Jon Langston is coming to Des Moines for a show at Wooly’s on Thursday, July 30th!
A native of Loganville, GA, Langston grew up the oldest of three boys and was an early fan of Alan Jackson and the Eagles.
He was also a promising athlete. He was named All-State in high school and even earned a Division I football scholarship from Gardner-Webb, but had his football career cut short after a concussion left him blind for 15 minutes during his junior year.
Langston then moved on to playing the guitar, something he hadn’t done since 8th grade. After playing open mic nights and working on his song writing, his song ‘Forever Girl’ was released and helped his career take off.
One of his early gigs including opening for Chase Rice in Georgia and his EP ‘ Runnin’ on Sunshine’ was released on May 5, 2015 with Treehouse Records.
His career has consisted of 15 sold out shows and over 500 million career streams.
He opened for Luke Bryan on his Farm Tour in 2017 and was also invited back on the tour again in 2018 and in 2019 for the Sunset Repeat Tour. He then became the first artist signed under Bryan’s new label, 32 Bridge Entertaiment with EMI Records Nashville.
This is when he released ‘When it Comes to Loving You and his new EP, ‘Now You Know’, which came out on October 25th of last year.
Make sure you are in attendance to hear all of his great hits and see a big up and comer in country music.
