Jon Langston

Bio

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 HITS THE TOP OF THE COUNTRY CHART WITH “WHAT SHE WANTS TONIGHT.”

Luke Bryan has just scored his 24th No. 1 single with his latest smash, “What She Wants Tonight.” The song, written by Luke, Ross Copperman, Hillary Lindsey and Jon Nite and produced by Jeff and Jody Stevens, is the follow up to Luke’s No. 1 single “Knockin’ Boots” and is the second release from his upcoming studio album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here, due out later this year.

Luke says he was really excited about the “infectious” song as it was coming together. “Ross came in, and he had the track and that drum loop in the front kind of dialed in, and the second I heard it, it was just really, really infectious. And then we were able to just really put a really great lyric (together) with a high energy track. When we came up with the hook – ‘She gets what she wants/and I get to be what she wants tonight,’ I was just, it just felt like something that could be played on the radio and it felt like something like that’s what women want to hear. They want to have a confident guy kind of singing to them in that way, and I hadn’t been this excited about a song in some time.”

Luke Bryan (What She Wants Tonight writing) OC: …in some time. :47
“‘What She Wants Tonight’ is a song that I wrote at my house with Jon Nite, Ross Copperman and Hillary Lindsey, and I’ve been wanting to get together and write with all of them for some time now. Ross came in, and he had the track and that drum loop in the front kind of dialed in, and the second I heard it, it was just really, really infectious. And then we were able to just really put a really great lyric (together) with a high energy track. When we came up with the hook – ‘She gets what she wants/and I get to be what she wants tonight,’ I was just, it just felt like something that could be played on the radio and it felt like something like that’s what women want to hear.
