Jon Mullins Releases New Single, "Better Man"

Friday, September 18, 2020

Jon Mullins has released a new single called “Better Man”. As his first release in four years and first release since he competed on The Voice (Team Blake, steal for Team Nick) a few months back, Jon calls “Better Man” a “desperate love letter” to his wife, Whitney.

The single was penned solely by Jon as a testament to his commitment and unconditional love after Whitney took a devastating fall at her work and lost a great deal of motor and speech function for a while. Between her physical impairment and a growing battle with anxiety and depression, the young couple faced obstacles not long after moving to Nashville from Chattanooga for Jon to pursue his music career full time. Whitney is doing much better and in fact, she just became a Tik Tok overnight viral sensation when she and Jon visited a petting zoo recently and a llama spit all over her face.

“Better Man was written out of a time of despair in my life---almost like a desperate love letter," said Jon. "Because of Whitney’s accident, we had to relearn how to communicate as partners. I wrote the first and second verse and chorus right away. . . but it took months to write the bridge and finish the song. I had to keep revisiting it because I wanted the true story to be told of what was happening. This was my promise to her that no matter what was not giving up on our love.”

Review for "Better Man":

"Better Man” capitalizes on Jon’s incredible vocal range and emotional vulnerability as he has quite a knack for laying his words and thoughts all at the listener’s feet. His down to earth personality and humble attitude make him a joy to be around, whether he’s performing, creating, or just getting to know the people in the room.

So far, the song has garnered 73K streams on Spotify and 55K streams on Apple. The video, which premiered on Nashville Noise, the same day as the single, has been viewed on YouTube 35K times and 75K times on Facebook.

“Better Man” is the first of many single releases to come within the next year. He recently signed with Adam Dobres of Kick N Dirt Entertainment for booking and can’t wait to get back out on the road as COVID restrictions slowly lift. Sharing his story of faith and perseverance is the driving force behind Jon’s musical being.

Jon went to college at Tennessee Temple, alongside his older sister, where he majored in opera performance and led the worship band. Upon graduation, he got his feet wet in the local music scene before moving to Nashville full time.
