Niemann was born in Harper, Kansas, but raised in Liberal, Kansas. From an early age, he was influenced by country acts such as Lefty Frizzell, Keith Whitley, and George Strait. He learned to play his first musical instrument on a Tracy Lawrence autographed guitar his mother won in a contest at a Lawrence concert. Niemann joined the non-profit organization Kansas Kids, a division of American Kids, and continued competing in talent competitions.

After graduating from Liberal High School, Niemann attended South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, pursuing an Associate of Arts degree. Niemann began his professional music career by singing and playing acoustic guitar in Texas clubs and bars, particularly the Stockyard Saloon and the historic White Elephant Saloon located in the Fort Worth Stockyards. In 1999 he self-released his debut album Long Hard Road.[2]

Niemann moved to Nashville, Tennessee in September 2000. He signed a developmental deal with Mercury Records in August 2001 but did not release anything on the label.[2] After parting with Mercury Records, Niemann and his band continued touring the club circuit across America playing venues such as the Grizzly Rose in Denver and the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. He soon traveled to Europe to tour with the band Kane consisting of members Christian Kane and Steve Carlson.

In 2006, he signed to Category 5 Records and charted with the single "I Love Women (My Momma Can't Stand)". The label closed shortly after this single's release, and the album Behind This Microphone was never released.[2]

2010–present: Arista Nashville

Niemann signed to Arista Nashville's Sea Gayle division, co-owned by Brad Paisley, in 2010. His debut single "Lover, Lover", was released in early 2010; it was originally recorded by the folk music group Sonia Dada under the title "You Don't Treat Me No Good" and was a #1 single in Australia in 1992.[3][4] In March 2010, "Lover, Lover" became Niemann's first Top 40 single on the country music charts and in August hit number 1. The song is included on his first major-label album, Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury.[2] The album's second single, "What Do You Want", debuted on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in October. In May 2011, "What Do You Want" peaked at number 4. The album's third single, "One More Drinkin' Song", reached number 13 in December 2011.

Niemann released his fourth Arista single, "Shinin' on Me", on April 9, 2012. His second Arista album, Free the Music, was released on October 2, 2012. The album's second single, "Only God Could Love You More", was released to country radio on October 29, 2012.

"Drink to That All Night" was released in late 2013 as a single for his third album for Arista. The album, High Noon, was released in March 2014, and in April "Drink to That All Night" became his second number 1 single.

Neimann parted ways with Arista Nashville in January 2016.[5] In March 2016 Niemann signed a record deal with Curb Records.

In March 2017, Niemann released the single "God Made A Woman," a song he called "my favorite song I’ve ever recorded."[6]


At the age of eight, Niemann was writing several songs a year. He found legendary Nashville songwriters such as Whitey Shafer, Dean Dillon, and Paul Overstreet to be very influential in his songwriting and went on to co-write with all three while living in Nashville, TN. At age of 10 he performed original songs in local talent shows in Kansas. After collecting several compositions throughout high school, Niemann recorded his debut album Long Hard Road in Clovis, New Mexico while attending college in Levelland, TX.

In May 2001, Niemann was contacted by Garth Brooks to collaborate along with fellow songwriter Richie Brown. Niemann went on to co-write three singles for Garth Brooks: the Chris LeDoux tribute "Good Ride Cowboy",[7] as well as "That Girl Is a Cowboy" and "Midnight Sun". "Good Ride Cowboy" also earned Niemann a Broadcast Music Incorporated award for being one of the most played country songs of 2005.

Other artists who have recorded Niemann's work include Jamey Johnson, Neal McCoy, Julie Roberts, John Anderson, Flynnville Train, and Zona Jones. Niemann has signed publishing deals throughout his career with Marathon Key Music (a co-venture with Warner/Chappell Music) and Sea Gayle Music.[8]

Personal life

On March 6, 2012, Niemann's tour bus caught fire. He was unharmed. Niemann credits fellow country singer Lee Brice for alerting him to the dangerous blaze.[9]

Niemann became engaged to longtime girlfriend Morgan Petek in New Orleans in late 2013.[10] They married on October 10, 2014 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.[11]
