    BREAKOUT STAR CHRIS JANSON NOMINATED FOR ACM NEW MALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR AWARD
    • 02.17.17

    NASHVILLE, TN – (February 16, 2017) – Already noted as one of Nashville’s most “prolific” songwriters by Rolling Stone and “infectious” live performers by Billboard, Chris Janson continues to prove his value as a breakout recording artist with his second consecutive nomination for ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year. This year’s nomination follows his previous nods for New Male Vocalist of the Year and Single Record of the Year for his No. 1 Platinum-certified smash hit “Buy Me A Boat.”

    "I couldn't be more thrilled,” Janson said. “I love my life, love my job and love being recognized. I am so grateful. Unexpected blessings are the best."

    Janson has more to celebrate as he currently touts a single nearing Top 20 on country radio with “Holdin’ Her.” Earning praise from Billboard, CMT and more, the heartwarming song was described by The Boston Globe as “dripping in pedal steel and smoky organ… a heartfelt paean to true love, and the restorative and transformative powers it can hold.” He debuted the single on national television with his performance of the song last month on TODAY, launching it into the Top 10 Hot Country Songs on iTunes.

    The rising star also recently announced that he will join Sam Hunt on the road this summer for the “15 in a 30” tour, kicking off June 1 in Cleveland (full dates below), as well as Tim McGraw and Faith Hill for select dates on their “Soul2Soul” tour. Janson, whose live performances have been hailed as “thrilling” and “energetic” by Rolling Stone, wrapped 2016 with his headlining "Buy Me a Boat” tour after hitting the stage with Blake Shelton & Luke Bryan earlier in the year.
