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.

ABOUT JERROD NIEMANN:
Fueled by a nearly decade-long career, prolific Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann has dug deeper than ever before with THIS RIDE – his first album for Curb Records which includes feel-good jam, “I Got This,” stunning ballad, “God Made A Woman” and the uplifting duet “A Little More Love” (with Lee Brice). Known for clever wordplay and attention-grabbing lyrics, the highly engaging singer-songwriter topped Country charts with his PLATINUM-certified anthem “Drink to That All Night,” a multi-week #1 from the 2014 album HIGH NOON – on which he co-wrote eight of the 12 tracks. Niemann first burst onto the scene in 2010 with his critically-acclaimed major-label debut, JUDGE JERROD & THE HUNG JURY, which skyrocketed on the strength of his PLATINUM-certified #1 smash “Lover, Lover” and GOLD-certified Top 5 “What Do You Want.” His second release, FREE THE MUSIC, included Top 15 “Shinin’ On Me” and poignant ballad “Only God Could Love You More.” From Academy of Country Music, Country Music Association, and CMT Award nominations, to headlining and touring with some of Country’s hottest acts – Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban – Niemann continues to make his mark by creatively pushing boundaries all while offering a sincere nod to the legends before him.

ABOUT THE USO:
The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. At hundreds of locations worldwide, we are united in our commitment to connect our service members and their families through countless acts of caring, comfort, and support. The USO is a private, nonprofit organization, not a government agency. Our programs, services and entertainment tours are made possible by the American people, support of our corporate partners, and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.
