Jon McLaughlin

Born and raised in Anderson, Indiana, singer/songwriter Jon McLaughlin began taking classical piano lessons at an early age. Though he lost interest in the instrument during high school and was side-lined by an accident that injured both wrists; he rediscovered his talent during senior year and began incorporating his piano skills into soulful pop music. McLaughlin enrolled in the music program at Anderson University, where he studied piano and spent his free time writing songs. Eventually, he won a school competition that allowed him to release his self-titled debut album in 2004.

A follow-up EP, Songs I Wrote and Later Recorded, came out the following year, and McLaughlin was soon given the opportunity to audition for three major labels. One such label, Island, signed him to its roster, which led to the nationwide release of Indiana -- an album that included re-recorded versions of two songs from his first effort -- in 2007. Later that year, McLaughlin's profile received an extra boost when he contributed an Oscar-nominated song, "So Close," to the Disney film Enchanted. He also performed the song during the 2008 Academy Awards Ceremony and used the resulting momentum to drum up support for his third studio album, OK Now.

McLaughlin parted ways with Island after the release of OK Now. In 2011, he rallied with the self-released Forever If Ever. The album gained enough good word of mouth that he wound up with a contract with Razor & Tie, who added a couple of tunes to Forever If Ever and released it under the title Promising Promises. Two years later, the all-new Like Us appeared on Razor & Tie. ~ Marisa Brown

That's how I felt...a Beautiful Disaster for a long time. But oddly enough that song gives me hope that one day that one guy will change everything.. .

don't read this. Now that you have started reading you can't stop. Post this on 15 more songs in 146 minutes. If you ignore this you will have bad luck. Press the space bar and it will say your crushes name it's creepy but it works.

First heard him singing Indiana on an in-flight entertainmen t mix when heading back from Tokyo to, of all places, Indiana. As someone who grew up in Indiana but has indeed lived in the mountains and on the water the song resonates strongly.

If you haven't accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, today is the day. Just say this prayer.

Heavenly Father,

I admit I'm a sinner. I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is Lord and that He died for my sins. I believe He is alive. I accept Jesus into my life and heart today. Baptize me with the promised Holy Spirit. In Jesus name I pray Amen! God Bless all of you.
