Are you ready?! Country meets classic rock in the next installment of Jesuit’s unforgettable Homecoming Concert celebration. This year’s performance will be co-headlined by break-out country star Chris Janson and the legendary pop/rock super-group, Starship featuring Mickey Thomas.
Janson has been racking up the accolades since bursting onto the country music scene, with his high-octane live shows drawing rave reviews from the likes of CMT as well as Rolling Stone and People magazines. The award-winning singer/songwriter most recently took home the trophy for Academy Country Music Video of the Year for his inspiring, Gold-certified hit, “Drunk Girl,” which also earned Song of the Year plaudits at the 2018 MusicRow Awards. Additionally, the chart-topping, double-Platinum smash, “Buy Me a Boat,” was named the iHeartRadio Music Awards Country Song of the Year.
Rolling Stone has declared Janson “a live legacy in the making,” but if that wasn’t enough to spark your excitement, the soaring voice that propelled Starship to over 20 Billboard Top 100 Hits ensures that Homecoming 2019 will be a year to remember. Starship’s amazing string of hits include three No. 1 smash singles, while every album released since 1979 has gone Gold, Platinum, or Multi-Platinum. The Oscar-nominated and award-winning group made a name as one of the most iconic arena rock acts of the 1980s.
