About Jon Langston   

Loganville, GA native, singer-songwriter Jon Langston grew up on music like his heroes Alan Jackson and the Eagles. And once multiple concussions ended his Division I football career, he worked to develop his own style and sound while drawing from that variety of influences. In 2013 with the release of his first song, “Forever Girl,” Jon’s live shows began to grow, and he found himself opening for Chase Rice at Georgia’s Kennesaw State University.  It was his first-ever full band show, and when the crowd sang “Forever Girl” along with him, Jon knew he wanted to pursue a career in music. Since then, the now 27-year-old Music City resident has not only signed a publishing deal with Sony ATV and is managed by KP Entertainment, but has fostered his own voice in country music and landed a record deal with Universal Music Group Nashville. The Georgia native is the first artist under Luke Bryan’s new label, 32 Bridge Entertainment, and will be worked in conjunction with EMI Records Nashville. He recently released his major label debut single “When It Comes To Loving You” which landed in the Top 5 of the all-genre iTunes Chart and has accumulated over 9 million streams.

Much Respect for Chris Janson’s ‘Drunk Girl.’

Some of the top themes in country music today include pick-up trucks, love, break-ups, and drinking. These are the songs that we all know and love. However, the subjects of these songs may subtly influence our decisions on the simple things like what brand of beer we should drink or whether we buy the F-150 or the Silverado. The theme of all songs in not so simple. ‘Drunk Girl’ tackles one of those more difficult subjects and it has the potential to impact how we start treating each other. As more people listen to ‘Drunk Girl,’ it is conceivable that we’ll see Chris Janson’s message in this song become the new normal.

Chris Janson debuted his powerful song ‘Drunk Girl’ on January 5th 2018. Despite the song title, which could leave one to believe otherwise, this piece was written about the respect that men should have for women. The lyrics leave a strong message: Take a drunk girl home. Let her sleep all alone. Leave her keys on the counter your number by her phone. Pick up her life she threw on the floor. Leave the hall lights on walk out and lock the door. That’s how she knows the difference between a boy and man. Take a drunk girl home. This could be one example of a more modern way of showing respect and caring for one another. Janson told PEOPLE that his new song is written “From a guy’s perspective, I think it’s a good message for any age man to treat women with respect.” The message isn’t lost among us females either. There are always ways that we can treat one another with respect and kindness.” Respecting one another is mutual. This is a song than not only men should listen to, but women should listen to as well. Women should expect a man to treat them this way.

‘Drunk Girl’ conveys a message of morality. Janson went on to tell PEOPLE “Do the right thing. Doing the right thing always ends up with a perfect outcome, and I would say that goes for guys and girls alike…You do the right thing; the right outcome always comes from it. You can always bet on that.” Such good advice and a good reminder to all of us. We should think before long and hard before we act. And even if the outcome doesn’t turn out as we planned, at least we know that the decision was the right one.

This song is a good reminder of how difficult it can be to make the right choices in life. Janson reported to Billboard Magazine that the song is “drawing tears from people’s eyes, and pulling stories from men and women alike who might not have had a voice or a platform to talk about it. It’s amazing. It’s cool to see songs bring emotions out in people.” It’s refreshing to see us open up and start to talk about our life situations because of this song. Kudos to Janson for taking a leap and broaching such a sensitive topic with this song.

Janson, Tom Douglas, and Scooter Carusoe penned ‘Drunk Girl.’ All three are fathers of daughters. As parents, we want to raise well-mannered, respectful, kind children. We can all strive to be more compassionate, better listeners, and better helpers. Let’s continue to do our best as parents to make the next generation polite and respectful people.

Chris Janson will be joining Cole Swindell and Lauren Alaina on the Reason to Drink tour.

Cole Swindell: ‘Break Up in the End’ Single Review

Newly released ‘Break Up in the End’ is the first single off of Cole Swindell’s upcoming third album. Swindell tweeted, “This is one of those songs from the first time I heard it I knew it was special.” It certainly is just that. Co-written by Jon Nite, Chase McGill, and Jessie Jo Dillon, ‘Break Up in the End’ has all the makings of a #1 hit. The lyrics are incredibly moving and heartfelt, hitting you right in the feels. The beautiful acoustic melody compliments the lyrics perfectly, and the guitar solo towards the end gives the song added life.

Anyone who has ever been in a complicated relationship, where the feelings aren’t mutual, can make a connection to the lyrics. It’s clear that this song strikes a chord with Cole Swindell. In an interview with iHeartCountry he explained, “It hit close to home I felt like. The first time I heard it, it just ripped my heart out almost and I was like I have to have this song.” You can hear the emotion in his voice as he passionately delivers the vocals. Cole sings about desperately wanting to make a relationship work, but ultimately he knows that it will never come to fruition. This is particularly evident in the lyrics, I’d introduce you to my mom and dad, say I think I love her when you leave that room, I’d still not take their advice when I say you’re moving in, even though we break up in the end. The lyrics go on to suggest that no matter how heartbreaking things are he would do it over and over, again and again because his love is so strong. This song is an absolute tearjerker, yet it has an amazing quality that makes you want to listen to it on repeat. When it’s all said and done, ‘Break Up in the End’ could be right up there with ‘You Should Be Here’ for the most special songs of Swindell’s career. If this first single is any indication, Cole Swindell’s next album is sure to be a smash hit.

Over the years Cole Swindell has served as an opener for many top-selling artists, but now he’s finally made it big on his own and deservedly so. Cole’s currently out on the road this spring on his first ever headlining tour with supporting acts Chris Janson and Lauren Alaina. You can see the only remaining New England stop on the Reason to Drink tour this Saturday, March 3rd at the Ryan Center on the campus of URI in Kingston, RI.

Favorite Lyrics: Even if I knew you’d be the one that got away, I’d still go back and get you. Even if I knew you’d be my best and worst mistake, oh I’d still make it with you.
