Chris Janson dropped his album Real Friends on October 18th, the follow up album to his 2017 Everybody. Janson called into The Bobby Bones Show to talk with Bobby Bones about his idols, his collaborations on his new album, a lyrics tattoo he may get, and the loudest song on his set.
Currently on his Real Friends Fall 2019 Tour, Janson says that his current single "Good Vibes" is the song everyone seems to sing back the loudest to him. The song is currently top on the country charts and a great anthem for having a good time.
Janson's album was inspired by all of his friends, hence the album title name. So it makes sense that his friend Blake Shelton joined him on the album for a song. Janson says their friendship started because of the Grand Ole Opry hunt that happens ever year. Since then, the two have been good friends and when the song came up, Janson just called up Shelton to be on it and he agreed. This isn't the first time the two have worked together though, Janson was on tour with Shelton before and Janson says he's never forgotten that time, especially because of Shelton's genuine niceness to all of Janson's crew.
When asked about his idols, Janson said Keith Urban, Papa, and Bobby Bones are all people he looks up to for different reasons. He's also a huge fan of Luke Bryan, he confessed that if he had to get a tattoo of song lyrics, he would get Bryan's song "Huntin', Fishin', and Lovin' Every Day" on him somewhere.
