MULTI-PLATINUM hitmaker Jerrod Niemann is doubling down on holiday cheer with the release of two new songs that he solely wrote and produced – “White Christmas in the Sand” and “There’s No Need for Mistletoe” – available across all streaming platforms and digital retailers today.

Debuting on American Songwriter, “White Christmas in the Sand” finds laidback inspiration in a breezy, beachside holiday. Serving up a warm, lighthearted twist on traditional Christmas music, the reggae-infused tune is sure to put a tropical getaway at the top of everyone’s wishlist.
In wistful contrast, “There’s No Need for Mistletoe” channels heartbreak with a traditional Country sound and lyrics that reflect on a former flame during what should be the “most wonderful time of the year.”
Sharing the story behind both songs, Niemann details how a group of country legends are the reason he was inspired to make Christmas music.

“Years ago, I had a friend that was playing the fiddle and steel guitar for the Oak Ridge Boys,” Niemann explains to American Songwriter. “He mentioned they were working on a Christmas album and wanted to know if I had any songs. Over the next few days, I wrote both ‘White Christmas in the Sand’ and ‘There’s No Need for Mistletoe’ and sent them off for them to check out. I have no idea if they ever actually heard them, but I’m so glad those great guys helped give me a reason to dive into writing my own holiday music.”





After nearly a decade as a major label artist, prolific hitmaker Jerrod Niemann is embarking on a journey of his own with his upcoming LOST & FOUND project. For the first time in two years, Niemann is releasing brand-new music – with his latest pair of tunes, “White Christmas in the Sand” and “There’s No Need for Mistletoe,” each shining a light on the upcoming holiday season. Continuing to pave his own path, the Country hitmaker kicked off this new chapter with four standout tracks from his LOST & FOUND project – “Tequila Kisses,” “Ghost Rider,” “The Blame” and “It Won’t Be Me” – all following his patriotic anthem, “Old Glory” (2018), and full length album, THIS RIDE (2017), featuring the feel-good track “I Got This,” uplifting duet “A Little More Love” (with Lee Brice), and the classy romance of “God Made a Woman.” Throughout his career, Niemann has racked up multiple accolades, from his PLATINUM #1 smash “Lover, Lover” and GOLD-certified Top 5 “What Do You Want” off his critically acclaimed major label debut, JUDGE JERROD & THE HUNG JURY, to his PLATINUM anthem “Drink to That All Night” – a multi-week #1 from the 2014 album HIGH NOON. With ACM, CMA, and CMT Award nominations under his belt and headlining and touring stints with some of Country’s hottest acts – Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban – Niemann continues to make his mark by creatively pushing boundaries, while still offering a sincere nod to the legends before him.
