Chris Janson melted fans’ hearts when he brought his 3-year-old son, Jesse Bo Janson, onstage during his concert at the Chumash Casino Resort in in Santa Ynez, California, on Aug. 18.

The country music singer has been teaching his toddler how to play the harmonica. So when they shared the spotlight, they took turns playing the harpoon into the microphone.

Chris’ wife, Kelly Lynn, was so pleased by the adorable father/son moment that she posted a video on Instagram, and included the caption, “Cutest moment ever last night! Our baby onstage with @thechrisjanson.”

In this clip, Chris gets down on his knees to match the height of his child. He then plays a chord into the harmonica before handing the instrument off to his kid. Then, little Jesse delivers an equally impressive wail, proving that he may one day walk in his dad’s shoes.

Fans watched as the “Buy Me a Boat” singer praised his son’s confidence, telling him he did a good job.


Jesse isn’t an only child in the Janson household. In fact, he has one sister named Georgia and two older half-siblings, Graham and Chel. Chris didn’t forget to show off his sweet daughter either! On Aug. 21, he posted a picture of the little one on Twitter, and added a caption that referenced the title of one of his singles, “My baby girl 1st day of school —#Holdinher.”
