It was also named one of the Top 10 Albums of 2010 by the New York Times. His 2012 sophomore record, titled “Free the Music,” featured the Top 15 single “Shinin’ On Me.”

Mr. Niemann has toured with the likes of Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban during his young career, and has also received award nominations from the CMA, CMT and the American Country Awards.
