In the 1995 Western The Quick and the Dead, starring Sharon Stone, Russell Crowe, Gene Hackman and a very young Leonardo DiCaprio, every gunfight in the gunslinger’s tournament took place at 12—high noon.
Jerrod Niemann doesn’t seem to have any plans to take 10 paces and draw, but he is pulling the trigger on his third album, High Noon, March 25.
“High Noon is a term that’s been in my mind since I was a kid,” says Jerrod. "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, going 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 trying to do—in this case making music—I just think, ‘OK, 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.”
While Jerrod is busy popping those party poopers in the chaps with the first single from the album, “Drink to That All Night,” fans can take part in the album launch experience by going to journeytohighnoon.com , where they'll find free downloads, games and exclusive video.
