This will be our 20th Anniversary of Country for Kids and we have featured some of the best country music stars, artists such as; Scotty McCrerry, Josh Turner, Sara Evans, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Gary Allan, Rodney Atkins, Phil Vassar, Jo Dee Messina, Craig Morgan are just a few.
We are very excited about having Chris Janson headline Country for Kids 2020. Who is Chris Janson? He’s a “live legacy in the making” (Rolling Stone). Breakout country star Janson is a platinum-selling recording artist, high-octane entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, and award-winning singer/songwriter. In the four years since the release of his debut album, the three-time CMA nominee has collected prestigious accolades that place him amongst country music greats, including two No. 1 singles. He most recently took home the trophy for ACM Video of the Year for his Gold-certified, inspiring hit song “Drunk Girl,” which also earned the Song of the Year title at the 2018 MusicRow Awards. His chart-topping, double-Platinum smash “Buy Me A Boat” was named the iHeartRadio Music Awards Country Song of the Year and declared one of the “Ten Songs I Wish I’d Written” by NSAI. Now its onto new music for Janson: “Good Vibes,” the flagship single from his forthcoming album due this fall, is approaching Top 20 at country radio. In addition to his own successes, the talented songwriter has lent his pen to his industry peers. Tim McGraw (“Truck Yeah,” “How I’ll Always Be”), LOCASH (“I Love This Life”) and the legendary Hank Williams Jr. (“God Fearin’ Man,” “Those Days Are Gone”) are among those who have taken his songs to great heights.
Join us at Country for Kids 2020 for an awesome night of country music all to support the programs and services of the Center for Child & Family Services. 100% of net proceeds benefit the Center for Child & Family Services, and Housing Development Corporation of Hampton Roads (HDCofHR) is joining CCFS as a community partner for this event.
