Jerrod Niemann Hits No. 1 with “Drink to that All Night”

 

jerrod niemann

Jerrod Niemann recently scores his second career #1 song with “Drink to That All Night.” The debut single from Niemann’s new High Noon album, “Drink to That All Night” was penned by Derek George, Lance Miller, Brad Warren, and Brett Warren, and has also become a fan-favorite as a music video, amassing more than 1.7 million views to date on VEVO.

“Drink to That All Night” further marks Niemann’s newest RIAA certification, now certified as a Gold digital single.

Niemann is currently on tour and will join Keith Urban on the road all summer for Urban’s “Raise ‘Em Up” Tour. Visit JerrodNiemannOfficial.com for a show in your area.

“I had heard Jerrod’s record as it was being done because Jimmie Lee Sloas is a friend of mine, and he’s producing it, and so he sent me some tracks,” Keith Urban said to CMT.com. “Literally, it was when I heard about six tracks off that record, I immediately wanted to see if he would come out and join us.”

Niemann co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks on High Noon, the follow-up to his acclaimed, musically adventurous 2012 release, Free the Music. Niemann’s chart-topping major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the #1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want.”

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman Divorce Rumors are Rubbish

Keith and Nicole

First Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are getting a divorce, and now the tabloids claim the next big split is Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman!

Star Magazine is speculating that the two are about to face a very expensive divorce. An alleged insider says their busy schedules and time apart are creating “tension” in the relationship.

The article claims that Keith likes to flirt with other women, including his fellow American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.  The article continued to make claims from a “close source” that Nicole is fuming mad and that their sex life has waned over the years.

via Star Magazine:

“Nic is fuming, because she thought they were going to spend pretty much the rest of the year together, at their homes in Sydney and Nashville,” this source alleges, adding also that ”Keith and Nicole’s sex life has waned over the years. I wouldn’t be surprised if they hadn’t had sex in years!”

RumorFix reached out to a rep for Nicole who told them the story is “absolute rubbish!”

Our take on all of this is that Blake and Miranda and Keith and Nicole are just the subjects of another ridiculous tabloid rumor.

Country Music Brings Out the Best in the Fans & Artists

Easton Corbin

Last weekend, Country Music Tattle Tale was whisked away to Las Vegas to cover the events surrounding The 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards courtesy of Ram Trucks. The whirlwind of a trip included a sit down Q & A and an invitation-only concert with Easton Corbin, an amazing Saturday full of live music and fan experiences at The Party for a Cause and Ram Trucks Ride and Drive, and hanging out with a small gathering of several thousand people to cheer-on our favorite artists at the ACM Fan Jam.

I love country music for a variety of reasons. I grew-up listening to the twang of a steel guitar and the shred of a bow against a fiddle. But I continue to love it for more than just its sound. Country music is built of people. The fans and artists use unique opportunities like the events surrounding the ACM Awards to build actual relationships with each other. Even while being dragged around from place to place by publicists, they took the time to sign autographs and pose for pictures or just chat with fans who were obviously so excited to be talking to them.

ride and drive

At Saturday’s Party for a Cause at The Linq in Las Vegas, fans waited all day in the sun to catch a glimpse and a listen to their favorite country artist…big and small. Some waited in lines for hours to get an autograph, a handshake or a hug. And, unlike any other genre, the feeling of appreciation and gratitude is mutual. Randy Houser and Easton Corbin both paid a visit to the Ram Truck booth to sign for fans. Each fan got a genuine experience complete with a chat, autograph and or hug. The guys are well aware that without the fans, their dreams wouldn’t be coming true.

Saturday night’s show was indeed a highlight of the trip for me along with thousands of others. The gates opened, and within moments, fans staked their claim on the hot pavement in preparation to be entertained for the next twelve hours. Love and Theft and Austin Webb kicked-off the day on separate stages followed by Jerrod Niemann, Kip Moore, Joe Nichols, Chris Young, and Keith Urban.

Even while on stage, each artist took the time to thank the fans for sticking-it-out on the hot parking lot under the sunshine. Lots of individual attention was given with smiles and hand slaps. The sing-a-longs were loud and boisterous, and each artist seemed to relish in the moment. That is what makes country music great! The artists aren’t just on stage to put on a show. It’s their way of saying thanks to each individual fan that helped make their dreams come true.
