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: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
