John King

Date: January 26, 2019 Time: 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Event Description Driven to do what he loves, John King left a small mountain town in Georgia to write number 1 songs, tour across the US, and open for award-winning artists. Murphy Arts District (MAD) is pleased to announce that King will perform in the Griffin Restaurant on Saturday evening, January 26th, 2019 at 8:00 PM. Early Bird tickets are $15 until December 31st, $20 from January 1st through January 25th, and $30 on the day of the show. MAD members may purchase tickets starting Monday, December 17th. The general public may purchase tickets starting Tuesday, December 18th. In a short time, King has been making a name for himself in Country music. His 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. As a songwriter King landed his first #1 song in 2016 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 also had a hand in writing Craig Morgan’s current single, “I’ll Be Home Soon.” King 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 in a short time. The music video was recently voted Top 10 on the CMT countdown. John took serious interest in guitar when he realized he could figure out how to play his favorite songs, but then went on to modify them. “That’s when I realized that I could write my own music. I started by playing familiar melodies and turning them into funny songs with lyrics about my friends.” Once John settled into the position of lead singer, his voice began to change the sound of the band. “Our early bands were rock bands but my voice was country. I grew up country, I talked country, and I wrote country songs.” When it comes to the fans, the bar is set high according to John. “I love the way Garth treats his fans like royalty…I wanna be like that… If you’ve made a long career in country music, it’s because your fans love you.” 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.”
