Chris Janson has had an interesting ride in country music thus far. I don’t even think he’s 30 years old yet, but he’s been around toying with the big time and it sounds like he might have his first big hit on his hands.
Check it out.
Buy Me A Boat – Chris Janson
This is a fun song. It’s about a guy that seems to be kind of fed up with living paycheck to paycheck. And that seems to fit in well with what Chris has gone through the last few years.
The song is about how a guy seems to realize that money won’t buy the really important things in life like love and family, but it can buy you some cool things like a boat and a truck.
I think it’s a little in jest and that’s cool. The song really has a great melody and the production is done well. It sounds good and modern and has been doing well on radio.
Chris, I believe, has been around for over five years at least on the radar as an artist and songwriter. He’s written hits for other major artists. He’s been on a few different labels and I guess he actually self-released this single until Warner Bros. picked him up and started promoting it.
So it’s cool to see that the song is already doing well and it could be destined for the top ten or maybe even higher. We’ll have to see.
What do you think of the song?
