This morning here at WBKR, we are giving off some “Good Vibes!” Country music star Chris Janson is coming to town next year. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Grand Ole Opry member Chris Janson was set to play the Ryman on Wednesday, making a triumph return to one of Nashville’s most famous stages.
Keith Urban Invites Chris Janson To Join The Opry In a historic sold out show at Ryman Auditorium, Keith Urban invites Chris Janson to join country music’s greatest family at the Grand Ole Opry. After the invite, Janson joined the Opry backstage to share his excitement about his new family and membership.
The young artist is eager and ready to take those songs to fans across the country, and has spent the past year playing shows and building fans around his home state of Kentucky and across the Southeast. Watching him perform it’s easy to see shades of his idols, Luke Bryan,” in his rocking live show, and his dad” in the way he connects and emotes through a tender ballad. For Walker, connecting to each and every person and taking them along for the musical ride is the ultimate goal.
Chris Janson’s is one of the highest-energy performers in country music. He plays guitar, piano and harmonica during his set and is in constant motion on the stage. Fans will thoroughly enjoy Chris Janson’s concerts and can expect the duration of concerts to last from 60 to 90 minutes.

Show was ok. No opening act, which was fine. Show scheduled to start at 8 p.m. and started around 8:30 p.m. Not a bad thing. Took that long to get a drink. My biggest issue with the show was mainly all the talking. Chris Janson would play maybe two (2) songs and then go into some blah blah blah talking and that kind of killed the show for me. Definitely not the most entertaining concert I have seen. Probably would avoid seeing him again if given the opportunity and will just listen to his songs on the radio. Less commentary.
Chris Janson announced he will release this third studio album, Real Friends, on Oct. 18. His current single, “Good Vibes,” sits at Number Two and climbing on the Mediabase Country Singles chart.
Fittingly, Janson decided to honor that bond by titling the new project Real Friends. After all, friendship played a big part in the making of these new songs, too: “I made Real Friends with actual real friends. I produced the album with real friends, wrote all the songs with real friends, took all the photos for the project with my best friend and wife, Kelly,” he explains in a press release.
Everyone has heard the old adage about art imitating life, and in the case of Chris Janson , it’s pretty much true. Real Friends, his new project out Oct. 18, is an upbeat reflection of the happily married father of four and the values he holds dear.
The title track Everybody” includes a foot-stomping groove and a few more laughs inspired by society’s celebrity fixation, while Redneck Life” puts the hammer down for a wild-eyed cocktail of punk and country the singer describes as Social Distortion meets Waylon Jennings.” It offers the best glimpse yet into Janson’s harmonica wielding, 100-mph concerts.
On the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, it was ranked on 56th place on May 1, 2010. Tim Mc Graw ‘s single ‘Truck Yeah’ which was released in 2012 was also co-written by him.
But now, coming off the career-defining success of his Platinum certified get-rich smash Buy Me a Boat” and its Top 5 album of the same name, Janson’s turning his creativity loose. And with Everybody, he combines all the elements that make him unique, once and for all.
