Jerrod Niemann Goes For The Gold

Jerrod Niemann’s “What Do You Want” is steadily climbing the charts and it has now become his second RIAA-certified Gold Digital Single. Written by Niemann with Richie Brown and Rachel Bradshaw, “What Do You Want” follows his previous Gold Digital Single and chart-topping hit “Lover, Lover.”

“It is unbelievable. I have loved country music since I was a kid, and I have read so many books, and bought so many albums, and really cared,” says Niemann. “Country music is so much bigger than all of us, so to have two Gold singles is one unbelievable thing, but to me, in country music, that makes it even more special.”

Niemann will soon wrap the final dates on his co-headlining The Higher Education Tour with Lee Brice and Tyler Farr before joining Brad Paisley’s H2O II: Wetter & Wilder World Tour this summer. Check Jerrod’s website for full dates.

During a visit to Sony Music Nashville, Niemann was surprised with a plaque celebrating the RIAA Gold Digital Single certification of “What Do You Want.” He was also presented with a Gold Digital Single plaque for “Lover, Lover,” which hit Gold last August.
