Joe Nichols will release a new album, III, on Oct. 25 on Universal South Records. The album will include his current hit, "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off." Nichols said he wanted to record an album of hardcore country music that reminded him of his youth, spending time with his father and listening to artists like Gene Watson, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. He enlisted three producers for the project: Brent Rowan, Buddy Cannon and Byron Gallimore. Nichols' previous albums include Man With a Memory, Revelation and A Traditional Christmas.
