Joe Nichols Waves His Freak Flag With New Single ‘Freaks Like Me’

After two consecutive multi-week #1 hits for “Sunny and 75” and “Yeah”, Joe Nichols is back and waving his freak flag high with the release of his self-defining new single, “Freaks Like Me.”

The upbeat, straight-shooter…sure to become an anthem for traditional country music lovers, is available now at all digital retailers and is already having a great impact on U.S. Country radio.

“Freaks Like Me” combines Nichols’ rich baritone vocals with classic country guitar riffs and leaves you with an undeniably catchy hook. The song bridges the gap between the star’s signature traditional country sound and a contemporary energy that resonates with today’s country music fans.

“Freaks Like Me” lyrically captures Nichols’ traditional, simple values that continue to reinforce his brand of storytelling in an ever changing musical scene.

With lyrics like:

I always get the door for a lady/
I don’t care if she’s 4 or if she’s 80/
I don’t need a Jag, I got a tractor/
And I won’t apologize for things that matter…

‘Freaks Like Me’ is about being unapologetically proud of who you are and not worrying about being cool or what the other people think of you,” explains Nichols. “I’m a traditional guy and some people don’t think that’s necessarily cool, but that’s all right. I’m a freak to some people, but that’s who I am, and I’m proud of that.”
