Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville country artist Chris Janson was born to entertain crowds. In 2015, his breakthrough #1 Platinum single “Buy Me A Boat” was the 7th bestselling country song of the year, although his professional music career began more than 10 years ago.
The “Fix A Drink” singer is known as much for his hit songwriting as his “infectious” (Billboard) performances, with Rolling Stone describing him as having “a mesmerizing stage presence that most arena-headlining artists would kill for.” Janson has also penned multiple top-charting hits including “Truck Yeah” (Tim McGraw), “That’s How I’ll Always Be” (Tim McGraw), “I Love This Life” (LoCash), and over 25 additional hit songs recorded by a long list of established artists. The breakout star has been nominated for multiple awards and won several, including two 2016 BMI songwriter awards (“Buy Me A Boat” and “I Love This Life”) as well as Country Song of the Year (“Buy Me a Boat”) at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
The electrifying performer is on the road this summer with Sam Hunt for the “15 in a 30” tour as well as his own headlining dates and will join Tim McGraw and Faith Hill for select shows on their SOUL2SOUL tour in the fall. He plays every instrument on stage, and is best known for his signature harmonica playing. Additionally, Janson has played the Grand Ole Opry more than 150 times to date, and made numerous television appearances including: The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, CONAN, The Today Show, ACM Awards and ACCA Awards. He recently released his Fix A Drink EP and is currently working on new music, with an album due later this year.
