Country music these days has been flooded with young men and women alike that are all aspiring to be the next George Strait or Reba. With so many newcomers on the radio its hard to distinguish one from the other at times. There has been a need and a want from listeners recently to hear something different, someone that's not so "pop-country." Nick spent time in Nashville learning from people like Tommy Barnes, Walker Hayes, Micheal Peterson, Ray Golden, and many, many more. Nick played downtown on Broadway, in rounds, headlining shows, Mule Days, and so many more events. Nick recorded and released an old Tim McGraw song that was written by Tommy Barnes called, "When She Wakes Up and Finds Me Gone" which had great success overseas with its release.
While working and living in Nashville, Nick found that he was having great success and great connections back home in Idaho. Nick's love of the northwest, the mountains, rivers, family, and his faithful following was too much to resist. It was then that Nick decided it was time to come home. He packed up his life in Tennessee and hit the road.
