Chris Janson Has ‘Simple’ Goals for the Next 10 Years of His Career

Chris Janson‘s major-label debut album, Buy Me a Boat, is only a few months old, but the singer-songwriter is already laying plans out for the next decade of his life. After years of showing remarkable tenacity when record deals fell through and his career had more than one false start, Janson says the next 10 years should be a piece of cake.

“I accomplished every goal I had when I moved here, this year. Every single one,” Janson told The Boot and other reporters at a recent media event. “So in the next 10 years, I would like to just have a substantial career for the rest of my life, that I can go out and play music for people, and having hit songs definitely opens that door bigger and broader. I just would never want that to fizzle out. I always want to be able to do that.”

Some might dream of expensive houses and lavish vacations, but Janson’s goals are much more down-to-Earth.

“My goals are simple: I want to continue to play the Opry, and if I’m fortunate to have some more No. 1s, that’s great,” he says. “Just having songs on the radio is a big enough deal for me. And as a songwriter, I’ve heard a lot of people in the past b—hing about not having singles. I’m just proud to get a cut; I’m just glad to get in the game, have a publishing deal and be working in this town. It’s a rare thing these days, and I’m glad to be a part of it.

“… Take it from a guy who knows all sides and [has] been more cocky than I’d want to admit to say,” he continues. “I’m just at a place now — it didn’t take success to get there. It took a lot of God, and it took my wife and my kids. This is just icing on the cake.”

Buy Me a Boat is available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes.
