As his party-flowing, summer single, “Fix a Drink,” continues to climb up the Billboard Country Airplay chart (currently No. 26), Chris Janson has announced that he will release his sophomore album, Everybody, on Sept. 22. As the follow-up to his 2015 debut album, Buy Me a Boat, the upcoming record will include all of the songs from his recent EP, Fix a Drink, as well as additional tunes.
“I’m excited about it,” says Chris to Nash Country Daily. “I’ve had time to write this record. I put songs on this thing—it’s been a very strenuous process, in a good way. I’m generally the kind of person who goes, ‘Hey, let’s [make a record] real quick,’ and everyone around me has really opened my eyes up to, ‘Yeah, let’s hurry up and do it, but let’s also take the time to pick the best songs and pick what you want to put on this album. You have time, breathe, do it.’ And that’s what I’ve done, and it’s been awesome.”
Chris will continue his stint on Sam Hunt’s 15 in a 30 Tour through September, before joining Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on their Soul2Soul Tour in October.
