We have to start this post by saying, if you have never seen Chris Janson in concert, YOU NEED TOO! He is an insane entertainer and will blow you away. You will thank us later!
We are going to review Chris Janson's "Fix A Drink Ep" in anticipation of his sophomore album, Everyone, which will be released on September 22nd. This is a very upbeat EP and we hope to get to experience more of this energy in his upcoming sophomore album. Below are his 5 tracks off of his EP and a little bit of what to expect when listening to them.
"Fix A Drink" is the perfect drinking song. It has also been called the song of the summer, and is Chris' current single. It is a extremely catchy and upbeat song that just puts you in a good mood whenever you hear it. This song was an excellent decision to be his current single. After having singles, like "Buy Me A Boat" and "Holdin' Her", I am excited to see what the next single on his upcoming album will be.
We would describe this song as an upbeat "love song". He describes what his perfect date night would be and for him, "it's a perfect night, and it's go your name on it".
"Everybody" is the name of his upcoming sophomore album, Everybody. It is another catchy, upbeat song. A good explanation of this song is how everybody wants to have what they don't have, but they don't want to put in the work to get to that point. We think that this will be his next and first single off his new album, and we couldn't be more excited if this really DID happen. We guess we will see on September 22.
This is our personal favorite song off this EP. Again, another very upbeat catchy song. In this song, he talks about how his "perfect girl" is little mix of everything. He also does the perfect comparisons of the good and bad in the things he mentions in the song. Did we mention that their is a killer harmonica solo in it as well?!
Our favorite line: "Girl, your like Cinderella in a blender, with a little bit of Wicked Witch kicking in the mix"
The final song off of his Fix A Drink EP is "Redneck Life". He explains how he didn't choose the redneck life, it is just part of who he is. This is a good song that shows who he really is as a person and we love it!
