Mixologist Chris Janson’s New Single Wants You to Sit Back, Relax and “Fix a Drink” [Listen]

Chris Janson may not drink alcoholic beverages anymore, but that hasn’t stopped country music’s most energetic performer from mixing libation-riddled verses into his songs. Case in point, take a look at Chris’ three previous singles and his affinity for lacing his lyrics with alcoholic-related references.

  1. “But Me a Boat”
    It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
    To float down on the water with a beer
  2. “Power of Positive Drinkin’”
    Beer one tastes just like a beer
    Beer two, a little bit better than one
    Beer three, beer four
    Yeah, that was pretty damn good so hand me one more
    Beer five and I’m comin’ alive
    Beer six, man that went down quick
    Seven, eight, nine, I’m feelin’ fine
    And by number ten life’s good again, hey
    Yeah, that’s the power of positive drinkin’
  3. “Holdin’ Her”
    I’ve woke up in places I couldn’t remember
    Who’s lying next to me or even how I got there
    And it’s hard to believe that’s how I used to roll
    One Tuesday night in an underground pool hall
    That’s where I saw her for the first time
    Right around last call

Chris’ new single, “Fix a Drink,” keeps the party flowing. Whether your preference is a cold Mountain Dew or a Jack and Coke, it makes no nevermind. Sit back, relax and pour—or mix—yourself a tasty beverage.

“I wanted to be a part of something with my co-writers that made people feel good,” says Chris to Nash Country Daily. “Everyone knows that I’m not an alcohol drinker anymore, but what a lot of people don’t know is I love the whole mixology subculture. You grow a big Civil War beard and you learn how to mix a cool drink. If I could grow a beard like that, believe me, I’d be a mixologist, 100 percent. I can fix a drink, and my drink of choice is a cold can of Mountain Dew, but I can fix all kinds of drinks. I’ve done it for years. And then when the song idea for ‘Fix a Drink’ came together, it felt like a no-brainer. It just works. You can be drinking a Hi-C or a Jack and Coke and it doesn’t matter. It’s a fun, feel-good song for the summer.”

The new tune, which Chris co-wrote with Chris DuBois and Ashley Gorley, is the lead single from his upcoming album, which he plans to release this summer. “Fix a Drink” will hit country radio on May 22, but it’s available on iTunes right now.

“The album is going to be out no later than August,” says Chris. “I’m excited about it because I really had time to write this record.”
