Bigger Picture Group’s hot country newcomer and dynamic multi-instrumentalist Chris Janson made his Grand Ole Opry debut last Friday night (2/15) on the famous stage surrounded by family, friends, fans and the Bigger Picture Group team.
Chris Janson’s Grand Ole Opry debut last Friday night (2/15) reaches one of his biggest musical goals. To celebrate with him, WSIX’s Amy Paige and Michael Bryan thought they “better do” dive into the congratulatory cake from Bigger Picture Group.
Janson opened with his addictive new single “Better I Don’t,” which is quickly climbing up the charts and was the second most added song to country radio playlists nationwide the week of release. He closed out the debut sharing the stage with one of his best buddies, James Otto, to perform the moving song “When I’m Holding Her” that they co-wrote. Both songs will be featured on his debut full-length album produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band), which is expected for release later this year.
Since releasing “Better I Don’t,” Janson is already garnering nationwide buzz from media and fans alike. With undeniable charisma, Janson brings a blue-collar, working-class, boot-stomping hillbilly redneck attitude to bear on every live performance, earning him opening slots for music legends Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. The talented songwriter co-wrote Tim McGraw’s fastest rising single of his career with “Truck Yeah” and began writing at just 18 with an impressive group of musicians from the likes of Guns N’ Roses to Bill Anderson. The Perryville, Missouri, native first broke onto the Nashville music scene when he landed a year long, four show a day gig at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Nashville’s Lower Broadway.
