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. 

Stream or download “Old Glory” here.

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 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'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.

Curb Records’ chart-topping Country star JERROD NIEMANN helped salute the U.S. Army III Corps’ 100th anniversary Friday night (9/28), performing a rousing USO concert experience at the Corps’ home base at Fort Hood, Texas.

Attended by Fort Hood Soldiers and their families, Niemann deployed his entire arsenal of hits – including PLATINUM-certified smashes “Lover, Lover” and “Drink to That All Night” – plus his patriotic new anthem “Old Glory,” which the singer describes as “100 percent heart, zero percent politics.” It was a fitting tribute to a group of soldiers who have been serving their country with impeccable honor since World War I.

“III Corps is celebrating 100 years of battle-proven excellence as America’s Hammer,” remarked III Corps Public Affairs Officer U.S. Army Col. Myles B. Caggins III. “And we’re happy to celebrate this momentous occasion with the USO and Jerrod Niemann.” 

On his first USO tour in 2016, Niemann established a deep connection with the military, learning firsthand from service members about the important moments they were sacrificing to serve their country – things like dance recitals and birthdays, anniversaries and more. Then after hearing news of the Tongo Tongo ambush in Niger – which took place almost exactly one year ago today on October 4, 2017 – Niemann was inspired to write the resolute “Old Glory,” about the American flag, performing the song during that year’s USO Holiday Tour where he joined Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joe Dunford as they visited service members in Iraq, Afghanistan, Spain and Poland. 

A day before the Fort Hood concert, Niemann also helped launch USO Fort Hood’s new CONNECT AND CREATE program, a first-of-its-kind initiative at the base designed to connect parents and children as they learn, create and experience music. Niemann jammed with the military families in attendance, shared stories and donated guitars to the USO program, courtesy of his FREE THE MUSIC USA non-profit organization.

"It’s no secret that I have an infinite affinity for the brave men and women of our military,” shared Niemann. “I'm so honored to visit Fort Hood and play a concert saluting this milestone U.S. Army III Corps’ anniversary. Having the opportunity to support our heroes by teaming up with the unbelievable folks at the USO has changed my life. To help launch their CONNECT AND CREATE program and give back by donating guitars means the world. God Bless Old Glory!” 

“Recognizing the unique challenges faced by military children, CONNECT AND CREATE fosters the belief that music is a universal language kids can take with them no matter where they are in the world,” said Isabel Hubbard, USO Fort Hood Center Director.

Curb Records hitmaker JERROD NIEMANN is back at Country radio this week with the fun, upbeat song, “I Got This,” from his latest studio album THIS RIDE. Penned by a trio of Country’s hottest writers – Rodney Clawson (Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan), Josh Osborne (Kenny Chesney, Sam Hunt) and Luke Dick (Eric Church, Miranda Lambert) – the “strutting indie-pop jam” (Rolling Stone Country) was one of the Top 3 most added songs at Country radio with 33 stations on board first week.
"'I Got This’ really represents how my new music has evolved,” shared Niemann. “It has the vibe and groove that draws me towards songs. We used some of our very favorite tones and textures in the studio to amplify and uplift the lyrics and melody. Hopefully everyone will be toe tapping and singin’ along.”
Recently, Neimann had the chance to talk all about THIS RIDE and new tune “I Got This” with Suzanne Alexander for GAC’s Great American Playlist and Cody Alan for CMT Hot 20 Countdown. The singer-songwriter also shared the accompanying music video, which was filmed by director Ryan Hamblin in a vibey studio in Nashville.
Later this month, Niemann will join the USO’s 76th annual star-studded holiday tour as the musical guest. Led by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph F. Dunford Jr., he’ll have the opportunity to visit with and perform for service members stationed internationally.
“After a life-changing USO tour last year, I couldn’t be more excited to give my appreciation to service members overseas during the holidays,” enthused Niemann. “While I can’t yet say where and when we’re going yet, I’ll send updates with the troops once we get there.”
