Three of country music’s biggest up-and-coming acts will share the stage for the University of Missouri–St. Louis Student Life Fall Concert. Jerrod Niemann and Thompson Square with special guest Sunny Sweeney will perform in concert beginning at 7 p.m. Nov. 2 in the Anheuser-Busch Performance Hall at the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center.

Niemann is best known for his groove-oriented, handclap-fueled Top 15 smash single “Lover, Lover” and his current release “One More Drinkin’ Song.” His latest album, “Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury,” featured up-tempo cuts, heartache balladry, wicked wordplay and a couple of covers all woven together with short comedic interludes.

Thompson Square’s infectious radio smash “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” and their current release “I Got You” are explorations of the dynamics of couplehood and romance. Thompson Square was recently nominated by the Country Music Association in the New Artist of the Year and Vocal Duo of the Year categories.

Sunny Sweeney is a brassy retro country singer whose recent album release “Concrete” includes country retro singles “From a Table Away” and “Staying’s Worse Than Leaving.”

Tickets are $5-$20. They are on sale now at the Touhill Performing Arts Center ticket office; online at or by phone at 314-516-4949.

The Touhill’s ticket office is on UMSL’s North Campus, 1 University Blvd. in St. Louis County (63121).

The annual Student Life Fall Concert is presented by the Office of Student Life at UMSL.
