Check out the new music video for Jerrod Niemann‘s remixed version of “I Can Drink to That All Night” featuring Pit Bull. The remixed song has met mixed reviews from country music fans, but Pit Bull definitely takes things to a different level. Check it out and tell us what you think!

Tyler Farr, Jerrod Niemann and Chris Young performed for industry executives and Country Radio Broadcasters board members at Nashville-based event venue, Ruby, on Wednesday, June 19th. All three appeared in conjunction with the annual CRB board and CRS agenda committee meetings, held to plan Country Radio Seminar 2015. CRS 2015 will be held Feb. 25-27, 2015, in Nashville, Tenn.
Jerrod Niemann’s new single “Donkey” is either a love it or hate it song. And, for some hard-core country music fans, it’s too far from the traditional stuff. Jerrod sat down with RollingStone Country to talk about the evolution of the genre we all love so much that many think is getting lost in translation.
“I’ll be honest. When I first moved to town, I would have hated it. Well, hate’s a strong word; I would have strongly disliked it. Because I had the [mindset] then that even if it ruins my career, I’m going to fight for the tradition of country music no matter what,” Niemann said, recalling those lean early days when the Kansas native arrived in Music City.
So I went and fought and went through a couple record deals, and what I realized was radio, and rightfully so, they want to keep feeding a younger audience so they have people that listen to it. I think that part of our industry wants to move forward and be progressive and part wants to keep it [traditional]. People think if we go and mix other types of stuff it’s ruining it or it’s going to end something, but it all goes in phases, it all changes. I really had to evolve a lot in my mind as a music fan to understand certain things, and if you sit there and try to [sound] like Johnny Cash, and Waylon and Willie, you’re not going to go anywhere, because that’s what made them so great. They can’t be replicated.”
And even though Jerrod may be ahead of the curve compared to some country music fans, he get’s why they are upset, and he doesn’t take it personally.
The fact that they care enough about it to get online and be mean, that means they care about it that much. And it’s hard for me to really get mad about it, because I know how much music means to me.”

If you haven’t heard the (what I consider to be a train wreck) new single, “Donkey” from Jerrod, listen below.
ASCAP, BMI and SESAC co-hosted a #1 party to celebrate Jerrod Niemann’s second #1 single, “Drink to That All Night.” Co-writers Derek George, Lance Miller, Brad Warren and Brett Warren, and producer Jimmie Lee Sloas were honored before a packed house at Music City Tippler in Midtown. The hit single marked the first #1 song for Lance Miller, the second for Derek George and the fifth for the Warren Brothers. Publishers Warner/Chappell Music Publishing, Sony/ATV Music Publishing and StyleSonic Music, and label Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville were also on hand to congratulate the group.
Jerrod is currently performing headlining dates across the country and will join Keith Urban as direct support this summer on the Raise ‘Em Up Tour.

When Jerrod Niemann moved to Nashville from Fort Worth, Texas in 2000, his sights were not only set on causing mayhem on Music Row with his wildly creative songwriting, unique vocal prowess, and on-stage antics, but also on the realization of a childhood dream: to headline the renown Ryman Auditorium. Although he has played its hallowed stage on occasion, he will soon have his name appear on the ticket as the marquee act on Friday, September 12st. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 13th at 10:00 a.m. on Ryman.com.
“To say I am excited to headline at the Ryman is an understatement,” Niemann shares. “I remember when I first moved to town, my buddies and I would hang out in the honky tonks off Lower Broadway and the Mother Church of Country Music would always smile down at us from her perch. It’s a rite of passage for all musicians to grace her stage as the main act, and I am very much looking forward to having that honor.”
The Sea Gayle Records/Artista Nashville artist found huge success this year with his RIAA Gold-certified multi-week number one hit “Drink to That All Night” from his third major label release High Noon. He recently released a remix of the song featuring international superstar Pitbull. Niemann’s new single, “Donkey,” was just released to country radio and is currently climbing the charts.
Niemann co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks on High Noon, the 2014 follow-up to his acclaimed, musically adventurous 2012 release, Free The Music. Niemann’s chart-topping critically acclaimed major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the No. 1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want.”
Niemann is currently performing headlining dates across the country and will join Keith Urban as direct support this summer on the Raise ‘Em Up Tour.
