Jerrod Niemann is preparing to release new music after signing a new recording deal with Curb Records in Nashville.

The 36-year-old country singer parted ways with his former label, Arista, in the fall of 2015. He has recently been on the road with Lee Brice, a longtime friend who is now his labelmate.

“One thing that Nashville has always been proud of is its heritage and I’m lucky enough to be a part of the most historic independent record label in the music industry and wear my Curb jersey proud,” Niemann says in a statement to Music Row.

The singer first gained attention in Nashville as a songwriter, penning “That Girl Is a Cowboy,” “Midnight Sun” and “Good Ride Cowboy” for Garth Brooks. The latter earned a BMI Award as one of the most-played songs of 2005. After a development deal with Mercury, as well as a deal with Category 5 Records that fizzled when the company went out of business, he signed with Arista in 2010. He enjoyed a No. 1 hit with "Lover, Lover," and has additionally scored with "One More Drinkin' Song," "What Do You Want" and "Shinin' on Me." In 2013 "Drink to That All Night" gave Niemann his second No. 1 hit.

“We’re delighted and privileged that Jerrod is joining the Curb Records family," states Curb Group CEO Jim Ed Norman. "His longstanding association and friendship with others at the label, both artists and executives alike, further enhances that spirit of family, camaraderie and teamwork, which are the attributes of any successful company and the characteristics to which we aspire each and every day.”

According to Music Row, Neimann will release a single from his upcoming album on Curb in the spring.
