Rising country singer-songwriter, Jon Langston released a new song, “Happy Ever After,” available now, October 30th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
The term “happily ever after” is most commonly used at the end of a story when two people fall in love and get married. However, the songwriters, Langston, Blake Bollinger, and Brent Anderson, mislead the listener and use the fun, play on words to explain a man’s new feelings about his past relationship. Back in February, Langston released “Drinks,” a song that describes a scenario where the guy is taking the breakup much harder than the girl.
Now, almost eight months later, the man is finally back on his feet. Although he has not made a full-time commitment to that special someone like in the fairy tales, he learns from his buddies and other good-looking women at the bar that he is “happy ever after her.” The steel guitar and Langston’s raspy, southern vocals make this an enjoyable, drinking tune with a classic-country twist.
“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”
Although Langston co-wrote this song, it certainly does not represent Langston’s current situation, as he and his girlfriend welcomed their first child, Magnolia Mae to the world over the weekend. A big congratulations to the new parents!
