Gates Open At 5 P.M. Tonight For Jerrod Niemann Concert
Tonight, June 3, big time country artist Jerrod Niemann will play a concert on Dorchester's main street.
Gates will open at 5 p.m. tonight, the Times has been told. Niemann won't take the stage until around 8:00 or 9:00, but a live music will be provided by a warm-up band.
Tonight's concert is part of City Slickers' first annual "City Lights, Country Nights" street party.
For those who don't know, Niemann is a top-ten country music singer and songwriter who hails from Liberal, Kansas, but has gone on to become a Nashville celebrity.
Niemann's debut single "Lover, Lover", was released in early 2010. In March 2010, "Lover, Lover" became Niemann's first Top 40 single on the country music charts and in August hit number 1. The song is included on his first major-label album, Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury. The album's second single, "What Do You Want", debuted on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in October. In May 2011, "What Do You Want" peaked at number 4. 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.
"Drink to That All Night" was released in late 2013 as a single for his third album for Arista. The album, High Noon, was released in March 2014, and in April "Drink to That All Night" became his second number 1 single.
In March 2017, Niemann released the single "God Made A Woman," a song he called "my favorite song I’ve ever recorded."
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.
