The single, though, opened some doors, and Niemann next signed to Arista Nashville in 2009. His first album on a national label, Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury, appeared from Arista Nashville in 2010. Thanks to the number one single "Lover, Lover" and its Top Five follow-up, "What Do You Want," the album was a hit, and Niemann followed it in the fall of 2012 with the wild, adventurous Free the Music. The album received some good reviews but produced no hit singles, so Niemann played it safe on its 2014 follow-up, High Noon. The first single pulled from the record, "Drink to That All Night," went to number six on the Billboard country charts, besting anything released from Free the Music. Two subsequent singles from High Noon -- "Donkey" and "Buzz Back Girl" -- failed to generate a spark, and after the non-LP single "Blue Bandana" scraped Billboard's Country Top 40 chart in 2015, Niemann left Arista Nashville in 2016. He swiftly signed with Curb and released the Lee Brice duet "A Little More Love" as a single. Over the next year, he worked on his Curb debut, This Ride, which saw release in October 2017. ~ Steve Leggett
