Listen to Jerrod Niemann’s Handpicked Labor Day Playlist

Listen to Jerrod Niemann’s Handpicked Labor Day Playlist

From Sublime and Steve Miller Band to Jimmy Buffet and Johnny Paycheck, Jerrod Niemann’s musical influences are as diverse as his catalogue of country singles, which include No. 1 hits “Lover, Lover” and “Drink to That All Night.” As his current single with Lee Brice, “A Little More Love,” climbs the charts, the Kansas native sat down with Nash Country Daily to build a Labor Day Playlist that both works hard and plays hard.

Listen to eight of Jerrod’s handpicked tunes on our Spotify playlist and check out the reason behind each of his selections. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend.

1. “Girl” – Beck

Beck is great for late-summer music. His stuff always makes me enjoy being outside on a pool, lake or ocean.

2. “Take This Job and Shove It” – Johnny Paycheck

Everyone has been working all year and is ready for a break. Hopefully after a three-day weekend this won’t hit as close to home for some folks out there.

3. “Drinking Class” – Lee Brice

My good buddy Lee Brice says it all perfectly with this tune. It makes me proud to be raised in a hardworking home. This one goes out to my parents.

4. “A Pirate Looks at 40” – Jimmy Buffett

You can NEVER go wrong with Buffett when it’s nice outside and you have a few days to chill. This is one of my very favorites of his.

5. “Doin’ Time” – Sublime

This song takes me right to California. I have a lot of family on the West Coast and this makes me think of them and enjoying Cali days on the water.

6. “Watch the Wind Blow By” – Tim McGraw

I like hanging out with my lovely wife when listening to this one. If there’s a nice breeze and some sunshine, it’s almost impossible not to be in a great mood.

7. “Is This Love” – Bob Marley

I spent some time in Jamaica with some of our amazing Marines that had returned from overseas. Anytime I hear Bob Marley, it reminds me to be thankful for those brave men and women. It takes me back to those great memories and I hope they are getting to spend some time with their families over the holiday weekend.

8. “Take the Money and Run” – Steve Miller Band

When you’ve worked hard, it’s time to finally spend a little cash on yourself. It’s easy to do when you crank up this one from Steve Miller.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
