NASHVILLE, TN Wednesday Aug.29.2007 / -- Joe Nichols turned a beer tent into a canvas honky tonk recently to entertain a bunch of diehard, rain-soaked fans in Rapid City, SD.

Wednesday night (Aug 22) in Rapid City, Nichols was set to perform at the Central State Fair, when the show was cancelled due to a very heavy downpour.

When Nichols saw several hundred fans still waiting around in the rain, hoping to see the artist, he and band moved it to the beer tent behind the grandstand, where they set up and performed a full set, giving those who braved the rain a special treat. ³

It was a little cozy in there, with me, the band and a few hundred people all hanging out under the tent,² Nichols laughed. ³But thatıs what itıs all about for me‹the music. These people came to hear some good old country music, and by gosh me and the band were going to deliver.²
