Country singer Jerrod Niemann, who I interviewed last week for a story to advance his March 9 show at Joyland in Bradenton, and everyone aboard his tour bus are safe after the vehicle burned in Chattanooga, Tenn., reports the Associated Press.
I just got off the phone with Niemann's Nashville-based publicist who confirmed he is fine and will perform Friday at Joyland in Bradenton.
"Thanks to everyone for all the bus comments & wishes," Niemann tweeted around 11:30 a.m. today. "Had friends, family (Dad & Uncle) & we thank God for letting us wake up today!"
