Listen to Joe Nichols on iHeartRadio

Joe Nichols is back on top.  His latest single, "Sunny and 75" has reached the number one spot on the Country Airplay chart to become his first "Billboard" chart-topper in more than three years. 

His last number one hit was "Gimmie That Girl," which spent two weeks at the top of the chart in May 2010.  Joe says he's thrilled with the accomplishment. 

He explains that "seeing your song at the top of the charts never gets old," whether "it's your first number one record or your 50th."  "Sunny and 75" is Joe's fourth Billboard chart-topper. 

But the three-year, seven-month span isn't Nichols' largest gap between chart-toppers.  Four years and five months elapsed between "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off," which topped the chart in December 2005, and "Gimmie That Girl." 

Nichols' first number one hit was "Brokenheartsville," which peaked at number one in March 2003.
