RENO, Nev. (April 25, 2019)— The Reno Rodeo and K-Bull 98.1 FM are kicking off the 100th-year celebration of the “Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West” in the Reno Rodeo Outdoor Arena on Wednesday, June 19 featuring country music’s hottest young artist Chris Janson and special guest Tyler Farr.

Janson began his career immediately following high school when he left Missouri to pursue music in Nashville, Tenn. Although he didn’t find immediate success, Janson found his passion for songwriting, penning compositions for stars like Lee Brice, Justin Moore and Tim McGraw.

Janson was propelled to stardom with the release of the summer party anthem, “Buy Me A Boat,” which peaked at No. 2 on the U.S. Country charts and bumped Janson’s debut-album to a No. 4 ranking on the U.S. Country Albums chart, and to No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100. His sophomore album, “Everybody,” produced his second number one hit single, “Fix A Drink” and earned him a CMA-nominated song with “Drunk Girl.” Janson’s breezy upbeat new song, “Good Vibes,” is the debut single from his forthcoming third studio album and is sure to get everybody on their feet.

Opening for Janson will be fellow Missouri native, Tyler Farr. Getting his start off the stage, Farr penned hits for the likes of Cole Swindell and Joe Nichols before releasing his debut album “Redneck Crazy.” With little fanfare, the album reached No. 2 on Billboard’s country album debut, yielding a pair of No. 1 hits in the title track and “Whiskey In My Water.”

Since his debut album, Farr has toured with the likes of Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Lee Brice, Jason Aldean, has played at dozens of festivals and has released another studio album that includes hits “A Guy Walks Into a Bar,” “Damn Good Friends,” “Better in Boots” and “C.O.U.N.T.R.Y.”
