After a break of two years, Joe Nichols is getting set to release a new album. The ‘Brokenheartsville’ singer has a new label and a new attitude for his upcoming project, which is due in October.

Nichols’ eighth studio album will be titled ‘Crickets,’ and it marks a renewed sense of purpose for the singer, who parted ways with Show Dog-Universal in May of 2012. He signed with Red Bow Records in October. The new label is a joint venture between Broken Bow Records and Sony Music’s RED distribution, for which Nichols is the flagship artist.
