The title track, “Good Day For Living,” penned by Dave Cohen, Bobby Hambrick, and Neil Mason, ranked among the most added in its debut week and is impacting country radio now. The song and album already have critics talking:
“On this upbeat title track to his upcoming album — his first full-length project in over four years — Nichols continues with the signature neo-traditional sound that has been so prevalent on some of his No. 1 Country Airplay hits like ‘Sunny and 75’ and ‘Gimme That Girl,’ a blend of old-school song construction with a modern sheen.” — Billboard
“…Joe Nichols is BACK – and from the sound of his new music, he’s picking up right where he left off….It’s the kind of feel-good song that Joe does so well – one that fits him perfectly and one that will probably take you back to some of the Joe Nichols songs you loved back in the early 2000s (‘Good Day For Living’)…Country music needs more Joe Nichols. And I’m glad we’re finally getting it.”
— Whiskey Riff
“For his tenth album, country revivalist Joe Nichols doesn’t bother re-inventing the wheel. Instead, he pairs a buttery baritone vocal with heartfelt songs full of everyday romance and Friday-night fun—a tried-and-true approach that’s instantly familiar. It’s the sound of catching up with an old friend.”
— Nashville Lifestyles
“The title tune of Joe’s new CD is a rouser with loads of forward momentum and a can’t-miss chorus. As always, he sings his face off.” — Music Row
“...the feel-good track captures all that’s to love about living as soon as one hits pause, slows down, and appreciates the littlest things around them. The lyrics are simple and relatable — a good ol’ country song.”— Taste of Country
The album also features "Home Run,” written by Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson and Ross Copperman, “Screened In,” penned by Neil Thrasher and Anthony Jerome Martin,and"I Wanna Be Your Tonight,"written by Philip O’Donnell, Wade Kirby and Marv Green. The entire album is a no-doubt nod to Nichols’ traditional roots, including Saturday night dancehall stunner “Brokenhearted,” the light and fun “I Got Friends That Do,” featuring Blake Shelton, and the classic country tear-jerker “She Was.”
