For most artists trying to break in the entertainment industry, authenticity is the ultimate goal. While many artists search for a certain image or brand, rarely an artist will come along who seemingly doesn’t have to try to create this, he just is. Nick Hickman is such an artist. A modern country act hailing from Knoxville, TN, this now-Nashville-based singer-songwriter doesn’t try to mimic anything out there, and instead delivers a high-energy, genuine performance tempering a passionate show with heartfelt and genuine lyrics that are insanely catchy and singable. “What you see is what you get,” Hickman says. “I do not edit myself, I do not censor myself. I am just me.” It is exactly this unapologetic and real personality that draws so many to Nick’s music.
Moving to Nashville in 2014, Nick first rose as a serious contender on the country music scene in 2016 with the release of his debut EP, Tailgate Dancefloor. While his first single “Rain” received widespread airplay and success on the Music Row Chart, charting in the top 70, Hickman was just getting started. A second EP’s release in 2017, called Let Em Speak, saw its debut single “Tipsy” reach #46 on the Music Row Country Breakout chart and generated a glowing response from radio program directors and fans alike.
