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 | For The Country Record | Page 2

Chris Janson’s ‘Buy Me A Boat’ Debuts At #4 On Top Country Albums

chris janson

On the strength of his recent No. 1 single “Buy Me A Boat,” Chris Janson lands at No. 4 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart this week with his new album, the third highest selling debut album from a country artist this year. After a whirlwind week including a satellite radio tour, his 117th Opry performance, and the official “Boat” music video also taking the top spot on the CMT Hot 20 Countdown, Janson capped it all off with a performance of the single yesterday evening on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Chris Janson ‘Buy Me A Boat’ – Album Review

chris-janson-buy-me-a-boat-album-cover-300x300

I, like most people, first heard of Chris Janson after Bobby Bones backed his song ‘Buy Me A Boat’ which ended up being one of the biggest hits of the year, and one of the most successful independently released singles ever. Taking advantage of the huge publicity he received from this, he subsequently signed to Warner Music Nashville, and found his way onto big tours with artists like Toby Keith and Luke Bryan. Having bought his EP and seen him perform live, I was nervous about what his debut major-label LP would be like, praying that he wouldn’t sacrifice his personal style of songwriting and electric live performance, channelling a bit of Jerry-Lee Lewis in his amazing harmonica jams. What I found in the album was good. It isn’t as raw as his EP, but nor is it obviously tainted by pigeon-holing by the label, and so for a debut effort, I would say it was a thoroughly satisfying record.

Chris Janson ‘Power of Positive Drinkin’’ – Single Review

chris-janson-power-of-positive-drinkin

Chris Janson is a sober man. It’s good to consider that within the context of “we write about what we know” narratives, as usually they are the excuse for almost exclusively releasing drinking and party anthems to radio. And perhaps Chris Janson has many a story about getting very drunk because his life wasn’t going the way he hoped, numbing the pain through alcohol, but any narrative concerning that would surely be negatively tinted through the hindsight of having chosen to abstain. Right?

Breakout ‘Buy Me A Boat’ Singer Spends Time In Studio During Short Break In Nashville

Chris Janson has finally found time to record his Warner Bros. Records debut album in a summer so busy, he’s hardly been home.

Thanks to the widespread popularity of Top 10 single “Buy Me a Boat,” Janson has been a wanted man all summer.  He’s been on the road with Toby Keith, hitting the Grand Ole Opry a couple times a month, made his major television debut on NBC’s “Today” and has been kayaking on the Harpeth River with his family in the boats bought by “Boat.”
