Bigger Picture Group’s hot country newcomer and dynamic multi-instrumentalist Chris Janson made his Grand Ole Opry debut last Friday night (2/15) on the famous stage surrounded by family, friends, fans and the Bigger Picture Group team. Janson opened with his addictive new single “Better I Don’t,” which is quickly climbing up the charts and was the second most added song to country radio playlists nationwide the week of release.

To celebrate with him, WSIX’s Amy Paige and Michael Bryan thought they “better do” dive into the congratulatory cake from Bigger Picture Group.

He closed out the debut sharing the stage with one of his best buddies, James Otto, to perform the moving song “When I’m Holding Her” that they co-wrote. Both songs will be featured on his debut full-length album produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band), which is expected for release later this year.
