Jerrod Niemann’s latest album is Free The Music. It took him two years to make, and as he told CBS Local in a recent interview, he wrote or cowrote every song on the album himself.
“This particular album we were taking a certain direction instrumentally,” he said, “so I had to write music in the direction of the instruments we were going to be using. It was definitely a tough task.”
He also embraced analog technology for the recording and made use of horns. “One thing about Nashville,” he explained, “is we always respect our forefathers and sisters who built country music before us. At the end of the day it’s exciting to grab horns from Bob Wills, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard and take that old technology but transform it into a new sound in our own way.”
