“The Opry is such a sacred place and stands for everything country music is,” shares Langston. “I’m honored to be able to step into that circle, just like my heroes have before me.”

The Georgia native is currently in the midst of his All Good Out Here Tour with upcoming home state stops this weekend in Tifton, GA (1/21) and Franklin, GA (1/22).

Fans can visit Langston’s official website for a full list of tour dates.

The singer/songwriter is expected to share new music soon, following the release of his tracks “Try Missing You” and “When You’re Lonely.” 

Langston brought the emotional song to life in a new music video, released in November. Directed by Roger Pistole, the seemingly autobiographical clip follows Langston’s life on the road as he goes from show to show missing the ones who mean the most to him. Langston eventually makes it home to his girlfriend, Sonia, and their daughter, Magnolia Mae, who greet him with smiles as he returns from the road. 

“I don’t know where I’m gonna be tomorrow / Truth is I’m a little lost right now / The smoke and whiskey, it don’t fix me / Like you always do / If you think you’re missing me, try missing you,” Langston sings throughout the chorus of the song, which he wrote with Jody Stevens.
