Straight from a spectacular performance on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday, April 7, singer and songwriter Jerrod Niemann will be bringing his act to the beautiful grounds of the Clark County Fair and Rodeo in Logandale, Nevada, today, April 10, at 9:30 p.m. With three hit albums and several chart topping singles, it is easy to see why Niemann has quickly become a fan favorite.
Offering a musical blend that includes country, pop, and rock, Niemann attracts a diverse array of music lovers while exploring a wide spectrum of emotion. Haunting music and lyrics are combined to tap into the roots deep within the soul. Pop ballads of yesteryear have a happy-go-lucky feel. The sexy, primal slow-burning songs make you want to cuddle up with your lover, the traditional country songs hit home, and the energetic high tempo songs give cause to just play.
Niemann really hits the mark with having fun. It is obvious he is not afraid to laugh and have a good time with his music. Putting on his partying songs are perfect for setting the mood in preparation for heading out for a good time on Friday and Saturday night. Singing along with Niemann will quickly set the troubles aside, get the burdens off your mind, and make it easier to take time to play.
Currently, Niemann is headlining his own shows, but he has toured with such artists as Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley. He has written music for such country music powerhouses as Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, and Lee Brice. His music has been well received within the industry, earning award nominations from ACM, CMA, CMT, and the American Country Awards.
If previous shows are an indicator, for his appearance at the Clark County Fair, Niemann will be playing songs from his three albums to date under the Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville label, including “High Noon,” “Free the Music,” and “Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury.” With chart topping hits such as the No. 1 “Drink to That All Night;” Gold-certified “One More Drinkin’ Song” and “What Do You Want;” and the Platinum No. 1 “Lover, Lover,” Niemann is a show certain to please. Tickets are $25 for the concert or $33 for a combined concert and fair ticket and can be purchased at http://www.ccfair.com/content/concert/index_html?page=concerts.
While Niemann is draw enough, there is plenty more going on this weekend at the Clark County Fair. Certainly one of the cleanest, most weather appealing fairs in the region, there are numerous activities and events to attend. Besides Niemann, the fair will also feature other live music and entertainment, auctions, food, craft and business booths, carnival rides, horticultural exhibits, livestock exhibits, a tractor display, and much more. And don’t forget the 2015 Wrangler Champions Challenge Rodeo on Sunday.
Take the short ride down to Logandale, Nevada, and enjoy the fair. You’ll be glad you did. For more information, call (888) 876-FAIR or visit their website, www.ccfair.com, or Facebook page, www.facebook.com/CCFnR.
