Curb Records Country star JERROD NIEMANN spent yesterday waving his red-white-and-blue ballad “Old Glory” in honor of U.S. service members and their families, sharing the proud new song with Fox & Friends and The Daily Briefing this Veterans Day (11/12).
With a heart full of gratitude and respect, the hitmaker delivered a spine-tingling rendition of “Old Glory” for nationwide Fox & Friends viewers, and then spent time with The Daily Briefing host Dana Perino to discuss the song’s powerful message.
In case you missed it, watch Niemann’s Fox & Friends performance of “Old Glory” here and Fox & Friends: After The Show Show here.
Written by Niemann after participating in multiple USO Tours and hearing first hand about the sacrifices made by service members – not only their willingness to lay down their lives, but also to miss important moments like birthdays, anniversaries and funerals – “Old Glory” salutes the steadfast conviction of our armed forces throughout history.
Niemann also used Veterans Day to speak at length about the song’s service member-focused message during a one-hour block of programming played on radio stations across the country. And last week (11/5), the hitmaker took the stunning new track to the NFL, performing “Old Glory” during the Salute to Service halftime of the Tennessee Titans vs. Dallas Cowboys Monday Night Footballgame and earning a stadium-wide standing ovation.
Niemann will head into the holidays with a set of select tour dates in, Ohio, Texas and Michigan.
Don’t miss out when Curb Records Country star JERROD NIEMANN gives a heartfelt salute to American service members this Veterans Day, performing the brave new ballad “Old Glory” on Fox & Friends Monday morning (11/12). Later in the day he’ll also stop by Fox News’ The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino, highlighting the song’s veteran-focused message and his commitment to honoring the nation’s heroes.
Niemann will also be heard on radio stations across the U.S. this Veterans Day, with a one-hour radio special containing music and interviews creating a freedom-infused celebration of all those who have or are currently serving in our military. Set to chat with fellow armed-service supporters like Lee Brice, Rodney Atkins and Dylan Scott, Niemann will dig deep into the patriotic inspiration behind “Old Glory.” Check it out here.
Named by Rolling Stone as one of the "10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week," Niemann describes the resolute ballad as “100% heart, 0% politics.” He previously honored U.S. service members and veterans with a performance of “Old Glory” at this week's Monday Night Football game (11/5) during halftime of the Tennessee Titans vs. Dallas Cowboys matchup in Arlington, TX. Bringing the stadium-sized crowd to their feet, his powerful performance earned an inspiring standing ovation as part of the NFL's Salute to Service campaign. Up next, Niemann will head into the holidays with a set of select tour dates in, Ohio, Texas and Michigan.
Curb Records Country star JERROD NIEMANN hit the field with the Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans last night (11/5), saluting American service members with his red-white-and-blue ballad, “Old Glory,” during halftime of the ESPN Monday Night Football game in Arlington, Texas.
Part of the NFL’s annual Salute to Service campaign – a program meant to honor veterans, active duty service members and their families which has raised millions for non-profit partners like the USO (United Service Organization) since 2011 – Niemann’s heartfelt performance brought a moment of solemn serenity to AT&T Stadium and was met with a standing ovation, offering a hand-over-heart thank you to all those who sacrifice in the name of their country.
“We’re here to celebrate the bravest men and women we have in our country,” Niemann stated from the stage. “For the last couple years, we’ve been playing USO tours. To just be a fly on the wall in some of these places has truly changed our lives. We were in Iraq on Christmas hearing stories about babies opening presents while their parents were away...And another guy told me he missed his mom’s funeral. It’s all of these sacrifices and so many more service members make while being on the battlefield. So I wrote a song I’d love to share with you tonight that takes you back all the way to the beginning of this beautiful country and everybody that has sacrificed so much, so this one goes out to you. God bless our military here tonight.”
Already striking a nerve with fans – who have taken to social media with messages like "This song is all heart” and “If this doesn’t give you chills, I don’t know what would” – “Old Glory” launched into the Top 30 on iTunes in October, indicating its organic groundswell of support.
Meanwhile, the track continues to have a deep impact whenever Niemann plays it live, and next up, the hitmaker will perform it on Fox & Friends for Veterans Day Monday (11/12). That same day Niemann will stop Fox News’ The Daily Briefing to chat with host Dana Perino, highlighting the song’s veteran-focused message and his commitment to honoring the nation’s military heroes.
Describing the song as “100% heart, 0% politics,” “Old Glory” was inspired by Niemann’s ongoing support of the USO – including the service members he’s met on multiple USO Tours and the sacrifices they make every day.
Since then Niemann has continued to support the USO, debuting “Old Glory” during the 2017 USO Holiday Tour, competing on an episode of Celebrity Family Feud in honor of the USO, headlining a concert at Fort Hood, Texas, which helped launch USO Fort Hood’s new Connect and Create program, and more.
Niemann will wrap up his year with select tour dates in Mississippi, Ohio, Texas and Michigan.

Curb Records’ chart topping Country star JERROD NIEMANN returns today (10/12), making the red-white-and-blue anthem “Old Glory” available now across all digital platforms.

Sung from the perspective of a United States service member and inspired by real-life sacrifice, the resolute ballad is a proud expression of something far greater than run-of-the-mill patriotism, and a soulful high-water mark Niemann describes as “100% heart, 0% politics.”
Last October, Niemann was watching the news when reports of an ambush in Niger that killed four U.S. Soldiers began pouring in. Knowing he was about to embark on his second USO tour, the longtime military supporter wanted to create something special for the troops he’d soon visit. He tells the story in a new behind-the-song feature premiering exclusively on PopCulture.com here.
“I would lay in bed before going overseas to play for our brave men and women and would think, ‘What’s my duty as a civilian?’” Niemann explains. “I heard some memories about missing first steps, dance recitals and funerals … and that changed me as a human being. A year ago, I was sitting on the couch watching the news and heard about the ambush in Niger. This song just fell out of me. These Soldiers are going through so much on the battlefield together as family and they watch some of their new best friends unfortunately lose limbs or lives, experience PTSD. As a civilian, I want to help spread awareness. All of that combined is why I wrote ‘Old Glory.’”
"Everyone knows those Soldiers are willing to die for their country," Niemann says, "but few think about the little things they miss every day." Read more about the track from USO.org's feature here.
Stressing the importance of giving back to those who serve, Niemann premiered the track to rave reviews during the 2017 USO Holiday Tour. It was just the latest example of his dedication to the troops – in 2017 he also competed on an episode of Celebrity Family Feud in honor of the USO – and since then Niemann has continued his efforts. In September, he headlined a concert in celebration of U.S. Army III Corps’ 100th Anniversary at Fort Hood, Texas, hosting an informal jam with service members and helping launch USO Fort Hood’s new Connect and Create program as well, donating new guitars courtesy of his FREE THE MUSIC USA non-profit organization.
With that continuing desire to lift up Soldiers in mind, Niemann was adamant that his image should not be featured on the artwork for “Old Glory.” Instead, he chose a portrait of the American flag itself as the song’s official visual – a tribute to Niemann’s grandfathers, who both served in World War II, and proof of his steadfast belief that “Old Glory” is about appreciation for the troops, not him.
