Janson pays unusual gig - high school graduation

Monday, May 22, 2023 – Chris Janson's gig on Sunday was did an unusual gig – a high school graduation.

That was because the Big Machine Label Group artist was with his BMGL's Executive Vice President of Creative, Sandi Spika Borchetta, who gave the keynote address for Delta High School's graduation commencement ceremony yesterday in Delta, Col. The Delta High School alumna returned to her alma mater. Borchetta asked him to come, and Janson, took the stage to perform a number of his PLATINUM-selling hits, as well as new tracks "GOAT" and "21 Forever," from his forthcoming album, "Outlaw Side of Me," due June 16.

Borchetta graduated from Delta High School. Janson played for the 126 graduates and guests from the middle of the football stadium and welcomed the graduates to join him on stage for fan favorite "Buy Me A Boat." The artist then gifted each graduate a complementary BassProShops hat to throw up in celebration of their milestone, courtesy of the country artist's conservational partnership with the organization. Since Janson partnered with the organization, sales of the same cap have raised more than 1 million dollars towards his conversation efforts.

"Even though I've been a Nashville resident for a while, I hold this small community close to my heart," said Borchetta. "I'm honored to provide a celebration to remember for these amazing graduates. Hard work and persistence pay off, never give up. Small towns produce great minds that are capable of big things. If you're going to do something, be the best...be the GOAT. Chris Janson song "GOAT" inspires greatness. He was the perfect artist to partner with for this event."

"The more time you spend with the next generation the better off the world will be," said Janson. "Congratulations to the class of 2023, good vibes."

CD reviews for Chris Janson

CD review - All In Chris Janson, who has made it well known how he's skilled at fixing drinks, expectedly comes to party much of the time on "All In." For instance, he revs up the party bus to top speed during "Halfway to Crazy." However, this 16-song album contains far more than mere bar beverage discussion. Janson has plenty on his mind, and it's all included herein. The most unusual song is "You, Me & The River," which also features its writer, Eric Church, singing along with Janson. ...
CD review - Real Friends "Real Friends" is a showcase for the rubberband quality of Chris Janson's voice. He's got a Mel Tillis stammer in "Check" and a Florida Georgia Line yowl in "Normal People." Kenny Chesney should get a royalty check on "Everybody's Going Through Something." But what's noticeably different about Janson is touch. His songs deftly sprinkle on a dash of horns, rock or hip-hop. But it's all county-infused flavors added by a chef in control. ...
CD review - Everybody Chris Janson's full-length release, "Everybody," includes the same party songs that first appeared on his "Fix A Drink" EP. And while the full length adds more evidence for his image as a good time party starter, it also reveals his softer side, presenting a more well-rounded performer. "Bein' A Dad" is a quiet, sentimental song about parenthood. When Janson sings, "God, I love bein' a dad," he sounds just like Eric Church, a performer ...
