Country music star Chris Janson is a “live legacy in the making” (Rolling Stone). The platinum-selling recording artist of hits like “Buy Me A Boat” and “Fix a Drink” is bringing his Real Friends Tour to The Paramount on Friday, March 20, and tickets are on sale now!
In the four years since the release of his debut album, the three-time CMA nominee has collected prestigious accolades that place him amongst country music greats, including two No. 1 singles. Janson’s new album Real Friends dropped in October, and his Real Friends Tour kicked off the month before that. His newest single, “Done,” was the most-added single on Country Radio with 48 first-week adds. Not only has Janson been busy touring and climbing the charts, but he’s also been making headlines as of late, and we’ve complied them for you here.
On November 26, Janson was one of Dolly Parton’s musical guests on Dolly Parton: 50 Years at the Opry. The two-hour special chronicles Parton’s 50 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and Janson helped celebrate her musical legacy with a performance of “Mule Skinner Blues.”
If you watched the 93rd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, you may have seen Janson perform his hit song “Good Vibes” on a float with the Jolly Green Giant. On Instagram, the singer wished his fans a day full of turkey and “good vibes.”
Country music fans enjoyed a special treat from Janson on December 3. Following Brad Paisley’s hilarious 1-hour television special, Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special, the Country Music Association’s (CMA) 10th Annual Country Christmas brought some of country’s biggest stars to the stage to perform holiday classics. The star-studded lineup included Janson, who gave an energetic performance of “Run, Run Rudolph” that included impressive harmonica solos throughout the song.
On December 5, Janson performed at the inaugural Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Awards in Nashville. He once again broke out that epic harmonica, and we hope he’ll do it again when he performs live at The Paramount this spring!
