About Jon Langston
Jon Langston takes the bold and the brash attitudes from classic ‘90s country and turbocharges his tunes with a 21st-century rock sound. Born in 1991 in small-town Georgia, Langston goes hard, which should come as no surprise—his college football career was cut short when his sixth concussion left him temporarily blind. Switching his focus swiftly to guitar, Langston released a couple of EPs—Young & Reckless and Runnin’ On Sunshine—in 2013. Armed with a booming, husky voice and big, blown-out riffs built for the arena circuit, Langston made an impression with driving tunes like “She’s so Georgia.” It’s not all headbanging in Langston’s world, but even his 2013 love song “Forever Girl”—with its heavy, dramatic piano and until-the-end-of-time pledge—keeps the intensity turned way up. Still, Langston’s style most frequently skews toward the big, bad, bumpin’ tailgate variety. His 2016 single “All Eyes on Us” uses overdriven, grungy guitar and rousing strings to drive its tale of ride-or-die love, and on 2019’s “Now You Know,” Langston draws from a classic country-rock vibe to lay out his blueprint, if you hadn’t figured it out already: He’s just a small-town boy, singing songs about the girl he loves, and ripping it up every chance he gets.
