Singer-songwriter Jon Langston has signed a record deal with Universal Music Group Nashville and 32 Bridge Entertainment, and has released his debut single “When It Comes To Loving You.” The Georgia native is the first artist under Luke Bryan’s new label with UMG Nashville, 32 Bridge Entertainment and will be worked in conjunction with EMI Records Nashville.

“When It Comes To Loving You,” which Langston co-wrote with Dan Isbell and was produced by Jody Stevens, is a soulful song that tells the heartfelt story of a young man illustrating his favorite memories, and yet none of them compare to the moments spent with the girl he loves.

In 2013, Langston released “Forever Girl” on YouTube, the first song he ever wrote by himself. That release kicked off his music career which has culminated in 15 sold out shows this year and 160 million career streams.


Logan Ledger Signs With Rounder Records

Logan Ledger

T Bone Burnett‘s Electro Magnetic Recordings has announced its artist Logan Ledger has signed to Rounder Records.

Ledger is in the studio with T. Bone Burnett, who is producing his debut album, slated for release in 2019. He will preview material from the project on Friday, Sept. 14 at the Mercy Lounge during AmericanaFest in Nashville.

Californian native, Ledger came to music fairly early: he began singing as a young child and started playing old-time and bluegrass music on guitar at age 12. Enamored of early roots music recordings of Appalachian ballads and string bands from the 1930s, he soon discovered the music of Hank Williams and George Jones—he describes it as “a bomb going off in my mind”—and devoted himself wholeheartedly to learning all he could about country music.

After college, he briefly returned to the Bay Area where he played with a bluegrass band, but quickly realized the need to move to Nashville. In Music City he threw himself into writing and performing.
