Chris Janson stopped by Live With Kelly & Ryan yesterday (Sept. 26) to
fix the world’s problems perform his Top 10 single, “Fix a Drink.”
The energetic tune, which Chris co-wrote with Chris DuBois and Ashley Gorley, is the lead single from Chris’ new album, Everybody, which dropped on Sept. 22.
“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.”
Watch Chris perform “Fix a Drink” below—and be sure to stick around for the harmonica solo at the end.
