Drive, paired with raw talent and business savvy took award winning #1 songwriter and breakout country artist, John King, out of a little mountain town in Georgia and into the spotlight.
After moving to Nashville in 2014, King experienced his first #1 with a song he co-wrote called “We Went” recorded by artist Randy Houser. He received a 2016 ASCAP Songwriter Award for the song’s success.
As an artist, King draws inspiration from his parents, his college days, and megastars like Garth Brooks. As King puts it, “Entertaining a crowd, meeting the fans, hearing their stories, seeing them have the time of their lives…that is what God put me here to do…that’s my passion.” King strives to maintain his close personal connection with his fans by touring over 150 dates per year with artists such as Florida Georgia Line, Travis Tritt, and Scotty McCreery to name a few.
King’s current single as an artist, “Try Saying Goodbye” pulls from his storytelling prowess. It has already garnered more than 10 million streams on digital services since its January 2019 debut and is hitting country radio in August 2019. “With fresh melodies and lyrics mixed with old school believability, John King is a serious new artist you need to have on your playlists” stated CMT. One of Rolling Stone’s “10 Best Country Songs to Hear Now,” has been described by Tom Roland, of Billboard’s Makin’ Tracks, as “a de facto earworm that continues to connect.”
