Country artist and prolific singer/songwriter Chris Janson began his professional music career more than a decade ago, but his recently released sophomore album Everybody has elevated him to the next level. Called “quite possibly the most important song to come out of Nashville in years” (CMT), Janson’s current single “Drunk Girl” is already drawing praise from fans and critics alike. The “heart-piercing ballad” (People) follows chart-topping singles “Fix A Drink” and his debut album’s Platinum-certified smash “Buy Me A Boat.” Lauded for his “infectious” (Billboard) performances, the electrifying multi-instrumentalist is hitting arenas across the nation this spring alongside label mate Cole Swindell on the Reasons To Drink Tour and will join Jake Owen for the Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour this summer. After receiving an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry from Keith Urban during his headlining show at the Ryman Auditorium, Janson is now the youngest living member of the hallowed organization. The breakout country star has brought his live show to national stages on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, TODAY, Live with Kelly & Ryan and more. chrisjanson.com Follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
