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.

Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots
Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
