Georgia native Erica Nicole performed recently for the MusicRow staff. Her current single, “I Listen To My Bad Girl,” has garnered the singer-songwriter a Top 20 hit on the MusicRow CountryBreakout Chart.

“The support I’ve had from MusicRow reporting stations has been incredible,” Nicole said before showcasing her warm, earthy voice on the song “Thank You.” She followed with an acoustic performance of “I Listen To My Bad Girl.”

Nicole has been welcomed with arms wide open by MusicRow reporting radio stations, which led to an increased recognition of Nicole’s music by fans in many radio markets–as well as some impromptu, intimate performances.

“I was in New York to do some interviews, and I went to this cafe for lunch,” Nicole recalled. “One of my band members came up to me and said a cashier in the cafe recognized me and loved ‘I Listen To My Bad Girl.’ My band member told her we’d play it for her, right there in the cafe.” Nicole and her band set up and performed for the approximately 50-60 diners in the cafe.

Nicole gifted the MusicRow staff with sock monkey slippers, which have become well-known around MusicRow reporting stations. “I wore these after a long day of walking in stilettos during Country Radio Seminar this year,” said Nicole. “Some radio attendees loved them, so I gave slippers to the staff at every radio station I met with on my radio tour. It became a cute way to stand out.”

Nicole is in the studio working on her forthcoming album, produced by Kent Wells, which will include “Thank You.” “[Wells] challenges me to be a better artist, a better vocalist,” she says.
