Jon Langston

Jon Langston is a former Division I football player who returned to his love of music after his sports career ended. Reteaching himself the guitar, he began posting his songs on YouTube, where he showcased his unique voice and songwriting.

Soon after Langston’s YouTube debut, he began selling out shows across the Southeast, including the famed Georgia Theatre in 2015. Other country stars have come to appreciate his style and, most recently, Luke Bryan added Langston to his ninth annual Farm Tour in 2017.

His most recent, self-titled album, Jon Langston, reached No. 25 on the Top Country Albums, No. 13 on Independent Albums, and No. 1 on the Heatseekers Albums lists.


MAX, a New York City-born pop-soul singer and songwriter, has developed a massive social following and garnered a number of awards. With nearly 1.5 million followers on YouTube, a global tour under his belt, and a number of hits already in his catalog, the 25-year-old viral sensation has developed a following dedicated to his charming, original voice and unique style.

More than just a pop musician, MAX has been featured in a Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign, performed on Broadway in "13", and acted on television. His hits "Gibberish" (21M views on YouTube) and "Lights Down Low" (22M views on YouTube) are proof that his label as an artist to watch is well-deserved and a guarantee that he’ll bring excitement to the Rock’n Redfest stage.
