It's All Good
Label: Show Dog Universal Music (USO)
Joe Nichols' voice reverberates low and warm on It's All Good, grounding the singer on that finicky path that lies between traditional and modern country. Nichols' swoon-inducing voice sounds effortless, whether singing songs of love ("I Can't Take My Eyes Off You"), engaging in some light-hearted leering ("The More I Look") or commiserating about missed opportunities in romance ("Somebody's Mama") and in life ("No Truck, No Boat, No Girl"). When it comes right down to it, his voice is what elevates It's All Good from a good collection of songs to a great one.
