Season Concert: John King
November 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Raised in the Appalachian foothills of northern Georgia, John, has been writing lyrics into his spiral-bound notebook and strumming them on an acoustic guitar since he was a kid. By 16 years old, he was writing multiple songs every week, often auditioning them for his friends around the campfire.
His steady climb toward the top of the country music charts, include a number 1 songwriter, penning Randy Houser’s chart-topping “We Went” earning him a 2016 ASCAP Songwriter Award as well as Hootie and The Blowfish’s “Rollin” (the band’s first song to be released since 2005). John plays an average of 150 shows annually while building his audience one gig at a time. Most importantly, King has begun telling his own story through music, launching his solo career with “Tonight Tonight” — a Top 40 hit whose anthemic chorus was heard everywhere from country radio to the weekly NFL recaps on CBS — and releasing his first full-length album with 2021’s Always Gonna Be You.
Call it a soundtrack to self-discovery. Call it a coming-of-age story, performed by a southern son whose country twang is matched by his pop hooks. Whatever the description, Always Gonna Be You is proof there’s a new King in town.
