Originally from Jackson, Tennessee, Jonathan Singleton’s gritty guitars and blues-saturated vocals draw heavily from his Western Tennessee roots, while the stories and lyrical craft are pure Music City. Singleton drove to Nashville every chance he could during college to write and network and eventually landed a publishing deal. He made the move to Music City and in 2009, founded a band called Jonathan Singleton & the Grove in which he sang lead vocals. They signed to Universal South Records in March 2009.
As a songwriter, Jonathan has written hits such as “Watching Airplanes” by Gary Allan, “Red Light” and “Let It Rain” by David Nail, “Why Don’t We Just Dance” by Josh Turner, and “Don’t” by Billy Currington. More recent singles include the #1 hit “A Guy Walks Into A Bar” by Tyler Farr, the top 5 Grammy-nominated hit “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools” by Tim McGraw, and the latest #1 smash, “Yours If You Want It” by Rascal Flatts. Other cuts include songs by Blake Shelton, Darius Rucker, Chris Young, Little Big Town, Ronnie Dunn and more. His latest independent album The Getaway can be found on iTunes.
