Chris Janson announces Real Friends fall 2019 tour

Album kicks off Sept 20th in Iowa

Fresh off the heels of announcing his new album Real Friends, critically acclaimed, platinum-selling country artist Chris Janson has announced a national tour of the same name. The 22 date Real Friends Fall 2019 tour will see Janson bring his explosive and charismatic live set from coast to coast, including a sold out show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on September 25th where he will be joined by chart-topping label-mate Michael Ray.

Real Friends, Janson’s latest Warner Music Nashville release, is due out on October 18th. Fans who pre-order the album will also have instant access to download four tracks, including the recently released “Done.” Songwriters on the 13 track project, for which Janson served as co-producer and co-writer, span industry veterans to new faces. He also teams up with label-mate and fellow Grand Ole Opry member Blake Shelton to perform the record’s title track.

Janson’s current single “Good Vibes” has rocketed into the Top 10 at country radio ahead of the album’s release as it nears 37 million on-demand streams. The two-time chart-topper performed the song last month on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Billboard calling the track an “electric, juiced-up anthem.”
