MusicRow declared that it’s a “blazing, high-octane performance that totally rocks” and that folks should “spin it until [they] get dizzy” – and that’s exactly what’s happening! Chris Janson’s summer anthem “Keys to the Country”earned 35 supporters at country radio as of its official impact this week. Janson recently performed the “rowdy tow-tapper” (CMT.com) on NBC’s 3rd Hour of TODAY (watch HERE). “Keys to the Country” is one of 16 tracks from his new album, All In (listen / purchase HERE).
Janson will share the new single and other album highlights, along with his collection of party-starting hits, when he headlines Ascend Amphitheater at CMA Fest on Friday, June 10. The acclaimed entertainer, whom Bobby Bones named among the “greatest performers in country music,” will hit major fairs and festivals throughout the summer before a co-headlining run this fall with “Things You Can’t Live Without” duet partner Travis Tritt (dates HERE).
When he is not on the road, avid outdoorsman Janson continues to dedicate his time to environmental efforts. Last week the Tennessee Wildlife Federation, a nonprofit dedicated to the conservation of the state’s wildlife and natural resources, honored him with the “Dan and Cherie Hammond Sharing the Harvest Award” for outstanding volunteer service. Janson’s partnership with Bass Pro Shops has allowed him to donate significant funds to the federation’s Hunters for the Hungry program. Read more about Hunters for the Hungry HERE.
Janson and Bass Pro Shops continually find new ways to team up and give back. They launched a massive, in-store “round-up at the register” campaign at the end of last year with the intention of funding at least 20 life-changing scholarships (a minimum of $100,000) for the spouses and children of fallen and disabled service members via national nonprofit organization Folds of Honor. The campaign ended up exceeded all expectations and came to an incredible grand total of $300,000 for the scholarship fund.
