New Nick About 3 weeks ago (March 31 to be exact), I gave you all a little introduction to Nick Nicholson, an East Tennessee native currently residing in Arizona — and one of country music’s newest country artists.

I received an e-mail today from Nick’s manager, Cindy Goldney. She told me Nick just finished his new CD in Nashville, and some of the songs are on his MySpace page. Cindy also told me that two of Nick’s songwriters are Keith Urban and Richie McDonald (Lonestar). Nick will be opening for Billy Currington in Scottsdale, Ariz., on May 16, and is scheduled for be at the CMA Music Festival (Fan Fair) from June 5-8.

Copy (2) of KeithNC Speaking of Keith Urban, did any of you see that EBAY bid? Two tickets and backstage passes were offered on EBay, there were 48 bids. The winning bid, $4,502. The winning bidder was davienater. I think Davie REALLLLLY wanted to go that concert. It was a charity auction bid.
