WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE (WMN) has signed singer/songwriter CHRIS JANSON to a recording contract. Additionally, JANSON will be featured as part of iHEARTMEDIA's "On The Verge Artist" programming. JANSON recently became the artist on everyone's lips when his independent song, "Buy Me A Boat" reached number one on the iTUNES Country chart after some airplay from the PREMIERE NETWORKS nationally syndicated iHEARTMEDIA WSIX/NASHVILLE-based BOBBY BONES SHOW (ARTIST INFO 3/29).
"Artistry, passion, and hard work are the driving force here at WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE, and CHRIS JANSON exemplifies those very qualities," explained WMN President/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/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."
