Jagermeister Presents Jerrod Niemann
NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Jagermeister is proud to present an upcoming tour headlined by Jerrod Niemann in conjunction with the upcoming October 2nd release of his highly anticipated sophomore album, Free The Music. The tour kicks off October 10th at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville, TN and will play over 20 shows across the United States.
Jagermeister, the number 1 selling imported liqueur in America and the eighth largest selling premium spirit in the world, has a long history of supporting bands, both from a local level to national amphitheater acts. “From the first time I met Jerrod in Nashville, I realized his love for Jagermeister and knew this partnership would be a perfect fit,” states Cliff Rigano, Director of Music Marketing for Jagermeister.
Jerrod Niemann is no stranger to success. Free The Music is the follow-up to his Sea Gayle Records/Arista Nashville debut Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury, which debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and yielded the platinum-selling Number 1 hit “Lover, Lover” and Top 5 single “What Do You Want.” Niemann’s sophomore album emphasizes the early instruments that have shaped the genre: acoustic guitars and bass, fiddles, and even horns.
“I’m so excited to be teaming up with Jagermeister. It’s a perfect fit because we both come from German origins and both believe in the power of music,” says Niemann, who, as a writer, has nearly 10 million albums sold to his credit. Niemann co-wrote one of Garth Brooks’ biggest hits, “Good Ride Cowboy,” and penned two others for the Country Music Hall of Famer, along with songs forBlake Shelton, Lee Brice, John Anderson and Jamey Johnson.”

About Jerrod Niemann: Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville recording artist Jerrod Niemann launched a trio of hits with his acclaimed album, Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, which included “One More Drinkin’ Song,” the Gold-certified “What Do You Want,” and the Platinum #1 single, “Lover, Lover.” Co-produced by Niemann, Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury was one of The New York Times‘ Top 10 Albums of 2010 and featured Niemann as a writer on 10 of the 12 songs. Upon release, the album debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s Top Country Albums sales chart and remained the only major-label debut to hit #1 on the chart all year. Niemann has quickly become a fan and industry favorite, earning award nominations from the ACM, CMA, CMT, and the American Country Awards, while headlining his own shows and touring with such artists as Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley. Jerrod is currently gearing up for the highly-anticipated Oct. 2 release of his third album, Free The Music, which he co-produced and spent two full years recording. On Free The Music Jerrod and his outside-the-box co-producer Dave Brainard utilized a mix of classic and cutting-edge technology, reinvented instruments, and adhered to a strict set of musical limitations creating an unconventional sound for the country format.
