Jonathan Singleton is an American country music singer and songwriter. He is known for co-writing the songs "Don't" by Billy Currington, "Watching Airplanes" by Gary Allan, "Red Light" and "Let It Rain" by David Nail and "Why Don't We Just Dance" by Josh Turner. In 2009, the American Society of Composers, Publishers and Authors (ASCAP) awarded Singleton for "Don't," which was one of the most-played country music songs of that year.[1]

In 2009, he founded a band called Jonathan Singleton & the Grove, in which he sang lead vocals. The band also consisted of William Coats (drums, background vocals), Andy Dixon (bass guitar, background vocals), Justin Dudley (keyboards), Dustin Nunley (rhythm guitar, background vocals) and Josh Smith (rhythm guitar, background vocals). They signed to Universal South Records in March 2009 and released the single "Livin' in Paradise" that month.[2] It debuted at No. 60 on the country charts for the week of April 4, 2009, and peaked at No. 48. A second single, "Look Who's Back in Love" debuted at No. 56 on the country charts for the week of December 26, 2009. The band's song "I'm Afraid of Storms" is included in soundtrack to the 2012 video game Silent Hill: Downpour.
