I'm a story type of guy. I like to know where people come from. The events that shaped the life they lead now.

Same thing for songs. I'm always curious to know what inspired a songwriter to put pen to paper and come out with the final product.

Jerrod Niemann has had some interesting tunes and an interesting last album (Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury).

His current single on the radio, "Shinin' on Me", is straight happy-go-lucky and life-is-gonna-be-ok! With so much negative in the world, it's sometimes good to think positive for just a moment.

Check out Jerrod explaining how and where the song was written.
