    COUNTRY STAR CHRIS JANSON DONATES MERCH SALES TO WEST VIRGINIA FLOOD VICTIMS
    • 07.26.16

    NASHVILLE, TN –(July 25, 2016) – As a lifelong member of the working class, Chris Janson's songs and life reflect the way he lives. So Janson knows when neighbors are in need of help and that's just what he provided on Friday night.

    During Janson's performance at the Peck Fest in Point Pleasant, WV, he announced from stage that every dollar raised at the MERCH table would stay in West Virginia to help those affected by the devastating floods that hit the region less than a month ago. "It's the right thing to do," said Janson. "I've played many nights here in West Virginia and the people have always treated me and my family so nice. It's like a second home to me."

    On the heels of his smash hit single "Buy Me A Boat," Janson is enjoying another impactful song as "Holdin' Her" climbs the singles and sales chart. Of the song that Janson wrote about his wife and kids, Grand Ole Opry member Vince Gill said, "I'm going to make a bold prediction. That song will be the song of the year. That song is why we all love music."

    In addition to his current single “Holdin” Her,” look for more Janson penned songs on the charts soon as Tim McGraw just announced his next single “That’s How I’ll Always Be." Earlier this year, LoCash took the Janson penned “I Love This Life" into the Top 5.

    Janson recently made a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame in downtown Nashville to get a personal tour of the ACM Gallery exhibit which contains an entire case filled with Janson items. Each piece of memorabilia played a part in his rise to stardom including boots worn since his early days when he first arrived in Nashville and played shows at Tootsie’s, a Bocephus T shirt, his signature Fender harmonica and a guitar he paid $25 for and calls “the best investment I ever made.” It's a vintage Yamaha guitar signed by Merle Haggard that Janson wrote all of the songs for his debut album "Buy Me A Boat" on and every song he's had recorded by other artists.

    “Being part of this exhibit is a top three musical achievement of my career,” said Janson. “It’s right up there with playing on the Grand Ole Opry and having my songs played on country radio.”
