John King 2

Drive, paired with raw talent and business savvy took this young man out of a little mountain town in Georgia and into the spotlight opening for award-winning artists, writing number 1 songs, and touring over 150 dates a year.King grew up working with his hands, building work ethic as he built structures. “Those jobs made me who I am,” says John. “I started off working rock construction, putting in fireplaces, and walkways at about 14 or 15. Although it was tough, it built muscle and character.”Citing his parents as the main reason he got into music, John credits them for their influence. “They are the only reason why music was introduced at an early age.” John found himself in awe of one of country music’s greatest entertainers, Garth Brooks.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.”
