  • JORDAN DAVIS HITS THE TOP OF THE COUNTRY CHARTS WITH LATEST SINGLE, “BUY DIRT.”

    Jordan Davis scored his fourth career No. 1 song with “Buy Dirt,” featuring superstar and friend Luke Bryan. He co-wrote “Buy Dirt” with his brother Jacob Davis and brothers Josh and Matt Jenkins, in a rented cabin south of Nashville during the pandemic with the newfound perspective that, despite the entire world on pause, he still had what mattered most to him – his faith, his family, and his friends.

    The song originated from their morning ritual of coffee and a devotional.

    “We took a writer’s retreat a little south of Nashville, me and three of my favorite writers in the world – Matt Jenkins, Josh Jenkins and my brother Jacob,” according to the Louisiana native. “We started every day – we were down there three days – and we started every day with coffee on the back porch, and Josh would lead us in some type of devotional. He would find some scripture and then we would just kind of chew on it for a little bit. That day he had read, and I need to remember the exact scripture, but it was something about being planted, being planted in the dirt and having a strong root system so you can weather storms and rain. That is really the start of ‘Buy Dirt.’ And I don’t know if that song comes if we don’t wake up early and get out there and kind of start talking about real life. That was where it all started, and I’m grateful, grateful that I (laughs) didn’t sleep in that day.”

With his growing family, which includes wife Kristen, daughter Eloise and now son Locklan, they’re needing a bit more room.

    “We’re in the middle of a move now, like basically right down the street from my brother, my nieces and sister-in-law, which I think is gonna be so awesome for the kids,” says Jordan. “They’re already excited about it being so much closer to cousin(s) Eloise and Locklan, and I’m excited to get to see my nieces more. So, to us it’s faith, family and friends and we want to instill that in our kiddos and we want them to know that you take care of those three things first, and then we worry about everything else. And I feel like me and Kristen both are trying to kinda get that ball rolling in the direction where both Eloise and Locklan know how important family is, and I know that my brother and my sister both know that as well, and I’m just excited that we’ll be closer and get to see them more.”

    Jordan is on the brink of entering the No. 1 spot on the country charts with “Buy Dirt.”

  • THE BEST PART OF CHRISTMAS FOR JORDAN DAVIS WAS WATCHING HIS DAUGHTER, ELOISE.

    As a father of two young children — two-year-old Eloise and four-month-old Locklan — Jordan Davis had the best time this past Christmas.

    “This was Locklan’s first Christmas. Eloise is a little more tuned-in to it, so it really is, there’s no better day of the year than that,” says Jordan. “I think she loves to open presents, and so she opened everybody’s presents, whether it was for her, for my mother-in-law, for mom, it didn’t matter. Eloise was going to help open it. She didn’t care what was in it. She just wanted to rip the paper off. And to be honest with you, that was the coolest thing of, that was my favorite part of this holiday season was just seeing the joy she had for ripping off wrapping paper.”

    He said after the second half of 2021, it was good just to spend some downtime with family. “Running so wide open as we did towards the tail-end of 2021 – we played a lot of shows in a small amount of time – so being able to have that time just with family and to slow down, we needed it and I hated to see it go, but I’m glad to know that they had fun.”

    Jordan is currently making his way to the top of the country charts with his smash hit, “Buy Dirt,” featuring Luke Bryan.

You’ve got to do it before midnight, and then once midnight happens, you’re like, ‘Omigod! Now it’s time to celebrate even more.’ Debauchery is the literally bookending your entire year.” TJ: “I love how everyone starts the year off with diets and then we end the year with like excessive amounts of food. And then you get to the end of the year, you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m going to start a diet on the 1st, so I’m going to eat everything that’s in front of me.’ I love it.” JOHN: “And come February 1st, ‘what diet?’” [laughs] TJ: “What diet?

But I just kind of enjoy being off and just doing all that, but when I found out that this big CBS special is happening in my adopted hometown of Nashville where I’ve lived for almost 30 years, I really wanted to be a part of it, because it’s a special moment for the city, it’s a special moment for country music. I love our town and I love country music, and I watch the stuff out of New York and some of the other networks that do New Year’s Eve Countdowns, and there’s no reason why Nashville shouldn’t, why Country Music shouldn’t be the No. 1 thing everyone’s watching on New Year’s Eve. We have all the artists and they’re all great to work with and they’re just gonna put on great performances and I think it’ll be a big moment for the city and a big moment for Country Music. So, I asked the powers that be if I could be a part of it, and they said yes, and I’m really excited to showcase our city on CBS.”

    Travis Denning (favorite New Year’s Eve party) OC: …it was good. :41
    “I think my favorite New Year’s Eve party ever was when my sister got married, and my sister’s party got done at 10:30, 10:45 and she got married right behind a little club that I played a lot in Macon, Georgia called the Crazy Bull and love the owner. We’re boys, you know? So, we just literally walked right over and burned the house down. That was one of my favorite New Year’s Eve memories, ‘cause I got to see my sister and brother-in-law get married and that was such a great, great time, and then me and my older cousin and best friend, we ended up at Waffle House that night, so it was good.”

    Travis Denning (hangover cure) OC: …me better. :17
    “You know, I think my hangover cure is just sitting on my butt, [laughs] not doing anything. Drink some water, a cup of coffee, but usually anything greasy or just some big ole Mexican food that’ll get me at least to a nap, which will get me better.”

     

  • ‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS 2021

    Keith Urban
    Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

    The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
    In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

    Carrie Underwood
    The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
    While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.

    And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
    Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap

    Kimberly from Little Big Town
    When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

    TJ Osborne
    Away to the window I flew like a flash,
    Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

    John Osborne
    The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
    Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.

    Tae from Maddie & Tae
    When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

    Jimi from Little Big Town
    With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
    I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.

    Lauren Alaina
    More rapid than eagles his reindeer they came,
    And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

    “Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
    On, Comet! On, Cupid! On Donner and Blitzen!

    Caylee Hammack
    To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
    Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”

    Dierks Bentley
    So up to the house-top the reindeer they flew,
    With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too

    Darius Rucker
    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
    The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

    As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
    Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

    Jordan Davis
    He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
    And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.

    Maddie from Maddie & Tae
    A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
    And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

    Karen from Little Big Town
    His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
    His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

    Jon Pardi
    His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
    And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

    The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
    And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.

    Brandon Lay
    He had a broad face and a little round belly,
    That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

    He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
    And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!

    Phillip from Little Big Town
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

    Josh Turner
    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
    And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.

    Luke Bryan
    And laying his finger aside of his nose,
    And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

    He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
    And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

    Alan Jackson
    But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight,
    “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”
