Jerrod Niemann Hints at Recording a Christmas Album in Near Future
This holiday season, Jerrod Niemann released a 'Mistletoe Mix' of his current single, 'One More Drinkin' Song.' The original version of the tune became an instant hit with Niemann's fans, and the new Christmas-themed rendition has them wanting more holiday tuned from the singer.
"The song has spawned an idea for me to record a Christmas album or just an EP," Niemann reveals to Taste of Country. "I have some Christmas songs that I’ve written [laughs] and they’re just sitting around collecting … snow! I haven’t even mentioned it to my label, but it just spawned the idea to try to make it happen … something for fun."
Niemann says the seasonal album (or EP) would ideally be a mixture of originals and classics for the most festive time of year. "I have some new songs that I’ve written, but I think it would be smart to at least include one or two of your favorite Christmas classics," he notes. "I know people get sick of them, but there’s got to be a few that are still not burned out on a lot of play lists."
But fans don't need to wait an entire year before hearing new music from their favorite singer-songwriter. Niemann is currently putting the finishing touches on his next album, which he's hoping to have a first single from in the springtime.
