Rising Nashville star Jon Langston plays tribute to one of his musical heroes with his cover of Alan Jackson’s 90s hit single ‘Don’t Rock the Jukebox’.

Like Jackson, Langston also hails from George and cites Jackson not only as one of his childhood heroes but one of his biggest musical inspirations.

“When I was a kid, my granddaddy gave me my first country CD, Who I Am by Alan Jackson,” recalled Langston. “Alan Jackson is the reason I fell in love with country music.”

To mark the anniversary of the original single topping the charts at No.1 on 6 July 1991, Langston also released an official music video for the tribute cover.

Langston and his band do a faithful acoustic rendition of the honky tonk hit, with some skilful solos and expert fretwork. Just as Jackson made strides as one of the leading new traditionalists of Nashville, Langston is one of most exciting new faces in Nashville, adding a gritty blues flavour to Top 40 country.

Growing up in Loganville, Georgia, just an hour from Alan’s hometown of Newnan, Langston wears his musical influences on his sleeve, and honed his songwriting skills under the guidance of his mentor Rhett Atkins.

Langston also debuted the official music video for his hit single ‘Dance Tonight’ on 26 June that’s quickly become a fan favourite during his live sets. Langston is currently on the road with Luke Bryan as part of his Sunset Repeat Tour, and just released his new single, ‘Now You Know’.

It was only six years ago that Langston was just a 20-something fan, watching Bryan’s show at his Farm Tour stop in Athens, Georgia. Now the 28-year-old singer-songwriter is opening the show and made Rolling Stone’s ‘10 New Country and Americana Artists You Need to Know’ this year.
