An Interview With Ryan Langdon and His New Single "Lit in the Sticks"
Canadian singer Ryan Langdon is perhaps most known for his song “Leave Me Right,” a catchy tune about not dragging out the end of a relationship. It’s the kind of song and the kind of sound that leaves a person wondering why he isn’t already well-established on the radio. His new single “Lit in the Sticks” also showcases the smooth quality of his voice. It is a party song with a rockin’ beat, but the first thing a listener can’t help but notice is the richness his baritone belting out the lyrics. Even if you’re not into country party songs, you’ll listen just to hear him sing. But first, read this fun interview to learn more about Ryan.
