Born and raised in Central Pennsylvania Johnny Jolin grew up working a farm raising veal calves and spending every extra moment hunting and fishing and learning how to playing his Grandmother's guitar. During high school he began showing interest in the military and in his junior year he enrolled in the Army Reserves.

Throughout his career he has shared the stage with dozens of Nashville Recording Artists including Confederate Railroad, Hank Williams III, David Lee Murphy, Ricochet, Jeff Carson, Chely Wright and Randy Travis. He was featured on TNN's Charlie Daniels' Talent Round Up and even invited by the US. China Foundation to do a 2 week tour in China in 2004. In 2010, Jolin went into the studio with Nashville producer Dave Smith of the Nashville Song Lab to record "Thank God" and released it as his first ever single to Christian Country radio which debuted at #97 and after a 6-month climb peaked at #6 on the Christian Country Top 100. In December 2011 Jolin released his current single "Tell That To God" which is quickly gaining traction on both Country and Christian Country Radio.
