Chris Janson was signed to BNA Records (Kenny Chesney) back in 2010 and had a single that reached the top 60 on the charts. That’s a pretty good accomplish for most people, but Chris wanted more. The relationship didn’t work out for whatever reason and Chris had to start things over.
This past year he had another breakthrough by co-writing Truck Yeah for Tim McGraw. That kind of gives you a little insight into the kind of music Chris is going to bring to the party in 2013.
Chris is now signed with Bigger Picture (Chris Cagle). His first single is out right now and there is a five song EP available as well. Here is a track by track review of all the songs.
Est. 1986 – Chris Janson
Overall you can hear that Chris likes to have a good time. He sings about different things that go on in life. He has an eye for noticing things taking place and then turning them into a catchy song. That’s half the battle right there. People are going to like this music. It’s perfect for a Saturday night when you’re hanging with your buddies.
1. Better I Don’t
The first single is probably the best song on the entire set. It’s about a guy that realizes he’s a little rough around the edges. When he makes decisions he just seems to get into trouble. He knows it and does his best to just avoid things.
2. Redneck Revival
Here is the redneck anthem on the collection. You have no doubt that Chris Janson is from the country. This is the perfect Saturday night country song.
3. When I’m Holding Her
The ballad on the set is a great song. It’s all about the love the guy in the song feels for his girl. No matter where he is or how bad he’s screwed up he thinks about holding her.
4. Hey, Hey, My Money’s All Gone
This song is fun. It’s got a fun beat that reminds me of Joe Diffie and Brad Paisley. Great song here that could easily be a fan favorite.
The final song on the album gets the big time harmonica treatment. I love that Chris brings the harmonica back to country music. It’s one of my favorite instruments and there isn’t a enough out there right now. This song is about the history of corn in the US. It’s one of the biggest products of the country with people all over harvesting it.
