During his early teens, Jon Langston took the first step on a path that would indirectly lead to a music career. At that time, music was more of a fun hobby for Langston and his friends. Langston aspired to enter the world of sports and attended Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina on a football scholarship. However, Langston suffered several concussions during his college football run.
This obstacle presented a new opportunity, as Langston learned to play the guitar, began writing songs and relocated to Nashville. Since entering the music world, he has released a steady flow of EPs and singles.
In the tradition of artists such as Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, Langston’s arrangements are a skillful combination of modern country and pop rock, but he uses his vocal mix of smooth country baritone and edgy rock tenor to create his own sound.
During the past year, Langston gave his fans three new singles — “When it Comes to Loving You,” “Right Girl Wrong Time” and “Prob’ly at a Bar” — demonstrating his knack for emotional country ballads accented by his unique, down-home crooning style.
