Over four years have passed since Joe Nichols released a new full-length album, and the country crooner admits changes were necessary throughout that time to get to a place of musical freedom. Meanwhile, Joe reunited with Benny Brown of Quartz Hill Records, and he reveals why he walked away from his former label to join Benny once again.

“I think that is the beautiful thing about music, if you can have the kind of impact where people remember you, remember where they were or what they were doing when they heard your song, that is a pretty special deal. Makes this music thing about more than just money.” 

In this week’s Spout episode, he offers poignant advice for parents who have children considering a career in the music business, reveals the secret behind his good friend Blake Shelton’s success, spouts off on his love for sports, and lets us in on must-try southern restaurants. He even gives us a sneak peek into his next release.

Despite his 588 million song streams and 20+ years in the music industry, Joe Nichols sits down with TikTok star Josh ‘Bru’ Brubaker for a candid conversation for country fans worldwide that feels like two good ol’ boys hanging out in East Texas inviting you to listen in.
