Jon Langston
Jon Langston
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. Langston, now 24 years old, has a publishing deal with Sony ATV, and is managed by KP Entertainment.
John King
John King
Drive, paired with raw talent and business savvy took this young man out of a little mountain town in Georgia and into the spotlight opening for award-winning artists, writing number 1 songs, and touring over 150 dates a year.

King grew up working with his hands, building work ethic as he built structures. “Those jobs made me who I am,” says John. “I started off working rock construction, putting in fireplaces, and walkways at about 14 or 15. Although it was tough, it built muscle and character.”

Citing his parents as the main reason he got into music, John credits them for their influence. “They are the only reason why music was introduced at an early age.” John’s musical tastes were formed early on by the southern rock sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and The Black Crowes. As country music took a huge leap forward in the 1990s, John found himself in awe of one of country music’s greatest entertainers, Garth Brooks.

When it comes to the fans, the bar is set high according to John. “I love the way Garth treats his fans like royalty.. I wanna be like that… If you’ve made a long career in country music it’s because your fans love you.” As King puts it, “Entertaining a crowd, meeting the fans, hearing their stories, seeing them have the time of their lives.. That is what God put me here to do.. that’s my passion.”

John took serious interest in guitar when he realized he could figure out how to play his favorite songs, but then went on to modify them. “That’s when I realized that I could write my own music. I started by playing familiar melodies and turning them into funny songs with lyrics about my friends.” Once John settled into the position of lead singer, his voice began to change the sound of the band. “Our early bands were rock bands but my voice was country. I grew up country, I talked country, and I wrote country songs.”

After graduating high school, John decided to arm himself with a music degree and went to study at the University of Georgia. It was during his time at UGA that the formation of John’s musical footprint would really take shape. John’s music career was in full developmental swing during his time at Georgia. “My time at UGA helped me tremendously,” John said with a very serious tone. “It made me realize I could make a career out of doing what I love.”

His dedication and tenacity paid off in opening slots for nationally recognized, award-winning artists-a feat that is virtually unheard of for a young, unsigned artist. This tenacity caught the attention of world renowned booking agent Kevin Neal (Jason Aldean, FGL, Cole Swindell), who signed John to WME Booking Agency in 2013.

In a short time, King has been making a name for himself in Country Music. John's debut radio single, “Tonight Tonight,” earned him his first Top 40 hit and was heard by millions of NFL fans and used to highlight CBS network’s Thursday night football throughout the 2014 season.

In addition to his rising success as an artist, King is also earning national recognition as a songwriter. In early 2016, King experienced his first #1 with a song called “We Went” recorded by artist Randy Houser. King co wrote the song with friends, Matt Rogers and Justin Wilson and received a 2016 ASCAP Songwriter Award for the song's success. King also had a hand in writing Craig Morgan’s current single, “I’ll Be Home Soon.”

John continues touring countless dates building his fanbase and in late 2016, signed his first management deal with Narvel Blackstock and Starstruck Entertainment. Narvel has been instrumental in the rise of Superstars like Reba, Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson. In late 2017, King released the single "I Still Pick Up" from his latest project. The song debuted Top 5 on the Apple Music Hot Chart and has already gained over 1 million streams in a short time. The music video is set to air on CMT and GAC in early 2018.
