About Jerrod Niemann
After almost a decade as a major-label artist, prolific Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann has put his heart on his sleeve like never before with the patriotic anthem, "Old Glory." Describing the resolute ballad as "100 percent heart, zero percent politics," the singer-songwriter wrote the track in honor of U.S. soldiers following the 2017 Tongo Tongo ambush in Niger. A veteran of multiple USO Tours, Niemann knew how much those heroes were willing to sacrifice in the name of duty - from missing their children's first steps and soccer games to holidays, anniversaries and so much more. He performed "Old Glory" live for the first time during that year's USO Holiday Tour, and is now bringing it to the American public.
Also in 2017, Niemann dug deep into his journey for critically-acclaimed album THIS RIDE - his first for Curb Records which includes the feel-good jam, "I Got This," the uplifting duet "A Little More Love" (with Lee Brice) and the classy romance of "God Made a Woman." Known for clever wordplay and attention-grabbing lyrics, the engaging singer-songwriter topped Country charts with his PLATINUM-certified anthem "Drink to That All Night," a multi-week #1 from the 2014 album HIGH NOON - on which he co-wrote eight of the 12 tracks. Niemann first burst onto the scene in 2010 with his #1 major-label debut, JUDGE JERROD & THE HUNG JURY, which skyrocketed on the strength of his PLATINUM-certified #1 smash "Lover, Lover" and GOLD-certified Top 5 "What Do You Want." His second release, FREE THE MUSIC, included Top 15 "Shinin' On Me" and poignant ballad "Only God Could Love You More."
From Academy of Country Music, Country Music Association and CMT Award nominations, to headlining and touring with some of Country's hottest acts - Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban - Niemann continues to make his mark by creatively pushing boundaries while still offering a sincere nod to the legends before him.
