I have no idea what this new Jerrod Niemann song is about, but the beat has me rocking back and forth.
Jerrod Niemann is certainly an interesting guy. I saw him in concert either last summer or the year before at Country Jam in Eau Claire. He put on a great show and the fans were really into it.
At that time his second major album release was just getting a little traction on the charts. I wasn’t sure if he would come back with another hit at that time, but he came back strong this year with Drink To That All Night. Now he’s back on top and he’s bringing out the donkey to take it back to the top again.
Donkey – Jerrod Niemann
Is this classic country music?
Will this get played on the radio like crazy?
I don’t know the answers to those questions. I really don’t know my own feelings on this song.
What I do know is that the song makes me want to get on some dance floor and line dance. Line dancing has long been a part of country music. That’s why I think songs like this are just fine on country radio. There are plenty of country fans out there wanting to get out and do some dancing on the weekends.
And you know they’re in their cars on the drive home doing a little drivers seat dancing.
I think this song will be a hit for Jerrod. It seems like fans have already been loving it for a long time in concert. That’s usually one good sign that a song could become a hit on radio.
What do you think?
Is this song too crazy to work at radio or will fans embrace the fun?
