Chris Janson The Outlaw Side of Me

“Country Song of the Year” award in 2016 for his hit “Buy Me A Boat”

Performed in front of a rowdy live studio audience, bringing his infectious energy to fans who sang along to every word. His set list included crowd pleasers like his recently RIAA Platinum certified singles, “Drunk Girl,” “Good Vibes,” “Fix A Drink,” and the 4x Platinum mega-hit, “Buy Me A Boat;” as well as his newest tracks like “Outlaw Side of Me,” “Tap That,” and his fastest charting radio single to-date and lead song off the new album, “All I Need Is You.”

“I have always walked outside of the lines. Not on purpose, I was born this way,” Janson said, adding that “when you’re a real, true artist and a real, true songwriter, I believe you have to walk outside the lines… I just do things the way that I do it, and my fans, I think they appreciate it.”

Chris Janson, proud member of the Grand Ole Opry and multi-platinum songwriter and artist, is part of Country’s new breed. In touch with the lighter side of life with self-penned No. 1s “Fix A Drink,” “Good Vibes,” and the triple platinum “Buy Me A Boat,” as well as the more thoughtful truths of “Done,” “Things You Can’t Live Without,” and the CMA Song of the Year nominee and ACM Video of the Year “Drunk Girl.” Both “Boat” and “Girl” were named to the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s prestigious “Songs I Wish I Wish I’d Written” list, which is why artists like Tim McGraw (“Truck Yeah,” “How I’ll Always Be”), Justin Moore (“Off The Beaten Path”), Cody Johnson (“Let’s Build A Fire”), and the iconic Hank Williams Jr. (“God Fearin’ Man,” “Those Days Are Gone”) reach for Janson’s songs for their own projects. Beyond his artistry are his live shows, where all that heart-on-the-four-wheeler songwriting meets the fans where they come to rock. Rolling Stone proclaimed him “a live legacy in the making,” and Janson is a frequent presence at the nation’s biggest country festivals, tours, and unexpected sit-ins. For a man known for his outdoors lifestyle and collaborations with Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s, making music from his own life has established the harmonica-forward multi-instrumentalist the go-to guy for young country for the last decade. Janson is currently headlining his 2023 tour while his BMLG debut single, “All I Need Is You,” is his most-added radio hit to date.
