About the Artists

Jerrod Niemann

While writing and recording his new album, Jerrod Niemann immersed himself in the history of country music. A student of music theory and production -- he majored in Performance Art Technology at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas -- Jerrod pondered a question that is heard more and more frequently these days: Just what exactly constitutes country?

His answer to that query can be found in the musically and technically groundbreaking Free The Music. "This album is my interpretation of how I feel about country right now," Jerrod says. [Official Site]


Josh Thompson

Josh Thompson's live shows have earned him a solid fan base and gained him plenty of respect from those other acts that dared to follow him – including Brad Paisley, Eric Church, Justin Moore and Skynyrd, all of whom have taken Thompson on the road. Turn It Up backs up the ferocity of those shows, but also reignites the momentum he established in the recording part of his job. [Official Site]
