About Jon Langston:
The epitome of a grass-roots country star, 32 Bridge Entertainment/EMI Records Nashville talent Jon Langston gives new credence to the 10-year, 10,000-hour rule of mastering one’s craft. Arriving with a Gold-certified splash via the homespun, lost-in-love ballad “Forever Girl” in 2013 – the first song he ever wrote – Langston has spent the ensuing decade on a mission to grow as both an artist and man, working with some of the genre’s modern icons. A Georgia native schooled on ‘90s-country heroes like Alan Jackson, plus classic rock, Southern rap, R&B and more, his efforts have produced three EPs, a No. 1 all-genre iTunes debut (“When It Comes To Loving You”) and more than half a billion global streams – plus a 2022 Grand Ole Opry debut, sold-out headline shows and a spot on mentor Luke Bryan’s annual tour. Wielding a warm vocal buzz drenched in raspy Southern soul, and a modern-country sound blending warmth with in-the-moment muscle, Langston’s long-awaited debut album, Heart On Ice, is set for a September 8th release, marking his next step from open mics to country’s elite. Featuring 14 songs – 11 of which he co-wrote – and produced by Jody Stevens, Jacob Rice and Brad Wagner, the concept album infuses his country-radio roots with a fresh electricity, and adds a bold sense of maturity to the singer-songwriter’s catalog of party anthems and ballads built on a wounded-but-still-beating heart. Early releases like “Whiskey Does” and “Ain’t No Cowboy” proved his knack for a romantic hook has only sharpened since “Forever Girl,” while “Heart On Ice” serves as a showcase of the intention Langston brings to both music and life – and a hint toward deep-feeling hits yet to come. Now savoring life like a glass of top-shelf bourbon – and making country music with the same barrel-aged patience – Langston is currently featured on Luke Bryan’s Country On Tour, and can be found headlining shows across the nation.
