The vulnerable love song, Try Missing You by rising country star, Jon Langston is our Song of the Day! Jon co-wrote the track with his producer, Jody Stevens, whom he co-wrote his breakout single, When It Comes To Loving You off his six-track Now You Know EP, released in 2019.
He says, “Try Missing You is more to me than just a song. It shows my heart and who I am. This song is my baby and I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to release it. It’s my favourite song I’ve ever released by far!”
Jon grew up in Loganville, Georgia, listening to music by his heroes Alan Jackson and the Eagles. He played football, eventually earning a Division 1 college football scholarship. He always thought football would a part of his life, but after his sixth concussion left him blind for fifteen minutes, his football career ended abruptly. So, he picked up his guitar which he hadn’t touched since the eighth grade and re-taught himself how to play.
Playing open mic nights and working on his songwriting eventually lead to the 2013 release of self-penned, Forever Girl, the first song he ever wrote. That release kicked off his music career which has culminated in sold out shows across the country and over 500 million career streams.
That same year, he was the opening act for Chase Rice and released his debut EP, Runnin On Sunshine. Both his 2015 follow-up EPs, Showtime and self-titled, hit the US Country Albums and Independent Albums charts. In 2016, he also featured on the song Yung and Dum by US metalcore band, issues from their album, Headspace.
Jon opened for Luke Bryan on his Farm Tour in 2017, which was a full circle moment having attended as a spectator of the Farm Tour only a few years before in Athens, Georgia. He was invited to perform on the tour again in 2018 and joined Luke in support of his Sunset Repeat Tour in 2019.
Jon signed a publishing deal with Sony ATV, management with KP Entertainment, and is the first artist signed under Luke Bryan’s new Label 32 Bridge Entertainment with EMI Records Nashville. His debut major label single, When It Comes To Loving You reached #1 on the all-genre iTunes Chart. His follow up single, Now You Know, reached the Top 30 on the radio charts.
