Chris Janson’s ‘Real Friends’ Features Blake Shelton Collaboration
As the release date for Chris Janson's impending new studio album, Real Friends, gets closer. we are learning more details about what the record looks like. Appropriately enough, the project's title track gets an assist from a guest star who is a real-life "real friend" of the singer's.
Janson had previously shared that Real Friends will include 13 tracks but now we know what those songs are and who the signer collaborated with. In addition to writing a collection of notable songwriters including Ashley Gorley, Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip, Janson sings with Blake Shelton on the title track.
With his latest batch of songs, Janson values the power of friendship and appreciates the relationship he has with his fans more than ever. Fittingly, Janson decided to honor that bond by titling the new project Real Friends. After all, friendship played a big part in the making of these new songs, too. "I made Real Friends with actual real friends. I produced the album with real friends, wrote all the songs with real friends, took all the photos for the project with my best friend and wife, Kelly," Janson explains in a press release.
