• As CRS was getting underway in Nashville this week, the Warner Music Nashville crew was out in full force on Monday evening as Chris Janson joined a bunch of radio friends and industry guests at Legends Corner, just before his sold-out headlining performance at the iconic Ryman Auditorium. Janson’s 90-minute set concluded with a special appearance from country superstar Keith Urban, who helped make one of Janson’s career dreams a reality — an invitation to become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry.
