On Jan. 29, ole announced it has concluded an exclusive deal with singer/songwriter Chris Janson. The deal includes the purchase of Janson’s publishing share of his existing catalogue (including his most recent album, Everybody), and extends ole’s existing publishing agreement with Janson for future albums.
“I’m proud to extend my partnership with ole. I am proud to be a songwriter, and thankful for the success it has brought my family and I,” commented Janson. “I’m passionate about songwriting and look forward to the future with the ole team.”
John Ozier, ole’s Vice President, Creative, added, “We’re incredibly proud to have extended our deal with Chris Janson. Not only is Chris an amazing artist and performer, Chris is a prolific songwriter. We look forward to building on the success and momentum that we have and cannot wait to see what this year brings for Chris and ole.”
Janson’s most recent album, Everybody, was released in September 2017, led by the single, “Fix A Drink.” The second single, “Drunk Girl,” published by ole and co-written by Janson, Tom Douglas and Scooter Carusoe, is currently climbing its way up the airplay charts. Earning widespread praise from critics, “Drunk Girl” was named one of Rolling Stone’s “25 Best Country Songs of 2017”.
Janson previously hit No. 1 with “Buy Me A Boat” in late 2015. In addition to his self-recorded tracks, Janson has also written more than 25 songs for a long list of country stars, including Tim McGraw (“Truck Yeah” & “How I’ll Always Be”), Locash (“I Love This Life”), and Randy Houser (“Song Number 7”).
