Singer-songwriter Langston on the rise

R

KRISTIN BARLOWE

aised on a hearty mix of family,
sports and faith, Jon Langston of
Loganville was just a few weeks
from graduating from college when he
made a decision that would change the
trajectory of his life.
This Georgia boy wanted to make
his dreams come true ... in Nashville.
"It took a lot of faith because I had
never been to Nashville," recalls Langston, who gave up his dream of a football career
after suffering a series of concussions in college. "I had to dig deep and have some
faith in God that he was going to show me the way and it was all going to be all right.
But yes, it was a very big leap."
That leap is paying off, as Langston is becoming one of country music's most
promising new singer-songwriters. And as fate would have it, a fellow Georgia native,
Luke Bryan, is helping him learn the ropes of what can be a tricky industry. Langston is
supporting Bryan on his Sunset Repeat Tour, running through October.
"Luke [Bryan] is just such a good big-brother figure and such a good mentor," says
Langston, the first artist signed to Bryan's new 32 Bridge Entertainment label.
"I'm proud about being from Georgia and the roots and the morals that come
along with that," says Langston, who recently released his new single, "Now You
Know," to radio. "That, along with how my parents raised me, is certainly going to help
me on the journey that lies ahead of me."
