Janson to Make Debut at the 93rd Annual Macy’s Day Parade
The Country Music Association has revealed that Platinum-selling artist and entertainer Chris Janson will take part in a not-to-be-missed performance of Kris Kristofferson’s “Me & Bobby McGee” at The 53rd Annual CMA Awards. The all-star collaboration withDierks Bentley, Sheryl Crow and the Brothers Osbourne’s John Osborne will bring together some of the industry’s most explosive performers to celebrate the Country Music Hall of Famer, who will receive the 2019 Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award. Country Music’s Biggest Night™ will broadcast live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 8/7c on the ABC Television Network.
“Kris Kristofferson is one of my favorite artists of all time,” says Janson. “I’m very humbled to be a part of an incredible tribute to a legend who has done so much for country music. I couldn’t imagine being part of anything cooler than this at the CMA awards.”
The multi-instrumentalist sparkplug, who continues to garner critical praise for his explosive live performances, just celebrated his third No. 1 song “Good Vibes” this past month. “Done,” the second single from his recently released album Real Friends, is set for a November 25 impact at country radio.
Janson’s dance card has been full. He will perform on the 93rd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, Nov. 28 and appear on the ABC network broadcast of CMA Country Christmas, which will air Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 9/8c. Last week RIAA Chairman and CEO Mitch Glazier presented him with the Excellence in Creativity Award at the 2019 Global IP Champions Gala at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
