NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (October 10, 2019) – With just one week left until the launch of his album Real Friends, Chris Janson is ready to take his “Good Vibes” to television’s most positive stage. The humble-minded entertainer with an “endlessly sunny disposition” (Billboard) will perform the Top 5 and climbing single Oct. 25 on Ellen. Janson co-wrote and co-produced all 13 tracks from the upcoming project, which is due Oct. 18 and available now for pre-order (click HERE).

Last week Janson announced that he’d be taking the album launch celebration to NBC’s TODAY on Oct. 22 during both the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. hours. “Good Vibes,” described as an “infectious melody” (Taste of Country), is nearing 50 million on-demand streams as it approaches the top of the radio charts. In addition to the single, fans who pre-order the record will also have instant access to download “Done,” “Waitin’ on Five” and “Say About Me.”

 Off-screen, the award-winning, Platinum-selling entertainer takes to the road. He recently announced the Real Friends – Fall 2019 tour, which will see him bring his explosive and charismatic live set from coast to coast. The run included a stop at Nashville’s own Ryman Auditorium, where he celebrated his second sold-out headlining show at the historic venue. For tickets and more information, go to

About Chris Janson

Who is Chris Janson? He’s a “live legacy in the making” (Rolling Stone). Breakout country star Janson is a platinum-selling recording artist, high-octane entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, and award-winning singer/songwriter. In the four years since the release of his debut album, the three-time CMA nominee has collected prestigious accolades that place him amongst country music greats, including two No. 1 singles. He most recently took home the trophy for ACM Video of the Year for his Gold-certified, inspiring hit song “Drunk Girl,” which also earned the Song of the Year title at the 2018 MusicRow Awards and was named one of the “Ten Songs I Wish I’d Written” by NSAI. His chart-topping, double-Platinum smash “Buy Me A Boat” earned the same NSAI honor, making him one in a handful of the industry’s most elite artists to earn the title multiple times, as well as the iHeartRadio Music Awards Country Song of the Year. Now it’s onto new music for Janson: “Good Vibes,” the flagship single from his forthcoming album Real Friends, due October 18, is Top 5 at country radio. In addition to his own successes, the talented songwriter has lent his pen to industry peers including Tim McGraw (“Truck Yeah,” “How I’ll Always Be”), LOCASH (“I Love This Life”) and the legendary Hank Williams Jr. (“God Fearin’ Man,” “Those Days Are Gone”).
