NASHVILLE, TN (June 26, 2024) – Chris Janson celebrated the success behind his fifth No. 1 single, “All I Need Is You,” yesterday (6/25) as the music industry gathered at BMI’s Nashville office. Produced by Julian Raymond and co-written by Janson, Brad Clawson (BMI), Ashley Gorley (ASCAP) and Mitch Oglesby (ASCAP), the song serves as the lead single from Janson’s album, The Outlaw Side Of MeServing as his Big Machine Label Group debut single, “All I Need Is You,” is followed by the release of his current single “Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get,” which is climbing through the Top 30 and is the first release on the recently re-named Nashville Harbor Records & Entertainment imprint. 

Hosted by BMI and ASCAP and emceed by BMI’s Clay Bradley, the gathering included remarks from the songwriters, producers, publishers and label teams to commemorate the song’s success. During Janson’s appreciative remarks, he invited members of his radio promotion team to join him on stage to present them each with a gift.

Chris Janson, proud member of the Grand Ole Opry and multi-platinum songwriter and artist, is part of Country music’s new breed. In touch with the lighter side of life with self-penned No. 1s “Fix A Drink,” “Good Vibes,” and the four-times Platinum “Buy Me A Boat,” as well as the more thoughtful truths of “Done,” “Things You Can’t Live Without,” and the CMA Song of the Year nominee and ACM Video of the Year “Drunk Girl.” Both “Boat” and “Girl” were named to the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s prestigious “Songs I Wish I Wish I’d Written” list, which is why artists like Tim McGraw (“Truck Yeah,” “How I’ll Always Be”), Justin Moore (“Off The Beaten Path”), LOCASH (“I Love This Life”), Cody Johnson (“Let’s Build A Fire”), and the iconic Hank Williams Jr. (“God Fearin’ Man,” “Those Days Are Gone”) reach for Janson’s songs for their own projects. Beyond his artistry are his live shows, where all that heart-on-the-four-wheeler songwriting meets the fans where they come to rock. Rolling Stone proclaimed him “a live legacy in the making,” and Janson is a frequent presence at the nation’s biggest country festivals, tours, and unexpected sit-ins. For a man known for his outdoors lifestyle and collaborations with Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s, making music from his own life has established the harmonica-forward multi-instrumentalist the go-to guy for young country for the last decade. Janson’s Big Machine Label Group debut single, “All I Need Is You,” recently hit the No. 1 spot on the Country music charts (marking five career No. 1 hits) and his latest single “Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get,” is the first release on the recently re-named Nashville Harbor Records & Entertainment imprint.
