Chris Janson Sells Out “Front and Center” Taping at Opry City Stage


Chris Janson performed for a sold out crowd recently at Opry City Stage in Times Square for an episode of the PBS concert series, Front and Center, the first ever episode filmed at the iconic venue. Janson, the newest and youngest living member of the Grand Ole Opry, captivated the high-spirited audience with a high-energy 75-minute set, performing No. 1 singles “Buy Me a Boat” and “Fix a Drink,” as well as his newest single “Drunk Girl,” which was named MusicRow’s “Song of the Year” and is currently a Top 15 on the country airplay charts.  The episode will air during Front and Center’s upcoming 9th season.

Since 2012 Front and Center has profiled some of the music world’s most well-known artists, combining behind the scenes interviews with intimate performances. The show will return in 2019 with a fresh line-up of Grammy Award winners, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, Billboard chart toppers, CMA winners, and emerging artists. Musicians have included Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, Kane Brown, Clint Black, Luke Combs and many more.

Janson is currently on the “Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour” with Jake Owen, and they both will be performing at the WGAR Country Jam on Saturday, August 18 at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds in Berea.
