Chris Janson, Franklin resident, played his song “Buy Me A Boat” on the “Today” show making his TV network debut. We sat down with Janson last year at the CMA Fest when he was named as an up and coming artist to watch by the first edition of Rolling Stone Country. Janson told Hoda and Gifford, “When I wake up every day, it’s a good day. When I wake up in country music, it’s a great day.”
Janson is a regular at the Grand Ole Opry, crowd favorite and a must see in person. Janson will be performing at the upcoming CMT Awards after show party. Then on June 13th, he will appear at the Ryman for the Opry at the Ryman series. Janson is currently on tour with Toby Keith and also co-wrote the song, “Truck Yeah.” Below is his performance on the “Today” show.
