It started as a joke, and ended up being one of the most popular parts of Joe Nichols' live show.  Click to watch Joe perform Sir Mix-A-Lot's 'Baby Got Back' and explain how his planned prank backfired.

Joe was just pranking the band, when they would start playing a song, he would sing the 1st line of 'Baby Got Back."  The band turned the tables and started playing the song forcing Joe to sing it.  He say the crowd went "nuts" and it eventually became a part of his show every night.  Check out his performance in the video below.

Joe says don't expect to him follow in the footsteps of the "rap" influences in country music.

"CERTAINLY CAN'T SPIT OUT WORDS FAST ENOUGH TO RAP."  AND ANYTHING HE SINGS IS "GONNA BE COUNTRY SOUNDING."
