In “Drink to That All Night” style, Jerrod Niemann recently hosted a whiskey tasting during his listening party for his yet-to-be-titled forthcoming album. Niemann noted at the event, at the Bell Tower in Nashville, that his new album has “more songs from the heart and less songs from the liver.”

That’s certainly true of Niemann’s new single, "God Made a Woman." Written by Michael Ray, Joel Shewmake and Jeff Hyde, "God Made a Woman" reveals the gentler side of Niemann as an artist.

"Then God made a woman / Fall for a man / Didn’t have much goin’ / But his life began when she took his hand / The sky turned blue / The clouds parted / Light shined on a lonely heart / When God made a woman," he sings.

Niemann said it’s his favorite song that he’s ever recorded, and debuted the single at the Grand Ole Opry the following night (March 3).

"You realize that you go through life trying to find that one person that makes you a better person," Niemann said from the Opry stage. "And you realize the weight of the world is much easier to carry on two sets of shoulders… [This song] means the world to me."

Niemann headlined the Opry that night, finishing the show with "God Made a Woman" to one of the largest ovations of the evening.

"God Made a Woman" was released digitally on Friday (March 17). Niemann's new album does not yet have a release date.
