Jerrod Niemann has been asked to play a gig he set his sights on long ago. 

Jerrod Niemann announced that he has been asked to headline a show at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in September.

Jerrod said, "To say I am excited to headline at the Ryman is an understatement. I remember when I first moved to town, my buddies and I would hang out in the honky tonks off Lower Broadway and the Mother Church of Country Music would always smile down at us from her perch. It's a rite of passage for all musicians to grace her stage as the main act and I am very much looking forward to that honor."

Jerrod will play the Ryman on Friday, September 12. Meanwhile, you can catch Jerrod playing at Winstock 2014 this weekend.
