A Dream Come True – Chris Janson

Chris Janson realized a lifelong dream recently when he got to see his stuff on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Janson was at the Hall of Fame to get a personal tour of the ACM Gallery exhibit, which contains an entire case filled with items from his life and career. Some of the artifacts on display include his signature Fender harmonica, his first #1 plaque and a vintage Yamaha guitar signed by Merle Haggard, which Chris used while writing all of the songs for his debut album, Buy Me A Boat.

· Janson says, “Being part of this exhibit is a top three musical achievement of my career. It’s right up there with playing on the Grand Ole Opry and having my songs played on country radio.”

· Other artists featured in the ACM Gallery exhibit include Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini and Chris Stapleton.
