JANSON HANDPICKED TO PERFORM â€œCANâ€™T HELP FALLING IN LOVEâ€ FOR CONTESTANTS BOBBY BONES & SHARNA BURGESS
Platinum-selling, CMA-nominated artist Chris Janson will be lending his talents to prime-time national television, as he is scheduled to perform the Elvis Presley classic â€œCanâ€™t Help Falling In Loveâ€ on Mondayâ€™s episode of ABCâ€™s â€œDancing With The Stars.â€ Janson was handpicked by contestant Bobby Bones to perform during his and Sharna Burgessâ€™ round, and will help round out the showâ€™s â€œCountry Nightâ€ – an episode celebrating some of country musicâ€™s brightest stars and songs. The highly anticipated episode will air this coming on MONDAY, NOV. 5 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
For week seven, viewers may cast their votes for their favorite â€œDancing with the Starsâ€ couples via phone and online at www.ABC.com, beginning from the start of the episode on the East Coast at 8:00 p.m. EDT/5:00 p.m. PDT and closing at 4:00 a.m. EDT/1:00 a.m. PDT on Tuesday.
Bobby Bonesâ€™ selection of Chris Janson marks a continuation of what has become a significant relationship between the two. A supporter of Chris since the start of his career, Bobby was the first person to spin Jansonâ€™s independently released song â€œBuy Me A Boat,â€ sending the track to the top of the iTunes country charts, and propelling Chris into his record deal with Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville. Now, Chris is nearing 500,000 sales equivalents for the track â€œDrunk Girlâ€ – winner of MusicRowâ€™s Song of the Year award – and has been nominated for three Country Music Association awards.
Hosted by two-time Emmy-winning host Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, â€œDancing with the Starsâ€ is the hit series in which celebrities perform choreographed dance routines that are judged by a panel of renowned ballroom experts, including head judge, Len Goodman, and dancers/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
â€œDancing with the Starsâ€ is produced by BBC Studios. Andrew Llinares and Ashley Edens-Shaffer are executive producers. The show is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABCâ€™s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound.
