Don’t miss this free show in the Lounge by up-and-coming country singer-songwriter Nick Hickman.
“My job is to entertain,” says country music singer-songwriter Nick Hickman. “I give everything I have in order to do just that.”
His energetic live performances, insightful songwriting, and strong vocals prove that everything he has, is everything he needs to satisfy an audience. Originally from Knoxville, TN, Hickman made the move to Nashville in 2014. Beyond writing and recording, the Music City newcomer made his mark on Nash Next, where he landed among the top twenty contestants. Music has always been a big part of Hickman’s life as he used to predominately identify himself as a songwriter. However, over the last few years, he has spent ample time perfecting his artistry and live performances.
Nick released his debut EP, Tailgate Dance Floor in May of 2016, which included the radio releases of “Summertime Southern Style,” Tailgate Dance Floor,” and “Rain.” On this EP, he had the opportunity to work with producer Colin Brittain (5 Seconds of Summer and Sonia Leigh) and producer, mixer, and award-winning songwriter Jeff Zacharski (John Legend, Mike Posner, and many more). “Rain,” (co-written by Brent Anderson, CJ Solar, and Mark Fuhrer) Hickman’s previous single, saw success in the Top 70 on Nashville’s Music Row Chart and received strong airplay across the United States.
Nick has been hard at work touring, writing, and recording over the past year and is set to release his sophomore EP in April of 2017 titled “Let Em Speak.” The first single off of the forth-coming EP “Let Em Speak” is “Tipsy.” “Tipsy” perfectly explains the impossible situation of trying to get over someone only to find yourself running to them with a sound of a ring tone. The spot on lyrical flow, rhythmic melody and Hickman’s genuine delivery combine to both pull at your heart strings and leave you humming the song all day. We have all been on one or both sides of this exact dilemma and “Tipsy” really does hit the nail right on the head when it comes to the pain and emotion hidden in it. “I wrote it from a very real and personal place,” says Hickman. “Tipsy” is garnering much acclaim across the country as people are genuinely able to relate to the lyrics, and it doesn’t hurt to have an insanely catchy melody. “Tipsy is the song that half of Nashville wishes they had. A hit for sure!” – Greg Almond, WGGC/Bowling Green, KY
One thing is a certainty, Nick is here to stay and is poised for a big 2017. It is hard to deny the talent, work ethic, and genuine love that Nick has for his fans. I assure you he is an artist that you will be hearing a lot from in the very near future. So hop on board the “Nick” train, there is plenty of room for everyone.
