In between a busy summer touring schedule, Chris Janson has been in the studio with producers Byron Gallimore, Chris DuBois, and Brent Anderson working on his debut album for Warner Bros. Nashville. It is on track for release this fall.

The project will feature Janson’s hot debut single for the label, “Buy Me A Boat,” which shot into the Top 10 after 13 weeks on the charts and is nearing gold certification with over 475,000 downloads. “Buy Me A Boat” has also been streamed more than six million times on Spotify, and the video has been viewed more than 3.2 million times on YouTube.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am to have this music coming out,” Janson said. “I’ve been writing nonstop for 10 years, so material was not a problem. My A&R rep said we have two albums of material. I have songs about boats, love, kids, back in my drinkin’ days and Jesus. It will definitely be a piece of Chris Janson.”

Janson has been opening for Toby Keith’s Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour and playing fairs and festivals around the country this summer.
