In a short time, King has been making a name for himself in Country Music. John's debut radio single, “Tonight Tonight,” earned him his first Top 40 hit and was heard by millions of NFL fans and used to highlight CBS network’s Thursday night football throughout the 2014 season.
In addition to his rising success as an artist, King is also earning national recognition as a songwriter. In early 2016, King experienced his first #1 with a song called “We Went” recorded by artist Randy Houser. King co-wrote the song with friends, Matt Rogers and Justin Wilson and received a 2016 ASCAP Songwriter Award for the song's success. King has gone on to write songs for some of Country’s biggest stars.
John continues touring countless dates building his fanbase and in late 2016, signed his first management deal with Narvel Blackstock and Starstruck Entertainment. Narvel has been instrumental in the rise of Superstars like Reba, Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson. In late 2017, King released the single "I Still Pick Up" from his latest project. The song debuted Top 5 on the Apple Music Hot Chart and has already gained over 1 million streams. The music video recently debuted on CMT and was voted Top 10 on the countdown.
King’s recent releases “Heat Wave” and “Never Wanna Be” both debuted on Spotify’s “New Boots” playlist and gained over 3 million cumulative streams. In April of 2018, King signed a major publishing deal with Sony/ATV Nashville. He is currently scheduled for a 2019 tour and just released “Try Saying Goodbye”, the debut single from a new project. It was named one of Rolling Stone’s Top 10 Country Songs, earning features from Billboard, Amazon, CMT, Whiskey Riff, Taste of Country and more. It was also featured on Apple Music’s “Best of the Week”, “Breaking Country” and “Broken Down” Playlists. Spotify also is currently featuring the song on their 6 million listener playlist "Hot Country", gaining King over 500k listeners in the last month. It is also featured on “New Boots”, “Wild Country” and “New from Nashville” Playlists.
