Chris Janson is one of the latest songwriters in Nashville to use his success with writing credits to launch a career as a performer and he's got a song out that a lot of people are talking about.

Chris wrote "Hard To Love" which Lee Brice had a big hit with. He's also written songs for Tim McGraw, Justin Moore and many other artists. His new single is "Buy Me A Boat" which is climbing the country charts with its catchy melody and is so very timely as we enter the summer season. I love boats and water so this hits home for me.

"Buy Me A Boat"

 I ain’t rich, but I damn sure wanna be

Working like a dog all day, ain’t working for me

I wish I had a rich uncle that’d kick the bucket

And that I was sitting on a pile like Warren Buffett

I know everybody says

Money can’t buy happiness

But it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it

It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets

Yeah, and I know what they say,

Money can’t buy everything

Well, maybe so,

But it could buy me a boat

They call me redneck, white trash and blue collar

But I could change all that if I had a couple million dollars

I keep hearing that money is the root of all evil

And you can’t fit a camel through the eye of a needle

I’m sure that’s probably true,

But it still sounds pretty cool

‘Cause it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it

It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets

Yeah, and I know what they say,

Money can’t buy everything

Well, maybe so,

But it could buy me a boat

To float down on the water with a beer…

I hear the Powerball Lotto is a-sitting’ on a hundred mill…

Well, that would buy me a brand new rod and reel…

And it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it

It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some Silver Bullets

Yeah, and I know what they say,

Money can’t buy everything

Well, maybe so,

But it could buy me a boat

Yeah, and I know what they say,

Money can’t buy everything

Well, maybe so,

But it could buy me a boat

It could buy me a boat.
