Chris Janson’s Guitar Was Stolen, and He Needs Help
Chris Janson is calling on his fans to ask for help in recovering a precious guitar that has been stolen from him.
The "Drunk Girl" singer turned to Facebook on Thursday (Jan. 3) to post a photo of himself with a custom-made acoustic guitar, writing, "Over the Holiday break, my custom @Fender guitar (shown in photo below) was stolen out of the car, after playing the Opry. If ANYone sees or hears about it, please notify local PD and ME! Thanks y’all."
The rising singer-songwriter is a regular at the Grand Ole Opry, and he performed as part of the Opry at the Ryman series on Dec. 14 and again on Dec. 22. He says he's not interested in punishing the person who stole his guitar as much as he's interested in the safe return of the instrument.
"And if by chance the thieves read this post, please know that I forgive, and will accept an apology and a return, with no repercussion," Janson finishes.
Chris Janson Answers Our Last Question:
The 32-year-old singer scored one of the biggest breakthroughs in country music in recent years with "Buy Me a Boat" in 2015. He reached No. 2 with "Fix a Drink" in 2017, and his current single, "Drunk Girl," is also a Top 10 hit. Janson's exuberant and entertaining live performances have made him one of country's most up-and-coming live acts, and he's a regular at the Opry, where he became a full-fledged member in an emotional ceremony in March of 2018.
Keith Urban asked Janson to join the country music institution, and Garth Brooks was on hand to formally induct him. A tearful Janson addressed the crowd, saying, "How do you not cry on a night like this?"
"To know me is to know I really, truly love the Grand Ole Opry," he continued. "This will be a moment I will never forget. Thanks for making my dreams come true, and thanks for buying a ticket to the Opry to see it happen! I hope you come back a million times! I’ll buy the ticket for ya. I don’t even care. I love you that much!"
