Chris Janson teams up with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the outdoorsy music video for his “rowdy” single, “Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get,” which premiered on Friday morning (April 19). The duo “spend an afternoon in the deer stand, muddin’ in a vintage Ford pick-up and enjoying some good ol’ Southern boy downtime,” reads a press release issued Friday to announce the video’s debut.

Janson said filming was “tons of genuine, real fun,” and from Tennessee to Texas, “we made it happen. Can’t thank DJ enough for starring in it, and for being a great friend to me.”

The Rock hailed Janson “a good, kind hearted man who works his butt off to take care of his family and take care of his fans,” he wrote in a caption on Instagram as he teased the music video on Thursday (April 18). He also posted a clip from the video set, noting that he and Janson both “had big country music dreams. One of us - thank God - goes on to become a big country music star and the other one goes on to become famous only for rocking a fanny pack and for singing in keys that don’t exist. Love ya brother and cheers to hard work and dreams that come true and an even bigger cheers to the dreams that don’t.”

“We bonded very quickly in a parking lot waiting for our cars to pull around – talking about one of our favorite country songs, ‘The Blues Man,’ from Hank Jr, and talking about the [Grand Ole Opry] and how we both were hanging out on lower (Broadway) in Nashville, looking for singing gigs, when I was 15 years old and he was in his 20’s sleeping in his car,” The Rock said in the press release issued Friday morning. “What really moved me in that parking lot was Chris’ kindness, humility, and just wanting to work hard to take care of his family. We both love country music, both love to fish, and both love to entertain and take care of our fans. Add a big shot of fun to the mix and all that made us fast friends and I’m pumped to be a part of his video, 'What You See Is What You Get.'”

Janson released “Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get” on March 8, following his televised performance at Dolly Parton’s Pet Gala, and his performance at the 2024 Country Radio Seminar (CRS) in Downtown Nashville, Tennessee. teamed up with Tyler HubbardRaeLynnBlake Hubbard and Jarrod Ingram to write the track, which was produced by Julian Raymond, according to a previously-issued press release. Janson said in a statement at that time that “this song is 100% authentic, every word. It’s fun, it’s rowdy and it’s the truth. Roll your window down and crank it up!”
