With a stunning batch of songs that push and pull at country music's borders, Jerrod Niemann returned with the best album of his career in 2017. “This Ride,” the singer-songwriter's fourth LP and his first for Curb Records, reminded fans and country radio alike that Niemann is one of the genre's most engaging vocalists and entertaining performers.
A singer of songs, he delivers a lyric with conviction and emotion, and is just as gifted in the studio, where he nods to history while reinventing the country sound for today's audience. Onstage, he’s a master communicator, and with his continuing support of the USO (United Service Organization), lives with his patriotic heart on his sleeve. But nearly one year removed from This Ride’s release, the relentless creator’s travels are far from finished.
“On This Ride,” produced by Jerrod with Jimmie Lee Sloas, Jerrod continued the outside-the-lines approach he began with 2010's Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury and its platinum-certified Number One hit "Lover, Lover." But he did so with a maturity and experience that only comes from a nearly decade-long career on the charts, the road and the radio.
