Electric Performer Touring All Summer With Major Festival Stops

NASHVILLE, TN (August 21, 2014) – Country music entertainer Chris Janson will join the legendary Merle Haggard next week, for two sold-out shows at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. Recently named by Rolling Stone Country as one of the “Top 10 Artist You Need To Know,” Janson will light up the stage as the opening act for Haggard during both shows on Monday (8/25) and Tuesday (8/26).

"It's an incredible honor to play on this show and I'm humbled. It's hard to even find words to describe...this is a career milestone for me and I'm beyond grateful," shares Janson. "It's just a few shorts steps from the back door of Tootsie's where I had my first gig and a lot of hard work later to make it to the Ryman with Merle. A dream come true!"
