Jerrod Niemann Releases Only God Could Love You More

Jerrod Niemann.

Jerrod Niemann has finally released a brand new single from his new album “Free The Music” this week. The singer-songwriter’s new single “Only God Could Love You More” earned him a standing ovation last week on the Blake Shelton Cruise. He was one of the many talented performers who headlined in the main theater with two shows over seven nights. Jerrod’s show included a full band including a 3-piece horn section, helping him stand out from the dozens of others performing on the ship. Stay tuned to Keepin’ it Country all week long for a look back on what happened on the Cruise.

The single is a co-write by Jerrod with Joe Stone and Lee Brice. About the single, Jerrod shares:

“Everyone who has heard the album, this is always the song they bring up. We didn’t put any harmonies on it and used my original tracking vocal. ‘Lover, Lover’ [Niemann’s breakthrough #1 smash] had a bunch of harmony parts, so I thought it’d be a nice change to have zero here, especially with the French horns and the other orchestral things we have going on.”

Check out a video of the single’s studio version below and let us know what you think – will it be a huge hit for Jerrod? His new record “Free The Music” is in stores right now!

VIDEO: Jerrod Niemann Helps Musicians On Call Nashville

Jerrod Niemann.

Back on July 26th, Jerrod Niemann made a very special visit to the Monroe Carrell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt to help launch the 11th Weekly Bedside Performance Program for Musicians On Call (MOC) Nashville. Performing his latest single “Shinin’ On Me,” his round of performances coincided with MOC’s ongoing celebration recognizing five years of service to Music City. MOC Nashville brings live music to patients’ bedsides from the top names in country music in healthcare facilities.

“Musicians On Call is an amazing program,” shared Niemann. “You get to meet all of these wonderful children and their families. They are going through such a difficult time and I hope my music can make a difference by brightening their day. It was such an incredible experience to perform - all these children have definitely made a difference in my life.”

Check out the touching video below of highlights from Jerrod’s visit to the hospital and what it meant to the children. Jerrod’s new album “Free The Music” hits stores this October.

Jerrod Niemann’s Sophomore Album to Hit Stores October 2


Fans of “Lover, Lover” hit maker Jerrod Niemann can finally rejoice. His sophomore major label album, Free the Music, will finally be hitting stores on October 2. The album has been a work in progress for two years, and features the summer hit “Shinin’ On Me.”

Niemann took his time recording the album and did so in a less-than-traditional manner. He used his live band, rather than studio musicians and also included brass wind horns throughout the record. For Jerrod, the album title is certainly telling. “Free The Music is an album where I wanted to do just that,” says Niemann. “It’s a project honoring many different layers and colors that have appeared in the country genre since recorded music began.”

The album was co-produced by Niemann and Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury producer, Dave Brainard. The album shows off his musical flare, especially on the standout track “Real Women Drink Beer,” which is a unique combo of rockabilly and reggae. He also collaborated with breezy guest vocalist Colbie Caillat on the ballad, “All About You.” 

Jerrod Kicked off CMA Festival last Monday, June 4, at his Fan Club Party with Lee Brice to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Nearly 400 fans attended the party, and both Niemann and Brice signed autographs for 10 hours to sign autographs and meet and greet each fan.

Devoted fan Drena Knorr was celebrating her birthday that night and said, “I appreciate the fact that they’re taking time to spend with everyone — that’s one of both artists’ best qualities. It’s been a really long day. All I want to do for my birthday is meet Jerrod and Lee.” She had patiently waiting in line from 1:30 p.m. in the afternoon to 11:30 p.m. that night. 
Niemann is currently supporting Miranda Lambert on her “On Fire” tour and will be announcing more tour dates  of his own soon. For more info and concert dates, visit www.jerrodniemannofficial.com.

Miranda Lambert made her first-ever headlining tour stop at the Bridgestone Arena last weekend during her “ON FIRE” tour. For her encore she brought out just a few friends along with her husband, Blake Shelton, Jerrod Niemann, Chris Young and her Pistol Annies for a group performance of “King Of The Road.” Turns out Blake can’t snap and she makes fun of him for it right in front of the packed crowd.
