Top 5 Reasons You Want to See Jerrod Niemann in Grand Junction
Singer-songwriter-arranger Jerrod Niemann is making his way back to Grand Junction, and you will most definitely want to be there. Here are five rock-solid reasons why.
This awesome concert featuring Jerrod Niemann is only a week away. That's right, it's coming up Tuesday, February 18, at Warehouse 25sixtyfive Kitchen + Bar. This isn't the first time Niemann has made his way to Western Colorado. You may recall seeing him a few years back at Country Jam.
Jerrod Niemann is one of my favorite contemporary Country artists. In addition to his skill as a performer, he's also an excellent song-writer, arranger, not to mention something of a music historian.
I've had a chance to hang out with the guy a handful of times, and he's a riot. Don't forget, he's from our neck of the woods, sort-of. Niemann was born in Harper, Kansas and raised in Liberal, Kansas. Off the top of my head, I can only think of five Country artists from Kansas to be signed to record deals: Martina McBride, Logan Mize, Joe Don Rooney, Chely Wright, and Jerrod Niemann.
Looking back, I believe the last time I saw Jerrod Niemann in concert was a few years back at Fiddler's Green while he was on tour with Keith Urban. That was a KILLER show.
Why should you set aside an evening and fork over your hard-earned dollars to catch Jerrod Niemann in concert? Here are my top five reasons why:
- He has written or co-written three songs for Garth Brooks: Good Ride Cowboy, That Girl is a Cowboy, and Midnight Sun.
- He lists his influences as Lefty Frizzell, Keith Whitley, and George Strait
- He is a real start-to-finish kind of guy. Do you recall the song "Lover, Lover." Take a listen to the backup vocals on that track. All of those voices are Jerrod Niemann. He told me once he put down nine different vocal tracks.
- He thinks of himself as a "music historian" more than anything else. In my opinion, we could use a little more of that in today's Country.
- This entertainer puts on a "fun" show, with lots of tribute selections.
Jerrod Niemann is making his way to Warehouse 25sixtyfive Kitchen + Bar next Tuesday, February 18. This is an all-ages show. Tickets are a steal at just $15 in advance. Ticket prices will go up the day of the show. The opener for the show will be Western Colorado's very own Williams Brothers Band.
This is going to be a great show. A pair of tickets would make an excellent Valentine's Day gift.
