Nashville, Tenn. (June 20, 2017) – Critically acclaimed country artist JERROD NIEMANN did what he does best – entertained – during the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s  Songwriter Session
in Nashville, TN, on Saturday (6/17).  Well-known for his own
PLATINUM-selling #1 songs “Lover, Lover” and “Drink To That All Night,”
the singer is also a respected tunesmith having penned songs recorded by
Garth Brooks (including #1 Chris LeDoux tribute, “Good Ride Cowboy”),
John Anderson, Lee Brice, The Cadillac Three, Jamey Johnson and Blake

Niemann shared a number of stories from songs spanning his 10 plus year
career – with some written from heartache and others following
late-night antics – for the full house at Ford Theater. He kicked off
the event sharing the backstory on how he ended up writing three songs
for Brooks, and the unexpected call he received from the legend himself
while driving his mother to the airport. Niemann, who came up in the
industry around the same time as close friends and artists Brice,
Johnson and Randy Houser, also spoke to the importance of writing with
people that you know have your back. “It’s so much easier to succeed as a
team with people that are there for you,” he explained. Niemann also
performed a couple of Johnson’s songs that he co-wrote, “My Saving
Grace” and “Redneck Side of Me.”

Showing off his sense of humor, Niemann recalled a time when Country
radio wasn’t playing drinking songs – and he had just submitted an
entire collection of songs on the topic to his publisher. She replied to
him noting, “Taylor Swift isn’t recording drinking songs. Can you dig a
little deeper and get back to us?” After being “mildly offended,”
Niemann recorded a song and got back to her with what would be his Top
15 single, “One More Drinkin’ Song.”

Niemann closed out the session with “Old School New Again” off his notable debut album, JUDGE JERROD & THE HUNG JURY.

Country radio and media are falling fast for the romantic lead single
“God Made A Woman” from his forthcoming fourth studio album – and first
with Curb Records. Rolling Stone Country praises, “’God Made A Woman’ seems to reflect an evolution for both the country singer and the genre itself.” Whiskey Riff
adds, “Sometimes you hear a song and everything about it stops you in
your tracks. The lyrics, the melody, what it does to you physically.
That’s exactly what happened to me after listening to Jerrod Niemann’s
new single ‘God Made A Woman’.”

This Sunday (6/25), Niemann will join 30 campers – talented in music,
with Williams Syndrome – for dinner and karaoke as part of the 8th Annual ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp
in Nashville. He’ll continue to tour this summer with coast-to-coast
dates scheduled from San Diego, CA, to Long Island, NY, and everywhere
in between.

Presented by SunTrust, the museum’s weekly Songwriter Sessions feature
songwriters sharing the stories behind their work in an intimate
performance setting, with audience Q&A. Learn more about the

Prolific Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann is speaking from his heart –
instead of his liver – with his romantic new single, “God Made A Woman,”
now impacting Country radio. Fueled by a nearly decade-long career,
Niemann is digging deeper with his forthcoming Curb Records album
featuring an uplifting duet, “A Little More Love,” with good friend and
labelmate Lee Brice. Known for clever wordplay and attention-grabbing
lyrics, the highly engaging singer-songwriter last topped country charts
with his PLATINUM-certified multi–week #1 anthem, “Drink to That All
Night,” from HIGH NOON – on which he co-wrote eight of the 12
tracks. Niemann first burst onto the scene in 2010, with his
critically-acclaimed major-label debut, JUDGE JERROD & THE HUNG JURY, which skyrocketed 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 all while offering a sincere nod
to the legends before him.
