Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville recording artist Jerrod Niemann is starting 2012 off by celebrating his first RIAA-certified Platinum Digital single for his #1 hit “Lover, Lover.” The lead single off Niemann’s chart-topping album, Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, also features the Top Five hit and RIAA-certified Gold Digital single, “What Do You Want.”

“To have a Platinum single is mind-blowing,” shares Niemann. “It’s just truly a dream come true for me. “To know that people have thought ‘Man, I care about this enough to own it,’ whether it’s to get over somebody or just to, you know, ignore the words and kick your shoes off in the sun, it doesn’t matter. It’s just amazing to me.”

Niemann will hit the road with Miranda Lambert on her “On Fire” tour when it kicks off Thursday, January 12th in Rockford, IL.
