JERROD NIEMANN KICKS OFF OPENING WEEKEND OF HIS LIVE IN CONCERT: JERROD NIEMANN TALLBOYS AND SHORT STORIES HEADLINING TOUR
THE SPRING TREK TAKES THE HITMAKER BACK TO HIS ROOTS WITH A SETLIST FULL OF CAREER FAN-FAVORITES AND COUNTRY CLASSICS
NASHVILLE, TENN. (March 19, 2019) — Curb Records hitmaker JERROD NIEMANN made his triumphant return to the road this weekend for the opening dates of his LIVE IN CONCERT: JERROD NIEMANN TALLBOYS AND SHORT STORIES headlining tour in Kansas City, MO (3/15) and Indianapolis, IN (3/16).
Niemann kicked off the first of many intimate tour stops with one goal in mind – to go back to his roots – and he did just that. Not only did both shows bring him to cities he hadn’t visited in several years, but they also took him back in time musically. Delivering a curated set list, the prolific tunesmith led a sea of fans in rowdy sing-alongs of career favorites, which spanned over the last two decades and included everything from his #1 smash hits, “Lover, Lover” and “Drink to That All Night,” to his most recent patriotic release, “Old Glory.”
Keeping with the theme of revisiting where it all began, Niemann capped off each show by channeling his inner ‘80s Country star. The Liberal, KS, native paid homage to those who came before him by putting his own spin on iconic Country classics, including George Strait’s “All My Ex’s Live in Texas” and Alabama’s “Mountain Music” – tunes that helped mold him into the artist he is today.
Niemann will continue to fuel the LIVE IN CONCERT: JERROD NIEMANN TALLBOYS AND SHORT STORIES TOUR with back-to-back shows in Lincoln, NE (3/28), Minneapolis, MN (3/29) and Burlington, IA (3/30).

ABOUT JERROD NIEMANN:
After nearly a decade as a major label artist, prolific hitmaker Jerrod Niemann is taking it back to his roots and kicking off his LIVE IN CONCERT: JERROD NIEMANN TALLBOYS AND SHORT STORIES headlining tour this spring. His latest song, “Old Glory,” was penned as a patriotic anthem and inspired by Niemann’s multiple USO Tours. Continuing to dig deep in his journey, the Curb Records star released THIS RIDE (2017), which includes the feel-good jam, “I Got This,” an uplifting duet “A Little More Love” (with Lee Brice), and the classy romance of “God Made a Woman.” The tunesmith last topped Country charts with his PLATINUM-certified anthem “Drink to That All Night,” a multi-week #1 from the 2014 album HIGH NOON. Niemann first burst onto the scene in 2010 with his critically-acclaimed major label debut, JUDGE JERROD & THE HUNG JURY, which skyrocketed on the strength of his PLATINUM-certified #1, smash “Lover, Lover” and GOLD-certified, Top 5 “What Do You Want.” From ACM, CMA, and CMT Award nominations, to headlining and touring with some of Country’s hottest acts – Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban – Niemann continues to make his mark by creatively pushing boundaries while still offering a sincere nod to the legends before him.
