Joe Nichols, the Rogers native who's lately been tearing it up on the charts, isn't exactly a throwback. He's well coifed, wears an earring and, at least based on his videos, favors the kind of generic rocker-wear that rappers and country stars, but not rockers, love so much. But in an era where just about every country star, regardless of style, aims for rock 'n' roll in his sound, Nichols is the rare star who, even at his rowdiest ("Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off") or most anthemic ("Gimme That Girl"), still sounds laid back. Which is just what you want to hear at an outdoor show in a vacant lot adjacent to the East End Baptist Church. A few days before he plays Magic Springs, Nichols comes to Saline County to help raise money to rebuild the East End Fire Department, which was destroyed by a tornado in May.
