Janson signs another deal

Thursday, April 23, 2015 – Chris Janson announced Thursday he has signed a record deal with Warner.

Janson, who had stints on two other labels, is riding the wave of his current single "Buy Me a Boat," which is in the Billboard top 40.

"So excited to say I signed a record Deal With Warner ya'll," Janson posted on his Facebook page.

The Missouri native signed with BNA Records in 2009 and released his debut single in 2010. Following a label overhaul, Janson was gone. He then signed with Bigger Picture Music, which also had Craig Campbell on the label, and released a self-titled EP in 2013. The label folded, leaving Janson a free agent.

Janson also has had success as a songwriter. He co-wrote Tim McGraw's 2012 single "Truck Yeah" and had songs released by Justin Moore, Randy Houser, Joe Nichols, Frankie Ballard, Tyler Farr, Jerrod Niemann and Campbell.

Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
