It’s been a long time coming for Chris Janson.
Though his single ‘Buy Me a Boat’ has led to much success and its lyrics reflect that, getting there was tough for Janson. He was a struggling musician for years and worried how he would find the money to pay the musicians who recorded on the single. While all of this was going on, Janson prepared to sing on national television and you could see the emotion in his performance. “I got done playing and Keith Urban got up and gave me a standing ovation and started the whole thing. It made me feel like, ‘Okay, you’ve done it now,'” Janson says. “For every door that shuts there is one open. When you quit worrying about those closed doors… I find that things work a lot better.”
