Chris Janson sets ‘Fix A Drink’ EP

Chris Janson has set his new single “Fix A Drink” and title track EP for this summer. The single was released digitally on Friday, May 5th, but will impact at country radio on Monday, May 22nd. A five-song EP will follow June 9th on Warner Music Nashville. The music video is hitting TV airwaves this weekend exclusively on CMT and features some special guests and familiar faces.

“The reaction and support for ‘Fix A Drink’ has been amazing and overwhelming,” Janson says in a press release. “I am thrilled to have it on country music radio! This video is just icing on the cake. We had a ball. My good buddies took the time to be in it, and that meant the world to me.”

Janson co-wrote the track with Chris Dubois and Ashley Gorley. It’s the first single from his sophomore album due later this year. He says he wanted to release the EP to coincide with his summer tour with Sam Hunt and Maren Morris.

“I’m having the time of my life and that’s exactly how (these songs) are reflecting,” Janson tells Taste of Country. “My kids are happy and healthy and so is my wife, and it starts there for me. Other than that, everything else is icing on the cake, so making this album was a piece of cake. It was a lot of fun and no stress whatsoever.”

The summer will also bring the singer/songwriter to select dates of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul tour.
