Hey everyone,

I’ve been super-busy, travelling, writing and recording new music for myself and other artists. Stay tuned for a new single from me early fall 2019!

Big thanks to everyone who continues to listen to my music and come out to my shows!

You can order physical CDs or the digital versions by clicking on the tabs next to the album cover(s). I’m always happy to sign CDs before I put them in the mail. Just hit me up on social media right after you make your purchase!

Please take a minute and follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep in touch. You can always email me if you have any questions…or just want to say hello.
Thanks for stopping by,

“Can’t Remember Never Loving You”, co-written by Ian Janes and Byron Hill, was featured in the 2017 mid-season finale of the CMT TV show “Nashville”.

In March of 2017, CMT’s “Nashville” closed it’s ‘mid-season finale’ with Ian’s song “Can’t Remember Never Loving You” as performed by the show’s two stars, Charles ‘Deacon’ Esten and Connie ‘Rayna” Britton. The song was co-written with veteran Nashville songwriter Byron Hill (George Straight, George Jones, Ray Charles, Dionne Warwick).
