Not many artists could pull off the performance Chris Janson gave at the 2016 American Country Countdown Awards on May 1.

Armed with nothing but his acoustic guitar, a harmonica and a kick drum, Chris led the crowd in an all-out singalong on his breakthrough hit, “Buy Me a Boat.”

Before he made it big, Chris spent years playing honky-tonks on Lower Broadway in Nashville. He showed off what he learned in those gigs with his bluesy breakdown at the end of the performance.

You can tell from the look on Reba McEntire’s face, Chris definitely blew the roof off the place.

Now that “Buy Me a Boat” has put him on the map, Chris is following it up with his new single, “Holdin’ Her.” Both songs are included on his new album, “Buy Me a Boat,” out now.
