With hit country songs “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,” “Sunny and 75” and “She Only Smokes When She Drinks,” Joe Nichols has been a mainstay of country music for two decades, bridging the gap between the genre’s old-school roots and contemporary era. It’s an approach that has earned Nichols multi-platinum success, three Grammy nominations, a CMA award, ACM trophy and – perhaps most importantly – the support of his idols.

The Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek presents Joe Nichols Unplugged on Saturday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m. as part of the venue’s 25th anniversary winter season. Tickets start at $48 with a four-pack option for $144. This show is part of the VPAC’s Pick 3/5/8 winter ticket package. Visit VilarPAC.org/joe-nichols for more information.

As an artist who’s both timely and timeless, Nichols has racked up a half-dozen No. 1 singles and 10 Top 10 hits. From his first radio smash, 2002’s “The Impossible,” to 2021’s “Home Run,” Nichols has proudly done things his own way, blurring the boundaries between country music past and present along the way.



In addition to his own hits, Nichols can be seen in Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup” viral music video and recently launched a “Cups Up for Toby” challenge to raise funds for the Toby Keith Foundation, which helps children fighting cancer.

For Nichols – an Arkansas native who grew up listening to icons like George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Buck Owens – keeping things country has been a lifelong mission.

“For the first time in a long time, I don’t feel any pressure,” he says. “I’m around great people. I’m the type of person who’s always striving for more, but I’ve reached a place where I’m grateful for everything I’ve accomplished so far. It’s been such a good run. I feel at peace, and that has freed me up to make new music that’s very honest.”

It’s country night at the VPAC on Saturday, Jan. 21, when Joe Nichols Unplugged brings some classic hits to the intimate 535-seat venue, celebrating its 25th anniversary season all winter long. Visit VilarPAC.org for more information.
