Jonathan Singleton Preps The Getaway As New Indie Solo Album Release
Jonathan Singleton earned a good deal of radio play in the late 2000s, both as the frontman for his own project, appropriately named Jonathan Singleton and the Grove, but also as a songwriter who penned a number of Top Ten hits for other rising country music performers. His first big break came in 2007, when "Watching Airplanes," performed by Gary Allan, shot to number two on the Billboard Country Chart. Over the next few years, Singleton wrote and co-wrote several more songs that burst onto the charts, among them "Red Light" (David Nail), "Don't" (Billy Currington), and "Why Don't We Just Dance" (Josh Turner), which debuted at number five on the U.S. Billboard 200. The singles released by JS&TG only dented the charts and after an EP was released in 2010, Sony/Universal released him from his contract.
But just signed to a new publishing deal with Big Machine Records, Singleton has a brand new solo album in the works that will be released by the end of this year called The Getaway. There's no formal release date as of yet.
