NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 30, 2015) – Fans are clearly clamoring for more from Jerrod Niemann, as he helped draw a record crowd at Country Thunder Festival in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin the same week he set a personal milestone at country radio.
The Kansas native joined with other country stars to spur an attendance record at Country Thunder when 34,182 fans attended Thursday, the first day of the festival. Niemann is on the road the rest of the summer playing select festival and solo dates.
“Blue Bandana,” which Niemann produced with friend Jimmie Lee Sloas, is the first taste of the innovative singer-songwriter’s fourth album. In addition to being Mediabase’s most-added new song at country radio, the single had the biggest impact week of Niemann’s career with 83 adds at both Country Aircheck– and Billboard-monitored stations, surpassing Niemann’s previous career-best impact week of 72 for his now-platinum multi-week No. 1 “Drink to That All Night” from 2014 album High Noon.
Fans can now purchase “Blue Bandana” on iTunes and check out the lyric video on RollingStone.com to see what all the excitement’s about.
