Country music newcomer Chris Janson releases his debut self-titled EP to all digital retailers yesterday (9/3) via Bigger Picture Group. Produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band), the five-song project features the dynamic multi-instrumentalist’s brand new single “Cut Me Some Slack” and Top 40 hit “Better I Don’t.”
“I’m thrilled to get new music to the country fans,” says Chris Janson. “All of the songs on the EP are autobiographical and these are such fun stories for me to share!”
“Cut Me Some Slack” exclusively premiered on SiruisXM’s The Highway and debuted in the Top 100 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The catchy song will hit Country radio stations nationwide next week.
The talented songwriter, who has already scored cuts with artists such as Tim McGraw (“Truck Yeah”) and Justin Moore (“Off The Beaten Path”), wrote or co-wrote all of the songs featured on the EP.
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.
He began writing at just 18 with an impressive group of musicians from the likes of Guns N’ Roses to Bill Anderson. 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.
Currently, Janson is on the road visiting radio and playing shows across the country in support of the new EP with upcoming dates in Portland, OR (9/8), Tallahassee, FL (9/13) and Presto, PA (9/14).
