Joe Nichols scored his third #1 single with "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off," the first single from his current hit CD "III". Nichols, who burst onto the scene in 2002 with his Grammy-nominated gold-selling debut, Man With A Memory, had instant stardom with his two back to back #1 hits "The Impossible" and "Brokenheartsville" and garnered the prestigious CMA Horizon Award and the ACM Best New Male Vocalist Award the same year. The video for this song also reached the #1 spot on the countdown for GAC TV: Great American Country.
"This is the first of many great days for Joe Nichols and the newly designed promotion staff here at Universal South," comments Michael Powers, senior vice president of Promotion for Universal South. "I love it when a plan comes together. 'Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off' reaching #1 was the perfect combination of Joe Nichols, the entire Universal South staff and the songwriters putting forth their best effort. This is just a ton of fun! Boom!"
Nichols will soon wrap his 2005 tour and after a holiday break hit the road on January 20 with Toby Keith.
