Country artists dream of the day they'll get to play the Grand Ole Opry. For John King, it'll soon be a dream come true. While visiting our sister station WGNA, King was surprised with the great news that he'll be taking the Opry stage ... and of course he had to call his mom!
John King just needs some Labor Day love from his fans to put his debut single 'Tonight Tonight' into the ToC Showdown Hall of Fame. One more win and the country newcomer's hit will join some of the greatest songs of the past two years. He took care of Darius Rucker's latest earlier this week.
John King's fans burned past Blake Shelton's earlier this week, can they do the same to Darius Rucker's? 'Tonight, Tonight' is a three-time Showdown champion after knocking off 'Neon Light' on Monday and Tuesday. Today and tomorrow the love song will take on 'Homegrown Honey.'
Fans are loving John King! The country newcomer topped another Showdown competitor over the weekend. His debut single 'Tonight Tonight' breezed by the latest from Montgomery Gentry, setting up a song battle with one of the hottest men in country music.
Earlier this week it was a battle between country newcomers. John King's 'Tonight, Tonight' went up against the latest from country guitar-slinger Lindsay Ell, and after a close voting period the Georgia-raised singer came out on top. This weekend his competition will come with a much larger country fanbase.
Chris Young put a fourth song in the Showdown Hall of Fame earlier this week. 'Lonely Eyes' easily topped Brett Eldredge's 'Mean to Me' meaning two brand new songs will square off on Wednesday and Thursday. Two artists looking for their first hit will do battle with songs already catching on at country radio.
John King's 'Tonight Tonight' is everything we love about new country music - a great hook over a strong beat sung by a solid voice - and this country newcomer isn't too bad to look at, either! King solidly follows in the footsteps of many of our favorite country hitmakers, unveiling a debut single that is fun and catchy and will immediately have you hitting repeat for a second listen.
