around country music and keep him in the ranks of it’s top stars for years to come.”
