Jerrod Niemann Banks $100,000 for Charity

Jerrod Niemann

When Jerrod Niemann became a Back Seat Buckers Celebrity Stock Contractor in January, he aptly named the bull he selected “High Noon” after his third major album, which was released in March of this year and became hugely successful, garnering the artist’s second No.1 hit single, “Drink To That All Night.” High Noon has now lived up to the success of his namesake, winning the 2014 Back Seat Buckers grand prize and $100,000 in prize money at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nev. Earlier this year, High Noon also won $2,250 after placing 4th/5th in the Springfield Invitational. As Niemann announced earlier this year, he will be donating all the bull’s earnings to his nonprofit, Free the Music USA (FTMUSA), an organization dedicated to supporting music education collecting used instruments for children and teens in need, named for his 2012 album, Free The Music.

“I’m still smiling thinking about the amazing news,” says Niemann. “When teaming up with my friends at Back Seat Buckers to purchase a bull to compete in rodeos for charity, I was very excited. I was hoping we’d be able to get in there with High Noon and raise some funds for children and their opportunities to have music as a steady part of their lives [via FreeTheMusicUSA.org], but I didn’t realize we could be blessed enough to do so well. A huge thanks to Scott Accomazzo and everyone else at the Ace of Spades Ranch in Stepenville, Texas for their hard work with High Noon.”

Back Seat Buckers (BSB) is the turnkey bull ownership program created by PBR and ABBI. It allows anyone to become a stock contractor and provides complete care, housing and training for bulls during their first year of ABBI competition. Niemann joins an impressive line of past celebrity bull owners, including Jared Allen, John Elway, Boomer Esiason, Wayne Gretzky and Reggie Jackson.

Niemann also recently announced his headlining Get Your Buzz Back Tour, which kicked off in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Oct. 24. Donations to FTMUSA in the form of gently used instruments will be collected at each stop on the tour. His latest single, “Buzz Back Girl,” was just released to country radio and is currently top 40 and climbing the charts.

My buddy Corey Frizzell and I agree that no one else deserves this night more than Whitey.

Details on country crooner Jerrod Niemann’s imminent nuptial plans with fiancée, Morgan Petek in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Sunday, October 12th, have been revealed exclusively to People Magazine. In lieu of wedding gifts, Niemann and Petek have requested donations be made to Niemann’s recently established non-profit organization, Free The Music USA.

Born out of the couple’s deeply rooted belief that every child deserves the opportunity to explore their own musical talent, Free The Music USA is dedicated to collecting used musical instruments and giving them to children in need. Philanthropy has always been a cornerstone of Niemann and Petek’s relationship, and their shared passion for promoting music education is perfectly reflected in Free The Music USA. Donations in honor of their upcoming nuptials can be made here.

Niemann made headlines recently, capturing the attention of Music Row, with maverick creativity and on-stage antics at his first headlining performance at the iconic Ryman Auditorium on Friday, September 12th. Although he has played her hallowed stage on occasion, Niemann fulfilled a lifelong dream on Friday by having his name appear on the ticket as the marquee act. Openers Logan Mize and Chris Lane amped up the crowd for Niemann’s unforgettable 75-minute set, which included his current single “Buzz Back Girl,” “Lover, Lover,” “Donkey,” as well as fan-favorite “One More Drinkin’ Song.”

“From stepping on the stage at the Ryman the other night, to this very moment, I still can’t believe I’ve had the great honor of a headlining a show at The Mother Church Of Country Music,” says Niemann. “From all of the familiar faces in the auditorium that night, to the first timers, I must say the crowd took the show to another level. I will never forget or take for granted the way they made me and the guys feel. Chris [Lane] and Logan [Mize] really set the tone for an amazing night and played awesome sets. Simply a dream come true.”

Niemann found huge success this year with his RIAA Platinum-certified multi-week number one hit “Drink to That All Night” from his third major label release High Noon. He recently announced his headlining Get Your Buzz Back Tour, which kicks off in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Oct. 24th.
