"God Made a Woman": Jerrod Niemann previews his favorite song he's ever recordedCurb RecordsJerrod Niemann returns with new music this Friday, and the “Lover, Lover” hitmaker says “God Made a Woman” is his favorite song he’s ever recorded.

“The one thing I realize now as a man no longer walking alone in this world of wonders -- God’s greatest gift is the love of a woman,” Jerrod says in a spoken-word introduction to the song, which he posted on social media on Monday.

“God Made a Woman” is Jerrod’s first solo single for Curb Records, following his top-30 hit with his buddy Lee Brice, “A Little More Love.” Jerrod’s last monster hit was his #1 from 2013, “Drink to That All Night.”

“Somebody baby, you’ll accomp’ny me… and that day is today!” the Michigan native shared on social media, along with a photo of the newlyweds in their wedding attire. “@oldsmokeysboots has become my wife.”

Christina, who runs a vintage boot company, wore a traditional white gown, while Frankie rocked a tuxedo with a red pocket square.

“My dream just came true,” the new Mrs. Ballard added on her own Instagram. “@FrankieBallard MY HUSBAND!!!!!”

The ceremony took place Sunday at Star Hill Ranch in Bee Cave, Texas, according to People. While Frankie and Christina never publicly announced their engagement, you’ve likely caught a glimpse of the new bride before. She starred in Frankie’s 2013 music video for his #1 hit, “Helluva Life.”
