No one was prepared for the magic – and music – that happened between country singer, Chris Janson, and a patient at Levine Children’s Hospital (LCH) in Charlotte, NC, when Chris made a tour stop at Seacrest Studios.
LCH patient, Ryan, asked Chris to sing his hit song, “Better I Don’t.” (Chris came with guitar and harmonica in hand.) What happened next held the crowd in Seacrest Studios spellbound! Chris began singing only to find that Ryan was backing him up, word-for-word, as he sang! Watch the video to see the amazing, and awesome, duet!
As he sang songs and answered questions in the packed studio, Chris made sure to give some words of encouragement, along with an open invitation for patients to come to one of his concerts when they start to feel better.
Called “the future of country music,” Janson serenaded the crowd with the Top 10 Hot Country Songs hit, “Buy Me A Boat.” He also delighted patients with the song he wrote for Tim McGraw called, “Truck Yeah.”
Patients learned about the early days of Chris’ career – how he went from sleeping in his car when he first got to Nashville – to how he learned to play the harmonica. He even told patients about his nerves during his first performance at the Grand Ole Opry in 2013. “I don’t get nervous at a lot of shows or a lot of concerts or anything, but I get nervous over the Grand Ole Opry, and rightfully so, it’s the mother church of country music, and for me, personally, it was one of my top 3 goals I ever wanted to do with music.”
Thank you, Chris Janson, for bringing your music, your magic, and “Buy Me A Boat” to Seacrest Studios in North Carolina! We look forward to having you back soon!
