I recently had the chance to sit down with my buddy Chris Janson to talk about all things music, life, and even survival tactics! I have had the chance to interview Chris a few times, and he always has a ton of stuff to say about what is going on in his life.
Currently, there is a lot of new in Chris Janson’s life: He just signed a new record deal with Big Machine Music Group, he just put out his first song on the new label, and he is working on a new album with some super secret collaborations that he was not able to give us too many details on.
Something he was able to speak a lot on, though, is his new radio single, “All I Need Is You.” This song represents Chris Janson to the fullest and displays his love for his wife/manager, Kelly.
“Man, couldn’t be more excited about it,” he says. “Straight up love song, of course about Kelly, I wrote this on the back porch of our beach house.”
You could totally see him light up when he was talking about this song and his wife.
“No matter what goes on during the day, or during the week or year or whatever, the premise of the song is all I need is you, no matter what, and the premise is true,” he says.
The star explained to me that he is his own worst critic, but when he finished the song, once he heard it, he was blown away. “All I Need Is You” will be included on an upcoming album from his new record label — sometime this summer, he told me.
I was wondering what his wife’s first reaction was and he says she loved it. I don’t think his wife just said that to appease him, either — Chris told me that she is always brutally honest with him about his music, and she has for sure knocked him down a notch or two in the past on a song that he thought was amazing, but she did not agree.
