‘Tonight Tonight’ singer John King takes center stage at Bayou Theater
News Release
Friday, October 19, 2018

HOUSTON — It’s a good thing John King grew up working rock construction jobs. Because his ultimate goal was to become a country music singer, he credits that work with instilling the work ethic he needed to fight for the career he wanted. He will share the country music that inspires and moves him with music fans at the Bayou Theater at University of Houston-Clear Lake on Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

King’s debut radio single, “Tonight Tonight” earned him his first Top 40 hit and was the theme song for CBS “Thursday Night Football” in 2014. “That was a huge confidence boost and from that point, my career met with what I would call success,” he said. “It was all a positive flow after that. It’s an anthemic song and it’s great for sporting events. It really took off for us.”

He advises his Bayou Theater audience to get ready for a high energy show. “I move around a lot, like Garth Brooks and Kenny Chesney,” he said. “I like to interact with the audience. I really don’t want you sitting down.”

Alongside his three bandmates, including his 24-year-old brother Andrew on drums, King will perform original compositions, including “Tonight Tonight” as well as his newly-released single, “Heat Wave.”

“I like to write about my real-life experiences with my family and I draw a lot of inspiration from my fairy tale love story with my wife, whom I have known since I was 15,” he said. “I let all that carry over into the audience.”
