The rise of ACM Awards® “New Male Artist of the Year” nominee and Warner Bros. /Warner Music Nashville recording artist Chris Janson has been one of the feel-good stories of country music in the past few years. A native of Perryville, Missouri, the singer--who once lived in his car in between performances on Nashville’s historic Broadway--has become one of the most respected singer-songwriters in the format today. His debut Warner Bros. single “Buy Me A Boat” hit the top of the Mediabase charts--and has since been certified platinum for sales of over one million copies, establishing the singer as a force to be reckoned with inside the format. The song--and album of the same title--achieved many 2015 “Best of” lists, including both the Billboard Top Country Singles and Albums lists. Janson;has scored on the same list again with his latest smash, the heartfelt Top 20 ballad “Holdin’ Her.”
The hit singer/songwriter has penned top-ten hits for Tim McGraw (“How I’ll Always Be,” “Truck Yeah”), and LOCASH (“I Love This Life”) and has had three of his compositions included on It’s About Time, the latest album from Hank Williams, Jr., for; which he also lends his signature harmonica licks.
The breakout star has also announced that he will join Sam Hunt on the road this summer for the “15 in a 30” tour, kicking off June 1 in Cleveland (full dates below), as well as Tim McGraw and Faith Hill for select dates on their “Soul2Soul” tour. A widely praised performer, Janson has continued to tour throughout the winter and recently sold out shows in Iowa, Mississippi and more.
