Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann officially impacts country radio with an impressive 43 first-week combined Country Aircheck and Billboard reporting stations spinning the irresistible groove of his new single, the Lee Brice/Kyle Jacobs/Phillip Lammonds-penned “Buzz Back Girl.”
The song is also attracting critical acclaim, with MusicRow’s Robert K. Oermann cheering, “…the backing track is ultra cool, with ear-catching percussive effects, electro voices and quirky guitars. His bopping vocal carries a song about a fellow falling hard. Groovy.”
Featured on Niemann’s current High Noon album, which also includes the recent RIAA Gold-certified #1 smash, “Drink to That All Night,” “Buzz Back Girl” is a song that Niemann thought was a “meant-to-be” choice from the first time he heard it.
Recalling that first listen, Niemann says, “The irony of it all is right when I hit ‘play,’ who’s the voice I hear singing? Lee Brice. So, I knew it was meant to be whenever my friends at the record label were pitching me my best friend’s songs. So, I actually started laughing, and I called Lee, and I said, ‘Man, this is a great song. Are you not gonna record this?’ And he said, ‘Man, the album that I’m making now, it honestly doesn’t fit,’ and he said, ‘I probably would record it in the future, but if you want it, it’s all yours.’ And so I was very excited to get this song and to get in the studio and try to put my own stamp on it.”
Niemann also recently talked about the new single for a feature on Billboard.com’s “The 615” column, online here: http://m.billboard.com/entry/view/id/93184.
