Jerrod Niemann has a High Noon – New Album Title

Jerrod Niemann has a new album coming out called “High Noon”. Now, for those of my generation, the first thought is the Gary Cooper movie and/or the Tex Ritter theme which was a hit in 1952. Although there is a correlation the tune has nothing to do with those two.

Look at this poster. It reminds me of Clint Eastwood, Bonanza, The Wild One, Jane Russell and Francis, the Talking Mule.

Sony

It is sort of a conceptual project, not unlike his debut release, Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury. That 2010 effort included skits, a mix of styles and the hit, Lover, Lover.

So what inspired High Noon? At Taste of Country, he said:

“‘High Noon’ is a term that’s been in my mind since I was a kid Growin’ up in Southwest Kansas, I actually lived in Dodge City, Kansas, where the old gunfighting days have such a historical value.”

“I mean, Wyatt Earp is the main street, and high noon, if you think of it, it’s always meeting your adversary at noon, and goin’ out there, walkin’ a few steps, and turn around and face what you’re most afraid of, right then and there.”

“So for me, every time any of us make a journey in our life for whatever we’re tryin’ to do –in this case makin’ music — I just think, ‘Okay, my adversaries are party poopers, and I’m about to face that so that all of us can have a great time,’ hopefully, listening to this record.”

The album drops March 25. Can’t wait.
