SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. – Country music fans can look forward to a lively performance from singing/songwriting sensation Chris Janson set for this May in Summerside.

The tour showcases Janson’s unique ability to stride country past with country future, earning the respect and appreciation of any audience.

Special guest Tristan Horncastle, described as a breakout artist on the country music charts, will open for Janson.

Janson’s performances have been called a “live legacy in the making” and he assures he’s lived all the songs he performs.

“I wrote all these songs and they all come from an absolutely real place.”

Janson’s career-defining success began with his platinum-certified No.1 hit “Buy Me a Boat.” Other hits include “Fix a Drink” and current single “Drunk Girl” from his sophomore album “Everybody.”

The performer has also penned songs for other country music stars such as Tim McGraw, Hank Williams Jr. and more.

The electrifying multi-instrumentalist is known as much for his hit songwriting as his performances, with Rolling Stone describing him as having “a mesmerizing stage presence that most arena-headlining artists would kill for.”

Recently selected by legendary entertainer Garth Brooks to open the final show on his massive World Tour, Janson has also become a Grand Ole Opry regular.

Guest performer for the Summerside show, Horncastle is known for songs like “She Brings the Beer” and “You Want” and is eager to share more of his life with his new record.

Jason will take the stage on May 4 at Credit Union Place right after Horncastles performance starting at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $52.99 and can be ordered by calling Ticketmaster at 1-855-985-5000, online or in person at the Credit Union Place box office.
