Janson is Platinum-selling, high-octane entertainer. He is a multi-instrumentalist, award-winning singer/songwriter, and the youngest living member of the Grand Ole Opry.

His sophomore album, Everybody, produced his second No. 1 hit single, “Fix A Drink,” the chart-topping follow up to his No. 1 debut smash and summer anthem, “Buy Me A Boat.” His current single, “Drunk Girl,” is climbing the country airplay charts while being hailed by the Tennessean as “a shoo-in for a Song of the Year nomination.”

Janson closed out the 53rd ACM Awards with what Rolling Stone called a “must-see performance,” and he floored his audience at Stagecoach. Janson is currently on the “Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour” with Jake Owen, as well as doing his own headlining dates, which included a sold-out show at the historic Ryman Auditorium.
