About Toby Keith - From his first No. 1 smash "Should've Been A Cowboy" to his latest single "35 MPH Town," Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed hit makers of his era. From one of his previous collections, Clancy's Tavern, the lead single, "Made In America," topped the charts as one of the fastest rising songs in a long line of chart burners from Keith's pen. The second hit, "Red Solo Cup," has become the most remarkable and commercially successful country single in recent memory with a viral video with more than 30 million views while having topped the top downloaded country songs charts. The first single from his upcoming album, "Drunk Americans," debuted at No. 1 Most Added on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts; while his current single, "35 MPH Town," was just released.
At the core of Toby's unparalleled success is his songwriting, which has powered an astounding succession of hit songs to the tune of more than 85 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide. He has been honored by the Nashville Songwriters Association International with its Songwriter/Artist of the Decade distinction, is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year and was named the American Country Awards' Artist of the Decade. He will be inducted to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame this June. His albums have sold more than 40 million copies, ranking him among the top-selling all-genre artists on Billboard's Top 200 Artists of the Decade. Keith is also Billboard's No. 1 Country Artist of the Decade and No. 1 Country Songwriter of the Decade. His tours, including 2014's Shut Up And Hold On Tour, long sponsored by Ford Trucks, have drawn more than one million fans each year for the last decade. This year's Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour presented by Ford F-Series will kick off on May 29 in Mountain View, California. His roster of I Love This Bar And Grill restaurants continues to grow, and his signature spirit Wild Shot has become the No. 1 premium mezcal in the U.S. But Toby's most rewarding experiences, as exhibited in his continual devotion to them, come from giving back. Whether it's helping sick children and their families in his native Oklahoma through the Toby Keith Foundation and their cost-free home, the Ok Kids Korral, or supporting US Troops including 11 USO Tours throughout the world, Keith has never lost touch with the most important things in life.
About Chris Janson: Electrifying Warner Bros. Records singer/songwriter Chris Janson made headlines when “his song “Buy Me A Boat” quickly landed at #1 on the iTunes Country chart and #7 on the all genre chart. In addition, “Chris Janson” trended in the Top 10 as superstars Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Nashville's Charles “Chip” Esten where abuzz on Twitter about the catchy tune. A formidable songwriter in his own right, Janson co-wrote the song with Chris Dubois, who has penned many #1 songs. With undeniable charisma, Janson brings a blue-collar, working-class, boot-stomping hillbilly swagger to bear on every live performance, earning him opening slots for Florida Georgia Line, music legends Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. The Perryville, Missouri native first broke onto the music scene when he landed a year long, four-show-a-day gig at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Nashville's Lower Broadway.
Janson recently stood on the Ryman stage opening for legend Merle Haggard for a two-night, soldout stint. Janson said to the crowd, “it maybe a few short steps from the back door of Tootsie’s but it’s taken me a 10 long years to get here.” He has the upmost respect for traditional country music and the legends that have perform on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry where Janson has logged more than 90 appearances, with most of them resulting in standing ovations from the audience. “For me it’s about the music and connecting with people,” said Janson. “I love being on stage and singing about things I know. As long as I’ve got a guitar and a fan to listen, I’ll be making music.”
It’s that drive and love for music that caught the attention of Warner Music Nashville. “Artistry, passion and hard work are the driving force here at Warner Music Nashville and Chris Janson exemplifies those very qualities,” said WMN President and CEO John Esposito. “The guy played 16 hours a day at Tootsie’s for a year and he’s played the Opry almost a hundred times. Man, that’s dedication and playing for the love of the music. Our VP of A&R Cris Lacy has been championing and following his decade long path in Nashville and we’re ecstatic to welcome such a unique talent to the WMN family.”
The talented songwriter and self-taught musician is currently focused on writing and recording songs for his forthcoming debut album for Warner Bros. which will include the hit “Buy Me A Boat. As the most recent iHeartRadio “On The Verge Artist,” Janson’s “Boat” will be heard across 140 Country radio stations for six consecutive weeks, beginning May 4, 2015. The video for his new single will be produced by CMT, marking the first time the network has financed a music video for an artist.
He began writing at just 18 with an impressive group of artists from the likes of Guns N’ Roses to the esteemed Larry Gatlin. Janson achieved an impressive 10 cuts in only 2 months with major recording artists including Randy Houser, Justin Moore, Joe Nichols, Frankie Ballard, and Tim McGraw’s highest chart debut of his career, “Truck Yeah.” “I write about what I know my family, my truck, & the way I live,” said Janson.
