Jon Langston tips a few back to forget his ex in his just-released breakup anthem, “Happy Ever After.”
The Georgia native co-wrote the rowdy tune alongside Blake Bollinger and Brent Anderson and drew upon personal experience in the writing room.
“‘Happy Ever After’ is a fun breakup song. It was inspired by a past relationship,” Langston explains to Country Now. I finally realized I didn’t have to be so down on myself, and I could move on.”
The song finds Langston reflecting on his ex and all the ways she did him wrong. Once he comes to terms with the fact that life must go on, he seeks out his “Happy Ever After” at his local watering hole.
“I’m kicked back with a cold one in my hand/ I gotta redneck soakin’ up a neon tan/ Brunette that I just met with me, she just kissed me/ And whoa, it just hit me like/ I never thought I’d be this better off/ Throwing back these double black label shots/ In a honky tonk heaven on earth/ Here’s to happy ever after her,” Langston sings on the chorus.
The rising star previously previewed the song during his live show and it became an instant fan-favorite.
