Joe Nichols will make his third trip to Australia for a six-city tour that begins April 29 in Toowoomba, Queensland, and concludes May 7 in Melbourne. His guests include Jasmine Rae (who has recorded a duet with him) and Peter McWhirter. Nichols performed at the CMC Rocks the Hunter festival in New South Wales, Australia, in early March. "My previous visits to Australia created fantastic memories, so I'm definitely looking forward to another visit," Nichols said. "I can't wait to get back to Australia. It is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I think every person in the entire country is nice. Seriously, I haven't seen or heard of a mean person yet. And they love country music. Gonna be a great time."
