He’s the man who went straight to number-one with his smash, “Lover, Lover,” and now Jerrod Niemann is back this Tuesday with his new album, Free the Music — his first new release since topping the country album chart and landing among The New York Times‘ Top 10 Albums of 2010 with his Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury collection. Jerrrod is co-producing and writing or co-writing all of the albums songs.  Very cool music, on Free The Music.  Jerrod makes music that is anything but ordinary.  “Free the Music has so many different meanings to me. It bein’ the name of the album represents a lot. It’s…when you see the words ‘free the music,’ I hope that you think, ‘That’s what I want to do when I get off work,’ or when I get out of school or when kids are too loud or husband or wife or whoever — just when you need a minute to yourself — that’s what we made this album for. Because we freed our minds to make this album. We took all musical rules that we had known, and we threw them out the window and just rolled with it, you know, with all these different things that inspired us. And that’s what Free the Music is about. It’s about just escaping from the moment that you don’t  want to be in.”
