Chris Janson spent some time at the U.S. Marine barracks in Washington, D.C., where he hosted a mini concert for the troops. During his set, Chris performed “Our World” featured on his latest album, Everybody, and a new song titled “Soul In Your Country,” which he co-wrote last week as a tribute to our nation’s military.
“Words have no comparison, to the humility I felt, standing in front of a full room of Marines and Navy,” Chris says in a statement. “There’s no way to really prepare for that moment, until you’re there. The men and women who provide us the luxury and privilege of living in freedom, every single day. An overwhelming amount of love and gratitude mutually filled the room. It will go down as one of the most impactful days of my life.”
Chris was joined by the U.S. Marine Band and the U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters as part of his performance, which will air on the Hallmark Channel on July 4th at 8 p.m. ET. The concert was hosted by National Park Service and National Park Foundation.

In addition to taking part in singing for the U.S. Marines, Chris will perform in Nashville on July 4 as part of Music City’s annual Let Freedom Sing! concert at 7 p.m. The “Drunk Girl” singer’s set will likely include his previous two chart-topping singles, “Fix A Drink” and “Buy Me a Boat.”
Chris is the newest member inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. The singer was officially inducted into the hallowed institution on March 20 by Garth Brooks.
“To know me is to know I really, truly love the Grand Ole Opry,” Chris said during his induction. “This will be a moment I will never forget. Thanks for making my dreams come true, and thanks for buying a ticket to the Opry to see it happen!”
