Acclaimed singer / songwriter, recording artist and entertainer Chris Janson is espousing “Cold Beer Truth” in the latest track from his upcoming album, All In. Together with co-writers Brad Clawson, Mitch Oglesby and Rob Pennington, Janson crafts a set of true-to-life, down-to-earth adages – “All the best songs have a fiddle and steel / you can still count on a handshake deal / it ain’t what you say, it’s what you do / yeah, that’s the Cold Beer Truth.” Listen to “Cold Beer Truth” HERE and watch the official music video, directed by David Bradley, HERE.
The special music video brings together many of Janson’s closest friends and family, from his own kids – and new puppy – to Kid Rock. Guests include former University of Alabama football player and entrepreneur John Cassimus and famed fisherman Bill Dance. NASCAR’s Richard Childress appears as a special tribute to Dale Earnhardt, highlighted with reverence in the song’s lyrics. Earnhardt was a longtime friend of Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris, also featured in the video. Janson and Morris are frequent collaborators. Most recently they teamed up to donate $300,000+ to the spouses and children of fallen and disabled service members via national nonprofit organization Folds of Honor.
“The ‘Cold Beer Truth’ video includes some of my best friends, heroes and mentors,” Janson said. “It was important to me to highlight those relationships. When I think cold beer truth conversations, I think fishing and being in the outdoors with family and friends. When I think of NASCAR, I think Dale Earnhardt. This video pays tribute to all the good buddies out there in America who have made some great memories while sharing some cold beer truth.”
“Cold Beer Truth” is the third song from All In, following the recent release of the album’s title track. Described as “Janson at his up-tempo love song singalong best” (CMT), “All In” is available now (listen HERE). Meanwhile, the project’s flagship single, “Bye Mom” (listen HERE), continues to connect with fans as “masterfully written story song” (Taste of Country) about loving someone more than yourself. MusicRow has praised “Bye Mom” as “achingly lovely” and described it as “tapping into a universal truth.”
Janson, whom Bobby Bones named among the “greatest performers in country music,” will share new music from All In as well as his collection of chart-topping hits starting tonight on his headlining “Halfway to Crazy” Tour, spanning 18+ dates in auditoriums, theaters and, for the first time, arenas across the nation. Tickets for the run are on sale now (click HERE). Accompanying him on the road are hit-making singer / songwriter Ray Fulcher and up-and-comer Shane Profitt.
Over the past six years as a Warner Music Nashville recording artist, Janson has spread “Good Vibes” while collecting five massive hits, seven billion airplay impressions, more than 1.5 billion on-demand career streams and several major industry awards.
