About Jordan Davis A Native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Jordan Davis graduated from LSU and briefly pursued the path of his degree working as an environmental consultant; however, his passion for music and songwriting eventually compelled him to move to Nashville in the summer of 2012. In 2018, MCA Nashville’s Jordan Davis released his Gold-certified debut album, Home State, which features his three consecutive No. 1 hits: Platinum-certified “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot,” the Double Platinum-certified “Singles You Up” and Platinum-certified “Take It From Me.” In 2019 Davis won Best New Country Artist at the iHeart Radio Music Awards and was a two-time nominee for ACM New Male Artist of the Year. He was also named Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2018 as well as Country Aircheck/Mediabase’s Most Heard New Artist of 2018. Davis has since accumulated over 2 billion streams worldwide. The hitmaker released a six-song, self-titled EP featuring a collaboration with pop superstar Julia Michaels titled “Cool Anymore.”
In May 2021, Davis released his new eight-song EP, Buy Dirt. Davis co-wrote every song on the EP except for the John Prine-inspired “Blow Up Your TV,” who Davis cites as one of his most important influences on his life and music. The EP features country superstar Luke Bryan, who lends his vocals on the vulnerable title track and centerpiece of the EP. Davis earned four ACM nominations for the upcoming awards show including nods for Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Music Event of the Year with his fourth No. 1 Platinum-selling single, “Buy Dirt.” With “Buy Dirt,” Davis also received his first ever CMA nomination for Musical Event of the Year. Davis has performed on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” NBC’s “TODAY,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and more. Davis has toured with Kane Brown, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Jake Owen, Kip Moore, Old Dominion and more. This spring, he hits the road for the second leg of his Buy Dirt Tour including his headlining debut at the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
