    About Chris Janson:
    Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville country artist Chris Janson was born to entertain crowds. Janson’s recent single “Fix A Drink,” from his anticipated sophomore album Everybody, just reached No. 1 on the country radio chart and his follow-up single is the highly-acclaimed song “Drunk Girl.” In 2015, Janson’s breakthrough No. 1 Platinum single “Buy Me A Boat” was the 7th bestselling country song of the year, although his professional music career began more than 10 years ago. The singer/songwriter has also penned multiple top-charting hits including “Truck Yeah” (Tim McGraw), “That's How I'll Always Be” (Tim McGraw), “I Love This Life” (LoCash), and over 25 additional hit songs recorded by a long list of established artists. The electrifying multi-instrumentalist is known as much for his hit songwriting as his “infectious” (Billboard) performances, with Rolling Stone describing him as having “a mesmerizing stage presence that most arena-headlining artists would kill for.” Janson spent last summer on the road with Sam Hunt for the 15 in a 30 Tour and recently kicked off The EVERYBODY Tour with his own headlining and festival dates. He has become a Grand Ole Opry regular, taking the legendary stage more than 150 times to date, and made numerous television appearances including: The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, CONAN, The Today Show, Live with Kelly & Ryan, the ACM Awards and the ACCA Awards.

This year, Lauren followed up her No. 1 debuting first album, Wildflower, with the release of the eagerly-awaited Road Less Traveled. Selected as one of Rolling Stone’s Most Anticipated Albums of 2017 and praised as “full of life lessons and uplift” (PEOPLE), the collection of 12 songs all written by the young star includes Lauren’s first No. 1 hit, title track “Road Less Traveled” and her current single, “Doin’ Fine.”
