    “It’s our 10th anniversary of the Farm Tour. We’ve been able to have a lot of amazing memories and we’ve been able to give some scholarships to kids through the Farm Tour. You know, there’s nothing better than watching 15, 20,000 people in a hayfield have fun and listen to country music.”

    “We’ve laid out of Georgia a couple of years, and my Georgia crowd they were not happy about that, so we finally got one back in Ringgold. We’ve got Chase Rice out, we’ve got the Peach Pickers and we’ve got Jon Langston on all the shows. And yeah, we’re doing the first one ever in Ohio. We’re in Illinois this year. We’re in Iowa, and then we’re down in Florida also. So, we do Florida, North Augusta in South Carolina and then we do Georgia. So, we kinda got the Southeast handled, and we got the Midwest handled. So, we like to just spread ‘em around and we may lay out of Iowa one year and then go down to Nebraska. We just kinda keep it fun. We did eight shows a year for a long time, and we learned that was a lot of work and I didn’t really sound good on the last, on the eighth, the seventh and eighth show I was pretty tired. So, we just trimmed it back to six, and it makes it fun and fresh and we love the Farm Tour every year.”

  • NEWCOMER JON LANGSTON GOT A LITTLE “FREAKED OUT” WHEN HE HEARD HIS DEBUT SINGLE ON THE RADIO FOR THE FIRST TIME.

    Newcomer Jon Langston is experiencing a lot of firsts lately, including releasing his first single — “When It Comes to Loving You” — on a major record label. When he heard it on the radio for the first time, he went a little crazy.

    “Hearing my single on the radio for the first time was surreal. It was a dream come true,” says Jon, who co-wrote the tune with Dan Isbell. “I was in a van with my whole band, and I was listening to an interview and they said, ‘Here’s his debut single ‘When It Comes to Loving You’,’ and I freaked out. I had no idea they were going to play it, and it was a full circle moment and something I’ll never forget.”

     

    The Georgia native will open Luke Bryan’s 2018 Farm Tour beginning Thursday (September 27th) in Irwin, Ohio. He’ll follow up those dates with his own Prob’ly at a Bar Tour October 12th in Indianapolis, Indiana.

  • JON LANGSTON RELEASES HIS DEBUT SINGLE.

    Jon Langston just released his debut single, “When It Comes to Loving You.” It’s the first release under Luke Bryan’s new imprint 32 Bridge Entertainment in conjunction with Universal Music Group’s own EMI Nashville.

    Jon co-wrote the tune after hearing a guitar lick one of his friends was noodling around with one day. “He always had this bluesy guitar lick he was always messing around with, and we write all the time and one day I finally had a title to fit that kind of vibe he was always messing around with,” says Jon. “And we sat down and had a title called ‘When It Comes to Loving You,’ and we hashed it out in about an hour and a half. It just came natural, and we just wrote real life situations and stuff. It was just kind of magic the way it all came together.”

    You can catch Jon on his Prob’ly at a Bar Tour or on Luke Bryan’s Farm Tour 2018, which kicks off September 27th in Irwin, Ohio.

    Audio / Jon Langston says it took less than two hours to write his debut single, “When It Comes to Loving You.”
