Country icons Jerrod Niemann and Lee Brice were pitted against each other on the hit game show, "Celebrity Family Feud."
Both artists went head-to-head vying for $25,000 to donate to the charity of their choice. Brice was playing for Folds of Honor and Niemann for the USO. Hosted by Steve Harvey, their episode was aired in August 2017.
In an interview with Sounds Like Nashville, Niemann said: “You can expect some chaos because [Brice], and myself have caused a lot of chaos and knowing my family, [Brice’s] family and Steve Harvey, it’s the perfect mixture of madness.”
“There’s a lot of little one-liners and dousies in there. Our favorite thing, other than getting to spend time with friends and family and have that crazy memory, is that we get to raise money for USO and Folds of Honor.”

In 2016, Niemann took part in his first USO Tour. According to him, the experience was life-changing. He was able to perform for U.S troops, including Kosovo, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Romania.
The “God Made a Woman” singer hoped to come back every year because he wanted to bring music to the soldiers throughout his career. He also wanted to look back on his time on "Celebrity Family Feud" nostalgically.
“It was so much fun. Hopefully, we can do something like it again,” Niemann said. “I’ve had a lot of fun raising money for some good causes, but that may take the cake.”
In March 2012, Niemann's tour bus caught fire. Luckily, he was uninjured. He credited Brice for alerting him to the dangerous flame.
Niemann told People, “I smelled something when I got on the bus, but I figured it was that smell a heater makes when it comes on.”
“Jon Stone, a songwriter who was with us because he wrote Lee Brice’s new song, said, ‘Dude, I think your bus is on fire.’”
He added, "I said, ‘No, that’s the heater.’ But he had been on [Brice’s] bus when it caught on fire just recently, so he was pretty adamant. He and [Brice] went outside and [Brice] came back on and said, ‘No dude, this bus is on fire! You need to get your stuff and get off now!’”
The bus indeed was on fire. Niemann said he's thrilled to be alive.
