Chart-Climbing Hit-Maker Also Earns CMA â€œNew Artist of the Yearâ€ Nod
Janson Teams Up With Bass Pro Shops & Cabelaâ€™s
Nashville, Tenn. â€“ CMA New Artist of the Year nomineeÂ Chris JansonÂ climbs into the Top 10 at country radio this week with his powerful single, â€œDrunk Girl,â€ which The TennesseanÂ once called â€œa shoo-in for a song of the year nominationâ€ â€“ a prediction that has now come true. The â€œheart-piercing balladâ€ (People), which is matching its radio rise with nearly 50 million on-demand streams, has also earned a nod for Music Video of the Year.
Janson took time out of his busy touring schedule to stop by his record label, Warner Music Nashville, to thank them for their enthusiasm and support. He told the WMN staff, â€œI just wanted to tell yâ€™all that being an artist on this record label is truly a blessing. Thank you for believing in me and â€˜Drunk Girl.â€™ This song carries such a heavy weight that I didnâ€™t quite know it was going to carry, and I feel like weâ€™ve done this together. The song and video are changing lives, starting with mine. It has humbled me so much. You never know how a song is going to touch people and it has surpassed more than I could have ever imagined.â€
In addition, Janson has teamed up with Bass Pro Shops & Cabelaâ€™s to promote the outdoor lifestyle that has been an important part of his life since childhood. Regarding this partnership, Janson says, â€œTeaming up with Bass Pro Shops & Cabelaâ€™s could not be more perfect. Iâ€™m an avid outdoorsman and I love taking my son hunting and fishing.â€
