Electrifying Warner Bros. Records singer/songwriter Chris Janson made headlines when “his song “Buy Me A Boat" quickly landed at #1 on the iTunes Country chart and #7 on the all genre chart. In addition, “Chris Janson" trended in the Top 10 as superstars Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Nashville's Charles “Chip" Esten where abuzz on Twitter about the catchy tune. A formidable songwriter in his own right, Janson co-wrote the song with Chris Dubois, who has penned many #1 songs. With undeniable charisma, Janson brings a blue-collar, working-class, boot-stomping hillbilly swagger to bear on every live performance, earning him opening slots for Florida Georgia Line, music legends Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. The Perryville, Missouri native first broke onto the music scene when he landed a year long, four-show-a-day gig at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Nashville's Lower Broadway.
The talented songwriter and self-taught musician is currently focused on writing and recording songs for his forthcoming debut album for Warner Bros. which will include the hit “Buy Me A Boat.

The video for his new single will be produced by CMT, marking the first time the network has financed a music video for an artist.
He began writing at just 18 with an impressive group of artists from the likes of Guns N' Roses to the esteemed Larry Gatlin. Janson achieved an impressive 10 cuts in only 2 months with major recording artists including Randy Houser, Justin Moore, Joe Nichols, Frankie Ballard, and Tim McGraw's highest chart debut of his career, “Truck Yeah." “I write about what I know my family, my truck, & the way I live," said Janson.
