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.
Though initially drawn to the drums after seeing his cousin play, Landon’s path began to change at 16. “I’d decided to focus on singing, and I purchased my first guitar from a buddy for $60. I couldn’t put it down. My grandfather taught me my first three chords, and I was hooked. I picked it up relatively quickly.” Around the same time, he started songwriting. “I’m not sure what it was, but I felt a need to write my own music. I didn’t want to do what everyone else had done. I was terrible at first… but I was passionate about it.” And for Landon, the obvious choice stylistically was country. “The older I got, the more I realized I was country. I’d been a Linkin Park fan, and dabbled in metal, but I inevitably went back to my country roots and began writing songs that told a story.”
In 2015, Landon moved to Nashville to chase his dream of writing and recording with some of the finest that country music has to offer. After four short weeks in Music City, he was approached by hit songwriter and Play It Again Publishing owner Dallas Davidson (Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan), who signed Landon almost immediately. The deal has lead to co-writes with Davidson, Craig Campbell and Chris Young, among others.
From there, his essence as an artist began to develop — and is something Landon is confident in.
“I love all the music that’s on the radio right now — there are obviously several different kinds of ‘country’. Ultimately, I feel I fall somewhere between Luke Bryan and Jon Pardi — I’m the tailgate version of Jon Pardi.”
This sound, as well as his growth as a writer, is evident in his current singles “A Little Bit” which dropped May 26th, and “When I Get There” which dropped on June 2nd. These up-tempo tunes, reminiscent of a 90’s country hit with a modern edge, provides listeners a glimpse into Landon’s upcoming EP, due out June 9th.
And of his sudden and seemingly effortless plunge into the country music scene, Landon’s well aware of his good fortune.
“I’m blessed, that’s for sure.”
