Song:Buy Me A Boat
Album:Buy Me A Boat
Chris Janson had success as a songwriter before scoring a top five country hit in 2015 with Buy Me A Boat. He was born Apr. 2, 1986 in Perryville, MO which is in Southeast Missouri. Janson moved to Nashville after graduating from high school. He recorded a couple of duets with Holly Williams on her 2009 album Here With Me. Then he signed with BNA Records and his debut single Til A Woman Comes Along charted. But when Sony folded BNA into Columbia Nashville in 2011, Janson left. He began to have success as a songwriter. He co-wrote the Tim McGraw hit Truck Yeah. Janson also played harmonica for Lee Brice. This led to a record deal with Keith Stegall's Bigger Picture Music Group. Janson released an EP and the single Better I Don't in 2013. But then Bigger Picture closed. Janson released the single Buy Me A Boat independently. When it started to get airplay in Nashville, Warner Bros. signed Janson and released Buy Me A Boat nationally. It reached #2 on the Country Singles chart. The album Buy Me A Boat was released Oct. 2015. Janson wrote the song with Chris DuBois who owns a publishing company with Brad Paisley. Paisley's other partner Brent Anderson produced the record. Janson also worked with Byron Gallimore on Buy Me A Boat. And Janson co-wrote all the songs on the album. Janson is currently touring to promote the album. It's likely he will record after the tour. Even if Janson doesn't make it as a recording artist, songwriting will keep him busy for a long time. Here's the video for Buy Me A Boat by Chris Janson.
