Georgia native Jon Langston has always had a love for music of all kinds, but has not always pursued a career in the music industry. Even though he had a band in 8th grade with a few hometown buddies, it was nothing more than just a fun hobby for Langston at the time. The band which included long time friend, Josh Manuel, who co-produced Langston’s first two EP’s back in 2013 at Century Studios in Atlanta. Manuel is currently the drummer for the band “Issues.” Instead, Langston set his sights on playing football in high school and earned a Division I scholarship to play at Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina in 2009. It was his junior year of college when he picked the guitar up again. “I suffered multiple concussions, and so the coaches, doctors and myself decided the best for my health was to hang up the pads,” Langston says. “It was hard but I knew it was the right thing to do. I didn’t know what God had planned for my life at the time.” Langston began to learn how to play the guitar again and began to write his own songs and posting them on YouTube. “It is crazy how God closes one door and opens another. I had no idea what was ahead of me with the whole music world.”
Since then Langston has shown a passion and love for country music, and his unique voice and songwriting have sparked a wildfire fan base across the country. Selling out shows across the southeast, including the huge accomplishment at the Georgia Theatre on Nov. 7, 2015, dreams are starting to come true for Langston. “To be given the opportunity to not only play on that stage, but to headline the theatre, where I’ve seen many acts perform such as: Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert, and Corey Smith, who are guys I look up to, it was an honor and a night I will never forget.”
Langston, now a Music City resident in Nashville, TN, has created his own style and sound from a variety of influences. Growing up listening to everything from Alan Jackson to the Eagles, Langston has crafted a fresh, new country music sound that is ready for take off.
Luke Bryan just released his brand new single, “Waves,” this morning (April 9th). The song, written by Zach Crowell, Ryan Hurd and Chase McGill, is featured on the deluxe edition of his album, BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE, which is available today.
He immediately gravitated toward the song the moment he heard it. “’Waves’ is a song about kids falling in love during the summer and just all the images and everything about just how beautiful that summer love is and how the emotions just keep coming in waves,” he says. “‘Waves’ is kind of a play on words, and I feel in love with the song the second I heard it.”
BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE was originally set to release last April, but due to the pandemic the project was moved to August and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, making it Luke’s sixth consecutive appearance in the top position. The album became his eleventh top 10 album on Billboard’s Top 200 since his first appearance with 2009’s DOIN’ MY THING.
The album contains his current smash single “Down To One” as well as four No. 1 hits so far- “Knockin’ Boots,” “What She Wants Tonight,” “One Margarita” and “Down To One,” which landed as Luke’s 26th career #1 single.
