With his brand-new album, Free the Music, in stores NOW, Jerrod Niemann continues down a very creative musical path, both as artist and as co-producer — crafting an album that blends a variety of instrumentation and recording techniques to make a very cool sounding record. And Jerrod brought that creativity into the album artwork, as well, showcasing not only actual instruments that were used in the recording, but also kind of a “step into my parlor” invitation to free the music along with him.  Jerrod talks about the album cover to Sony Music Nashville:  “The album cover, it…I think it fits the album perfectly. It shows a lot of the actual instruments that we used on the record, and you know, I’m openin’ up a doorway. I’m letting how we all feel inside out — everybody that contributed to this record — and lettin’ everybody else in. And that’s what it’s all about is showin’ a song to someone that you like. Say, ‘Hey, you know, I like this song,’ or ‘I like you, I’m gonna play it for ya.’ And that’s all it is to me is havin’ a chance to make music, but also you have to have a cover of the record, and that sort of I think represents the chaos that’s inside those doors.”
