NICK HICKMAN’S NEW TRACK  “FRIENDS”: A SONG OF CAMARADERIE AND UNINHIBITED NIGHTS

Published

NASHVILLE, TN – (June 14, 2024) – Country artist Nick Hickman has announced the release of the second single “Friends,” off his upcoming album to be released later this year. Co-written by Jeff Glasscock and Hickman, this tongue-in-cheek song captures the essence of camaraderie and the freedom to make mistakes during a night out. It highlights the joy and recklessness of friendship, embracing both the fun and the inevitable regrets that come with such nights. The new single is available on all digital music platforms now HERE

The official support video takes the song to new levels with visuals that elaborate on the lyrics of the song. Premiere partners AIM Country TV and Nashville Country TV offered viewers a first watch. The official video was filmed in Nashville and produced by Jordan Dziekan. Watch the video on Nick’s official artist YouTube Channel.

“The song “Friends” is just a fun summer anthem. We all know that one friend that you have to keep tabs on. That is likely to wind up in jail or in a ditch, I am usually that friend. So, it makes this song relatable to all who listen to it. Sometimes you don’t need a reason to write a song other than it is just what you are feeling at the time. Sometimes you just need your friends to let you be you and make the mistakes. I learn more from mistakes than I do anything else. Music doesn’t always have to be serious, sometimes music can be happy and make you feel good. We wanted to write a fun song that hit close to home.. so we did. I hope people will just blast it, dance to it, laugh to it, whatever takes you away from your day-to-day grind and allows you to be happy and free.. that is what I hope for everyone that hears it,” Nick Hickman proudly declared.

Co-writer Jeff Glasscock exclaimed, “Friends is a super high-energy song about living life on the wild side. In my opinion, the best type of friends you can have will help you have the best time of your life when you go out but also be there for you when you take it a little too far. All of us have that one friend who likes to have a little too much fun on the weekends, this song was made specifically about that friend! To quote the song itself, life is too short, get you some friends like mine!”

Despite working all week and having an empty bank account, the song embraces the camaraderie of friends for a night out, resulting in reckless spending and heavy drinking. While good friends might prevent such behavior, this group allows the freedom to make mistakes, even if it means waking up with regrets.

“Saturday worked all week and I wanna go out
Logged into my banking app aint nothing in my account
How do I work all the time but I’m still behind
Probably cause I do this every week despite my buddy’s reasoning
Friends don’t let friends go out when they aint got no money
And friends don’t let friends get drunk and run up a tab like a dummy
Good friends won’t let you get to the point of no return
But my friends do
Right about the time that first drink turns into four
My buddies see me stumbling my way to that exit door
They’ll probably make fun of me cause I’m seeing ten but she’s probably a three
But they know when I’ve had a few ain’t to much that they can do…”


“Friends” was recorded, engineered, and produced at Whiskey Neat Records in Nashville by Nick Hickman, Christian Santangelo and Jeff Glasscock. Session players on the recording include Andy Hull (Drums), Dow Tomlin (Bass), Jeff Glasscock (Guitars), Will Adkins (Keys), Andy Ellison (Steel Guitar, Mandolin and Banjo), and Christian Santangelo (Harmonies).
