Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann is one of country music’s most original and talented innovators. Jerrod’s new single is a duet with his good friend and labelmate Lee Brice, called “A Little More Love” and produced by Jerrod, Lee and Jimmie Lee Sloas. Jerrod is also adding the finishing touches to his forthcoming album on Curb Records which will follow his RIAA Platinum-certified multi-week No. 1 smash, “Drink to That All Night,” from his High Noon album, on which Niemann co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks. Niemann’s chart-topping major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the No. 1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want.” Second release Free The Music featured the Top 15 single “Shinin’ On Me” and the poignant ballad “Only God Could Love You More.” Niemann has quickly become a fan and industry favorite, earning award nominations from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association and CMT while headlining his own shows and touring with such artists as Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.
