Kix Brooks and American Country Countdown are on CISN Country 103.9 Edmonton and Country 105 Calgary Saturday’s 8am-Noon.
Chris Janson’s Done is a two-week #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart followed by ACC.
Done is Chris Janson’s fourth career and second Billboard Country Airplay #1.
“This is the greatest feeling in the world. It’s always been my dream to hear my songs played on the radio, but this one is special. I can’t describe how grateful Kelly and I are to have the world embrace our story. Thanks to my family, my team, my fans and country radio for supporting us all the way.”
Chris Janson co-wrote Done with Mitch Oglesby, Jamie Paulin, and Matt Roy.
Done is the second single from Janson’s LP Real Friends.
“Everything on the record is about one take on the vocal. I sang it all the way through. It was a great process and I think it’s my best album cause I didn’t go anywhere to do it, other than my house. I was on nobody’s time schedule and had no stress of we have a deadline here. There was no headbutting.”
“I really feel like I’m hitting my stride right now and I feel really confident yet humbled by the whole experience and I’ll tell you, you know some people don’t even make it to their third album and I’m getting to do that and already thinking about the fourth one.”

@thekellyjanson I love you with all my heart and everything in me. I appreciate you letting me, be ME. You’ve always had my back, and I’ll always have yours too. Eyes for nobody but you since the first time I saw you. I seriously look forward to even more years in our life together. I plan to live well into my 100’s……so get ready. You are so freakin hot. I love you so much. Thank you for being my wife. You make marriage happy. Happy 10th Anniversary
“It’s a love song about Kelly, and I think it’s quite possibly maybe the best song I’ve ever written. It’s my favorite that I’ve ever had. It’s just about her, man.”
“First time I saw her. I said the words. I said done and done. I’m gonna marry her and that’s it. So naturally, we wrote a song called Done, you know.”
“I just write real stuff about real life. And when it came to be on the album, man, that was one of the easiest first picks right out of the shoot, you know. I wanted it to kinda sound like mid-nineties, George Strait, four-week number one type song. So that’s how I produced it.”
“The moment I first saw my wife Kelly, I knew that was it. I was done. This song is about knowing right then and there that I’d work for the rest of my life to make her happy. It’s just the truth. That’s why it’s so special. A big thanks and congratulations to my co-writers Mitch, Jamie and Matt for helping make this song come to life. And, of course, to country radio for sharing it with the world.”
“Staying positive is one of the greatest things you can remind yourself to do, especially in this time. If you woke up today, you’re blessed to be alive. That’s the bottom line. Everything else should just be icing on the cake!”
