Janson unveils song list

Wednesday, August 23, 2017 – Chris Janson unveiled the songs on his forthcoming "Everybody" CD.

Janson, who had a hand in writing all dozen songs, will release his second Warner disc on Sept. 22. The record features the five songs on this summer's "Fix A Drink - EP."

The release kicks off with "Who's Your Farmer." "This song was inspired by true events - literally," said Janson of the track he co-wrote with Buddy Owens and Mitch Oglesby. "Riding a tractor, putting in food plots, I love to hunt. That's where the song came from. I just thought it was kind of a fun, sexy, quirky title. I can absolutely picture myself winking at my wife, being stupid and saying, 'Who's your farmer?'"

The track listing is:
1. Who's Your Farmer (Chris Janson, Buddy Owens, Mitch Oglesby)
2. Everybody (Chris Janson, Tom Douglas, Casey Beathard) *
3. Name On It (Chris Janson, Ashley Gorley, Chris DuBois, Ross Copperman)
4. Eyes For Nobody (Chris Janson, Jeremy Stover)
5. Fix A Drink (Chris Janson, Chris DuBois, Ashley Gorley) **

When You Like Me (Chris Janson, Casey Beathard, Kelly Roland)

CD reviews for Chris Janson

Everybody 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 »»»
Fix a Drink EP CD review - Fix a Drink EP
The title track for Chris Janson's "Fix a Drink" mines much the same territory of his humorous 2015 single "Buy Me a Boat." It's a song about innocent escapism. Janson may not be the best man to resolve the world's many overwhelming problems, but he can make a killer alcoholic beverage. That's as far as he goes as a fixer. This five-song EP is a relatively light-hearted little project. "Everybody" speaks to the elevated expectations of most humans. »»»
Buy Me A Boat CD review - Buy Me A Boat
A fast rise to the charts is the oft elusive dream of many young musicians. After years of toiling in the trenches in Nashville, Chris Janson had faced his share of hardships and rejections. He'd worked with an impressive roster of artists (Tim McGraw, Justin Moore, Lee Brice), but failed to score any significant attention as an artist himself. Then he followed his wife's advice and self-released a single, "Buy Me a Boat," which became a surprise radio hit. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lane, Ramsey, Barrett cover their bases – Covers played a far more prominent role than usual at a country show. And instead of what is typically the least course of resistance in recent years of country artists succumbing to their renditions of a rock hit, Chris Lane, Mason Ramsey and Gabby Barrett played songs that actually were country hits. Interestingly, the youngest of the bunch, Ramsey,... »»»
Concert Review: Mumford and Sons up to snuff, for the most part – Mumford and Sons have always played it smart when it has come to career moves. They have not overtoured by becoming regular fixtures on the touring circuit. Their M.O. is to tour just enough upon an album release and then disappear for a stretch. Ditto for releasing new music ("Delta" just came out last month, Mumford's first release... »»»
