GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110, USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. Chris Janson’s #1 Smash ‘Buy Me A Boat’ Certified Platinum | For The Country Record

Chris Janson’s #1 Smash ‘Buy Me A Boat’ Certified Platinum

Chris-Janson-Buy-Me-a-Boat

Janson’s Debut Disc Named A Rolling Stone Best Country Album Of The Year as Second Single ‘Power of Positive Drinkin’” Continues Chart Climb

Chris Janson thought all the surprises in his life-changing 2015 had already been unwrapped, but as Christmas approaches he got one more present: a Platinum “Boat.”

The Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville recording artist’s breakthrough single “Buy Me A Boat” has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, with more than one million track equivalent units and counting for the escapist song of the summer.

“This has been an incredible year for me and my family, and we are so grateful,” said Janson, who wrote all 11 songs on his debut album. “It’s been surreal with ‘Buy Me A Boat’ going to No. 1 and getting to perform the song on stage every night. Words cannot express the gratitude that I feel. We’re so thankful for God’s blessings, country radio, fans, friends and family, and my amazing team.”

“Buy Me a Boat,” the first single from Janson’s debut album of the same name, transformed Janson’s life after a decade of hard work and has made him one of 2015’s most visible new stars. He was recently chosen as a 2016 Next Big Thing by MusicRow and selected to perform as part of the prestigious New Faces concert during Country Radio Seminar, held Feb. 8-10 in Nashville, TN. His album made Rolling Stone Country’s list of 2015’s best and he just released the lyric video for the second single “Power of Positive Drinkin’” from Buy Me A Boat.

With so much to be thankful for Janson is making sure he gives back this holiday season, helping raise money for several children’s charities. The Missouri native played a pair of back-to-back St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital benefits, headlining WDXB Birmingham’s A Bull Country Christmas to benefit the Alabama branch on Dec. 6 and playing a dual role during Dec. 7’s WSIX-Nashville fundraiser. Janson joined the celebrity house band as the drummer, backing stars like Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley and others. He also brought the crowd to its feet during “Buy Me A Boat.” He played the Grand Ole Opry at Ryman Auditorium on Dec. 8 before headlining WWQM-Madison, Wisconsin’s Toys For Tots holiday show on Dec. 9.

“My life revolves around my kids, and that’s what makes my wife and me the most happy,” Janson said. “Christmas is a special time for us – not only on our home front, but for the work that we are fortunate enough to do with organizations like St. Jude and The Salvation Army. We should always lift up kids and take the highest care possible. It warms my heart to be a small part of anything to do with helping make their lives better.”

Janson joins labelmate Blake Shelton on the road Feb. 18 in Cincinnati, Ohio for the kick-off of Shelton’s 2016 Tour Presented By Gildan. For tickets and more information about the rising country star, visit www.ChrisJanson.com and follow @janson_chris on Twitter.
