Featuring special opening guest: Tim Montana
Chris Janson is a “live legacy in the making” (Rolling Stone). Breakout country star Janson is a platinum-selling recording artist, high-octane entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, award-winning singer/songwriter, and Grand Ole Opry member. The ACM award-winner has collected prestigious accolades that place him among country music greats. His debut single, “Buy Me A Boat,” was recognized as the iHeartRadio Music Awards “Country Song of the Year,” and MusicRow named his poignant single, “Drunk Girl,” their “Song of the Year” winner. Bobby Bones named Janson “One of the greatest entertainers in country music.” His big hits include: “Buy Me ABoat” (No. 1, 3x Platinum); “Fix A Drink” (No. 1, Gold); “Drunk Girl” (ACM Award-winning, Gold); “Good Vibes” (No. 1, Gold); “Done” (multi-week No. 1, Gold). Janson has earned more than 7.4 BILLION airplay impressions to date and upwards of 1.7 BILLION global career streams.
Chiefly considered a Country rocker, Tim Montana is a true Renaissance man, moonlighting as a TV personality, marksman, father, husband, grill master, songwriter, hot sauce connoisseur, hell-raiser, truck driver, philanthropist, and businessman. Raised in a single-wide without electricity in the wilds near Butte, Montana, Tim Montana (yes, it’s his real name), spent many years grinding it out by taking odd jobs just to pay the bills (like cleaning kennels, frying chickens, operating carousel, being a ranch hand)and racked up lifetimes worth of unbelievable stories.
With a mix of innate talent, unrelenting hustle, grit, gasoline, and magnetic charisma, Montana is now signed with Music Knox Records/BBR Music Group. Tim released his label debut album (produced by the award-winning Michael Knox), Long Shots, in April 2021 and is already prepared to release its follow-up EP, Reno. While the Long Shots title served as a nod to the hard road Montana had to take to achieve his dream and how he overcame his struggles against all odds. Reno is a display of gratitude to all of those who have taken a gamble on him and supported him in being his authentic self. The music, befitting of its lyrical themes, is Country Rock—but don’t mistake it for Southern. With geography impacting Tim’s musical influences, he’s located somewhere between Seattle and its grunge, Texas’ roadhouse, Nashville’s Country, Wyoming’s Chris LeDoux, and the Heartland’s Rock. The music of both projects embraces hard living, the American experience, and the blue-collar way—it’s an ode to the underdogs and screams “hard work pays off,” something Tim knows a lot about.
