It was less than a year ago that singer-songwriter Chris Janson burst onto the scene with his now Platinum certified, #1 smash single, “Buy Me A Boat.” Today, Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville artist Janson receives three ACM nominations, two in the category of Single Record of the Year as both artist and producer of “Buy Me A Boat,” and a nod in the category of New Male Vocalist of the Year. These are his first ever ACM nominations.
“I woke up to the sweet sound of screaming kids and ACM nominations,” said Janson. “Its caught me completely of guard and I’m shocked, thankful and thrilled! Woohoo!! I’m so grateful to the country music community and the many fans for giving me these amazing opportunities. Thank you all!”
With his new single “Power of Positive Drinkin’” climbing the charts, the “2016 Next Big Thing” (MusicRow Magazine) readies to perform next week at the prestigious New Faces Show during Country Radio Seminar, held Feb. 8-10 in Nashville. Alumni of the New Faces Show include artists like Taylor Swift, Eric Church, The Dixie Chicks, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan and many others.
Later this month, Janson will join labelmate Blake Shelton on the road starting 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.
