John Nichols Band - The Country Life EP

Although the John Nichols Band's EP, The Country Life, is but four songs, it still covers significant sonic territory. The best track of this song quartet is "Loving You Was Easy," a straight ahead country ballad. The rest of this consistent release is far more instrumentally upbeat, however.

The CD's title track is one of those country lifestyle pride song, a lyrical perspective prevalent in country music these days. And while many country artists are quick to prove 'I'm more country than thou,' Nichols ups the ante on his credentials when he sings "I was born in the same place as Patsy Cline."

"Luckiest Man Alive" will no doubt appeal to Jason Aldean fans. On it, Nichols sings about hot girls, drinking and Johnny Cash songs. It has one of those driving grooves that's as much rock & roll as it is country music influenced. Speaking of drinking, "Two Shots" is a song that begins with hangover-esque songs about the morning after. On it Nichols sings of trying to drink away his romantic pain.

With The Country Life, the John Nichols band sounds primed for commercial country success.
