Jerrod Niemann, his friends, father and uncle are all safe after his tour bus caught fire late Tuesday.
After performing for Heart Strings for Hope, a benefit for St. Jude Children’s Hospital, in downtown Chattanooga, the group was about to leave town when the incident happened.
“We’re in there and Jon [Stone] comes over and says ‘Your bus is on fire.” Niemann recounts. “And I’m like ‘Dude, your gun’s shot. Our bus is not on fire.’ I thought it was the heater. So I went to the thermostat and it says “Auto Cool”. So Lee [Brice] get’s off the bus and is like “Dude, that’s black smoke. Your bus is on fire”
