Local Wire

Nick Nicholson

There's nothing "alt" about the country music played by Phoenix resident Nick Nicholson. The Tennessee transplant plays straight up, rockin' country, a combination of twang and bang influenced by the likes of Conway Twitty and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Nicholson's opened for such kindred acts as Travis Tritt and Neal McCoy, and like a good country boy, he supports our troops through performances and fundraisers. "To this day, nothing makes me prouder than singing on behalf of my country," says Nicholson, who served in the Air Force for eight years. The blue-eyed country crooner is currently working on his debut CD (scheduled for a fall release), and in the meantime, he continues to support charity events like Ronald McDonald House through his heartfelt, down-home performances.
