NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE - MAY 16: Chris Janson performs during America Salutes You Presents: A Tribute To Billy Gibbons, A Live Benefit Concert at The Grand Ole Opry on May 16, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Chris Janson is one of the most distinctive voices and personalities in country music, but someone is trying to get away with imitating him. Not artistically, but on Facebook.

Janson’s team posted to his Facebook page: “Attention: Please DO not talk to anyone on here posing as Chris Janson. You will NOT get a DM from Chris, his team or anyone on Facebook. People are scamming, sending fake messages. Report & block immediately.”

It’s worth mentioning that artists (and their teams) very rarely reach out to fans on social media. If you get a DM that appears to be from an artist (or even an artist’s management team) you’d be wise to be suspicious about it. USA Today has an article about imposters on social media: check it out here.
