An Interview With Ryan Langdon and His New Single "Lit in the Sticks"

Shannon is a passionate country fan who enjoys getting to know the artists and their music. She also loves spreading joy through interviews.


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.

An Interview With Ryan Langdon

Shannon Henry: Please tell us about your new single, “Lit in the Sticks.”

Ryan Langdon: It's a fun song about taking your friends away from their city lives and having a party in the sticks! Where no rules and dress codes exist.

SH: What’s the biggest difference between a career in Canada and a career in Nashville?

RL: I think the biggest difference is that Nashville, being the mecca of country music in the world, attracts the best of the best in the industry.

I think the coolest person I've met so far has been Hugh Jackman.

SH: If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing for a living?

Don’t take no for an answer.

RL: Fresh cut grass from the baseball diamond.

SH: Do you cook? If so, what’s your worst kitchen disaster and your best masterpiece?

I really like Ryan Langdon, his songs and especially his voice. I have always liked a baritone voice anyway. I listen to a big variety of music and country music is something I enjoy. I think Ryan will have a great and long career. This is a very good article that I enjoyed.

Shannon Henry (author) from Texas on July 28, 2019:

Ha! I guess I'm right there with you. Although I listen to a lot of genres and a lot of music from various decades other than this one, my generation's music is now part of the "oldie" classification on the radio dials.

Glad you like the interviews. I've got a couple more I need to post and still more lined up to interview. One of them is a 15-year-old girl. :) I'm looking forward to that one, for sure.

Suzie from Carson City on July 28, 2019:

Shanon Marie....I'm over there with bro, listening and groovin to the Oldies. We Boomers are devoted...loyal ....happy but not Hip & have no problem with this! LOL

Your "new artist" intros are always entertaining & of course, informative. I DO like Country now & then for a little change. I am not always wearing long skirts and a flower in my hair!

Shannon Henry (author) from Texas on July 28, 2019:

Hahaha, Bill. I listen to plenty of those, too. You should hear my kids call me old. But I know the lyrics to some music before my time so they can't really go by that.

Shannon Henry (author) from Texas on July 28, 2019:

Thanks, Angie. I love his voice. LOL

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on July 28, 2019:

The only way for me to stay current with music is through your articles and interviews. lol I still listen to the Golden Oldies. I'm a hopeless cause, Shannon.
