Jerrod Niemann      

Country music artist, known for his hit singles such as "Lover Lover" and "What Do You Want"

Jerrod Niemann is an American country music artist. Active since 2001, he has recorded two independent albums.

In 2006, he signed to Category 5 Records and charted with the single "I Love Women (My Momma Can't Stand)".

He has also co-written three singles for Garth Brooks: the Chris LeDoux tribute "Good Ride Cowboy", as well as "That Girl Is a Cowboy" and "Midnight Sun". Jamey Johnson, Neal McCoy, Julie Roberts, Flynnville Train and Zona Jones have also recorded Niemann's songs.

In early 2010, Niemann signed to Arista Nashville's Sea Gayle division and released Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury, which includes the number-one single "Lover, Lover" and the top five hit "What Do You Want".

His second Arista album, Free the Music (2012), has produced the top 20 hit "Shinin' on Me".

Niemann was born in Harper, Kansas, but raised in Liberal, Kansas.

From an early age, he was influenced by country acts such as Lefty Frizzell, Keith Whitley and George Strait.

He learned to play his first musical instrument on a Tracy Lawrence autographed guitar his mother won in a contest at a Lawrence concert.

Niemann joined the non-profit organization Kansas Kids, a division of American Kids, and continued competing in talent competitions.

After graduating from Liberal High School, Niemann attended South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, pursuing an Associate of Arts degree.

Niemann began his professional music career by singing and playing acoustic guitar in Texas clubs and bars, particularly the Stockyard Saloon and the historic White Elephant Saloon located in the Fort Worth Stockyards.

In 1999 he self-released his debut album Long Hard Road.

Niemann moved to Nashville, Tennessee in September 2000. He signed a developmental deal with Mercury Records in August 2001 but did not release anything on the label.

After exiting Mercury Records, Niemann and his band continued touring the club circuit across America playingvenues such as the Grizzly Rose in Denver, Colorado and the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville.

He soon traveled to Europe to tour with the band Kane consisting of members Christian Kane and Steve Carlson.

In 2006, he signed to Category 5 Records and charted with the single "I Love Women (My Momma Can't Stand)".

The label closed after this single's release, and the album Behind This Microphone was never released, although "I Love Women" entered the country singles charts.

Niemann signed to Arista Nashville's Sea Gayle division, co-owned by Brad Paisley, in 2010.

His debut single "Lover, Lover", which was released in early 2010 was originally recorded by the folk music group Sonia Dada under the title "You Don't Treat Me No Good," and was a number one single in Australia in 1992.

In March 2010, "Lover, Lover" became Niemann's first Top 40 single on the country music charts and in August became his first number one country hit.

The song is included on his first major-label album, Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury.

The album's second single, "What Do You Want", was released to radio on September 27, 2010. It debuted at number 49 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of October 9, 2010.

In May 2011, "What Do You Want" peaked at number four. The album's third single, "One More Drinkin' Song", reached number 13 in December 2011.

Niemann released his fourth Arista single, "Shinin' on Me", on April 9, 2012. His second Arista album, Free the Music, was released on October 2, 2012.

The album's second single, "Only God Could Love You More", was released to country radio on October 29, 2012.
