Country music standout Joe Nichols‘ new album Never Gets Old is out now and contains a true gem— a cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s 1992 smash hit “Baby Got Back.” Fans of Nichols’ live show will instantly recognize his throwback country interpretation of the infectious tune, featuring comedian Darren Knight. Nichols has been performing this classic-twist in concert thanks to fan demand, and this is its first time on a recorded project.

Aside from Nichols putting his own spin on a Hip Hop classic, the rest of his album draws from country tradition in its truest form. The record reflects a timeless sound and features songwriter heavyweights Chris Stapleton, Zach Crowell, and Shane Minor. Standout tracks include the soaring tribute to the human experience of “We All Carry Something” to the traditional steel-laden sing along “I’d Sing About You” while “Diamonds Make Babies” adds a dose of light-hearted mischief.
