Jerrod Niemann just released his fourth studio album and first on Curb Records after signing his new deal with them entitled, ‘This Ride’, on October 6th.
This release is his most adventurous yet with a strong indie rock influence throughout. He’s taking chances and doing his own thing, which works well for him and something he is known for. I don’t think those fans yearning for a traditional country sound will really appreciate this newest album due to the heavy influence of indie rock infused with contemporary country. However, for fans looking for good music that is well-written and looking for an escape from the everyday reality of life, it will be right up their alley.
Be sure to buy it! It’s available everywhere that music is sold.
I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to hear the new album in advance of the release at the album launch celebration that was held at Hemingway’s Bar & Hideaway in Nashville just prior to the album dropping on October 6th.
It was the perfect setting to host the celebration that included all of the songwriters that he collaborated with on this album, label, team, friends, and media. This upscale bar/restaurant is new to Nashville with a drink menu and rustic-chic decor inspired by the renowned writer, Ernest Hemingway. I particularly enjoyed the Steve McQueen and the daiquiri. I found the food to be particularly tasty and adventurous. My personal favorite food they served were the brussels sprouts that were savory and oh-so-flavorful. I helped myself to 2 helpings of it.
It’s nestled in an industrial area off the normal beaten track near downtown Nashville. With the way Nashville is growing, I have no doubt more businesses will be popping up in the same area.
Located at 438 Houston Street in Nashville. Be sure to check it out if looking for something a bit different and an escape just like Jerrod Niemann’s new album, ‘This Ride’. Both will be well-worth your time.
