Mustached Man Monday for Movember

Chris Janson

Today, on this Monday in Movember, we introduce you to Chris Janson. Chris is, ironically, in the process of growing out his facial hair in honor of this month, so it definitely made sense for us to spotlight this spirited new artist!

Chris Janson began collaborating as a songwriter at eighteen years of age with classic rock band, Guns N’ Roses. In 2009, Chris recorded two duets with Holly Williams, granddaughter of Hank Williams, Sr., on her album Here with Me. Instead of heading to veterinary school, which was his original plan, Chris made the move that many musicians before him likewise made — the move to Nashville, Tennessee.

Congratulations to Justin Moore! His brand new album “Off The Beaten Path” is a number one record. It was his best-ever sales week, and sold over 97,000 copies in its debut week. Justin’s other two albums “Outlaws Like Me,” and his self-titled 2009 release both sold 65,000 and 34,000 copies.

His sales have placed him in second on the all-genres album sales chart behind Jack Johnson’s “From Here To Now To You.” Jack’s album sold 117,000 copies in its first week.

Justin’s new album is now available everywhere music is sold digitally or physically. Have you gotten your copy yet? What’s your favorite tracks?

Justin Moore Celebrates His Accomplishments

Justin Moore has reason every reason to celebrate. His single “Til My Last Day”  recently became his third number one single. If this wasn’t reason enough, his two albums, Justin Moore and Outlaws Like Me have been certified GOLD. Collectively, these albums have had over one million sales.

Yesterday evening (3/12), industry, family and friends came together in Nashville to honour Justin’s achievements, as well as the achievements of songwriters Jeremy Stover, Brian Maher, publishers Big Machine Music, Sony/ATV/EMI and Bigger Picture and The Valory Music Co. promotion team. This is the second number one hit for the trio of songwriters, with “Small Town USA” being the first.
