The holidays are supposed to be a time of giving, charity, and kind acts – but some people didn’t take it to heart and did the exact opposite…
In the hours after performing several shows around the holidays at the famous Grand Ole Opry, one country star received some terrible news and took to social media to call on his fans and friends for help.
32-year-old Chris Janson posted a distressing message to Facebook that explained exactly what happened after he left that famous stage and spent time with his family for the holiday break.
According to his post, a treasured guitar he used while playing at the Grand Ole Opry was stolen from the car. The instrument, which was a one-of-a-kind custom Fender guitar, is a priceless part of his passion that he is desperately wanting to be returned.
Janson, who made his debut as host and member of the Grand Ole Opry on December 14th, 2018, has chartered a stellar career and received high praise over the last few years.
He’s released eight singles since 2010 and has scored three Top 10 chart-toppers in the last three years alone, and he’s only going up from here.
In the spirit of forgiving, Janson sent a message to whoever may have taken his guitar saying “And if by chance the thieves read this post, please know that I forgive, and will accept an apology and a return, with no repercussion.”
Clearly, the guitar means more to him than worrying about who lifted it from his car and we are hoping they take this opportunity to return it to him.
