Chris Janson didn’t have an enjoyable start to his holiday season. Following a recent performance at the Grand Ole Opry, the singer’s guitar was stolen out of his car. He shared a photo of his beloved Fender guitar with fans on Facebook in hopes that someone will find it and return it.

“Over the Holiday break, my custom @Fender guitar (shown in photo below) was stolen out of the car, after playing the Opry,” Chris captions a post on Facebook. “If ANYone sees or hears about it, please notify local PD and ME! Thanks y’all.”

He went on to assert that he simply wants his guitar back, no questions or repercussions.

“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,” he adds.

While the end to 2018 was mired with the loss of his guitar, the majority of Chris’ year was a successful one as he launched his first headlining tour, the Waitin’ On 5 Tour, and was invited to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

In March, Chris was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry by Garth Brooks. Chris accepted the honor through tears, and thanked his family and friends for supporting him over his 13 year career.

“How do you not cry on a night like this?” Chris said to the cheering crowd. “To know me is to know I really, truly love the Grand Ole Opry. This will be a moment I will never forget. Thanks for making my dreams come true, and thanks for buying a ticket to the Opry to see it happen! I hope you come back a million times! I’ll buy the ticket for ya. I don’t even care. I love you that much!”
