Welch, Minn. (September 23, 2019) Country stars Chris Janson and Thompson Square will perform Live in the Island Event Center on November 23.
Chris Janson is a platinum-selling recording artist, high-octane entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, and award-winning singer/songwriter as well as the youngest living member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Janson’s new song, “Good Vibes,” is the debut single from his soon to be released third studio album. His sophomore album, Everybody, produced his gold-certified second No. 1 hit single, “Fix A Drink,” the chart-topping follow-up to his No. 1, double-platinum debut smash “Buy Me A Boat.” His CMA-nominated song, “Drunk Girl,” won the 2019 ACM Award for “Video of The Year,” has been named Music Row’s “Song of the Year,” and was called “the most important song to come out of Nashville in years.” Janson is the only artist in 2018 who opened the CMA Awards and closed out the ACM Awards, with what Rolling Stone called a “must-see performance.”
Thompson Square, the husband and wife team of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, burst on the country music scene in 2010 with an organic vocal blend that is reminiscent of country duet icons Johnny Cash and June Carter. Their debut album included the hit single “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not,” which was No. 1 on the Billboard’s Country Songs chart, is double-
platinum status and was also nominated for a Grammy Award.
