Following an exclusive premiere on SiruisXM’s The Highway, the catchy song debuted in the Top 100 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and is poised for a solid radio debut.
Co-written by Janson, Kelly Roland and Tiffany Goss, the playful song captures the give-and-take that is a part of relationships. With clever lyrics and a cheerful melody, it’s no wonder that radio is buzzing about song.
EARLY RAVES: "Chris Janson has grit, writing and a great stage presence. He is poised to kick some a@*!" – John Marks/SiriusXM
"Love it. Great song. His voice sounds mainstream and right where the formant is." – Clay Hunnicutt, EVP of Programming/Clear Channel
"’Cut Me Some Slack’ should be called ‘Make Me Some Room’ because this song should be part of everyone’s playlist. Chris Janson is fun to be around and his music reminds you to just have fun. Works fer me man!" – Stoney Richards/WDSY Pittsburgh
"Great rockin’ country tune in the Justin Moore, Randy Houser, Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert vein. This song will be a good move for Janson. It has today’s country sound. This could be the song that breaks him, or at the very least, get far enough to make people pay attention." – Phathead/WJVC Long Island
"Tempo. Killer Hook. Fun." – Tom Hanrahan/WDXB Birmingham
"Love the hook, love the vocals, super radio friendly" – Nick Cash/KHGE Fresno

“Cut Me Some Slack” is the follow-up to the Top 40 hit “Better I Don’t.” Both songs are featured on the dynamic multi-instrumentalist’s self-titled EP produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and is now available at all digital retailers.
Since releasing “Better I Don’t,” Janson has been gaining attention nationwide from media and fans alike. Most recently, he garnered great ink in Nashville Lifestyle’s “The Hot List” issue and Billboard’s “The Next Wave in Country Rock” feature. With undeniable charisma, he brings a blue-collar, working-class, boot-stomping hillbilly redneck attitude to bear on every live performance, earning him opening slots for music legends Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. as well as regular appearances on the Grand Ole Opry. The talented songwriter has already scored cuts with artists such as Tim McGraw (“Truck Yeah”) and Justin Moore (“Off The Beaten Path”).
The Perryville, Missouri, native first broke onto the Nashville music scene when he landed a year long, four show a day gig at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Nashville’s Lower Broadway.
