  • MEMORIAL DAY 2024

    Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces. It is observed on the last Monday of May.

    Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. However, by the turn of the 20th century, Memorial Day honored Americans who have sacrificed their lives in all wars.

  • NEXT THING YOU KNOW, JORDAN DAVIS PICKS UP THE AWARD FOR SONG OF THE YEAR.

    Jordan Davis won Song of the Year for his multi-week No. 1 “Next Thing You Know.” Written by Jordan with Greylan James, Chase McGill and Josh Osborne, “Next Thing You Know” was his third consecutive multi-week No. 1 off of his PLATINUM-certified sophomore album, Bluebird Days.

    This was Jordan’s first TWO ACM Awards with an Artist and Songwriter credit on “Next Thing You Know.”

     

    Audio / Jordan Davis talks about writing "Next Thing You Know."

    Download

    Jordan Davis (writing Next Thing You Know) OC: …song is today. :59
    “There’s a saying that says ‘raising kids – the days are long, the years are short,’ and that’s what this song is to me. I kind of came in wanting to write something like that, you know kind of a slow down time song, and Greylan had this idea. The idea initially was about going to a bar or going somewhere and meeting somebody and then just the progression of a relationship. I kind of hijacked the title and said, ‘Hey man. I love that title, but we’re going to write it in the sense of having kids, watching ‘em grow up and hopefully becoming a grandparent, you know? Chase McGill and Josh Osborne both have kiddos, and I think they kind of grabbed on it. Greylan, hats off to him. He’s the single kid of the group, so he was like, ‘Man, I’ll go there. I don’t know how much input I can be able to say in this, but I’ll go there with you.’ I mean, he’s a great writer, and it was fun to kind of see the title that he threw out evolve into what the song is today.”

    Chris Stapleton (Higher album) OC: …on this record. :56
    “One thing that’s probably notable about the record to me is it’s the first one that we’ve put out that doesn’t contain a cover, so there’s no covers on this record. So, in that way, I guess you could say it should be more intrinsically whatever we do. So, there’s definitely some exploration of the edges of what that is, and certainly some moments of stretching out vocally and trying to see what that is. There’s some different stuff on this record, I think, and I think it’s really great. I think it’s something that people will enjoy. I think there’s something on it for everybody, which is kind of always my goal. If you’re a kind of a hardcore traditional country person, there’s a song on there for that somewhere. If you leaned into more of the R&B side of what we do, there’s stuff on there for that. If you like the rock side of things that we do, there’s stuff on there for that. And there’s some really great songs on here. I’m excited about the songs on this record.”

    “So, when I actually found out that I was nominated, I was driving to rehearsals and I totally forgot that the nominations were coming out that morning, and I looked down and I had 18 text messages, and I was like, ‘Oh, I must’ve gotten nominated.’ (laughs) So, I wasn’t expecting it, I really wasn’t. I mean, I love that song to death. There’s a lot of amazing songs out this year, so I truly just started calling people and saying thank you and already looking forward to being down in Dallas and seeing how this thing shakes out.”

    Jordan Davis (awards nominations) OC: …a song acknowledged. :38
    “Nominations are truly wins. I don’t think any of us really do it for awards. They’re definitely special, but yeah, to be acknowledged by the ACMs for having a song up for Song of the Year, to me, I just go back to watching the ACMs with my family and seeing that award every year and now here I am for a chance to be up there, and I don’t know. It’s just kind of full circle. So, for me, it shows how special country music is, these award shows, but also too, it makes you feel like you’re doing something right enough to get a song acknowledged.”

     

    Audio / Jordan Davis talks about his ACM-nominated song, "What My World Spins Around."

    Jordan Davis (WMWSA song) OC: …any faster. :47
    “It’s special because of what the song means to me. A lot of the messages, a lot of the comments I get on this are that there’s a spot for everybody on this – married, unmarried, engaged, grandparent, expecting a baby for the first time – there’s a spot for you in it. I’m hoping, that in all honesty, I think where I wrote the song from was you know being a touring musician and being gone for half the year and even in four years of having a kid, I’ve already missed a lot of stuff. I hope that that slows down, or at least I’m able to kinda really cherish some of the moments that I’m at home. So, aybe that’s it. Maybe it’s just seeing people slow down a little bit and realize that time’s moving fast and we don’t need to make it move any faster.”

    JOHN: “You know, it’s absolutely crazy. I mean, the best way for us to stay grounded is when it happens…it’s a blur on stage. You know, you have an idea of what you’re going to say, it never comes out right. And then, I walked backstage, and we get a million texts from friends, my wife, from family and stuff like that, and it reminds you constantly of where you came from and the journey that you took. There will be a day where we won’t even be nominated, and that’s okay. The reality is nothing is permanent, and we’re fortunately in a position now where we can kind of swim and bask in the glory of something, and that being this country music community has lifted us on their shoulders for years now, and we’d be nothing without them and I’m very grateful for that.”

I talked to Dustin, the director, and I was like, ‘Man, I feel like wherever we are, we’re just blowing stuff up and so let’s go blow some stuff up and burn it down.’ And he had a great vision out there in New Mexico. We were in the desert, I mean, the desert, desert. You couldn’t, it was like the ocean, but sand; the middle of the ocean but sand. And it was actually really cold in the morning, then it got really hot at night and then the smoke and the fire and they’re wanting me to walk through it over and over, take after take after take. I’m walking through like this chemical burning black smoke. I’m like this is really risking it for a music video, but it turned out great.”

We were like, don’t go into labor.” (LAUGHS) KIMBERLY: “That was our first award ever!” KAREN: “Very special, and this awards show is always like so much fun.”

    The War and Treaty (ACM 2023 nomination) OC: (Tanya) …country music. 1:13
    “Hey everybody! I’m Tanya, and I’m Michael, and we’re The War and Treaty. (Michael) This morning, April 13th, we woke up and to be able to see Bobby Bones do the nominations for the ACMS ad get to the category of Duo of the Year, and we were just callin’ ‘em out. We were like, ‘Brooks & Dunn,’ ‘Dan + Shay,’ and we were like ‘Brothers Osborne,’ Brothers Osborne, yes! Dan + Shay, Dan + Shay, and we was like, ‘Yes.’ We were like, ‘Maddie & Tae,’ we was like ‘Yes,’ and then time slowed down. They were like The War and Treaty. And honestly, we burst into tears, we screamed, we yelled, we high-fived, we hugged our manager, Christina. In our minds then traveled back in time and forward. We traveled to Charly Pride, DeFord Bailey and Ray Charles, and we were like, ‘I hope they’re seeing this wherever they are, and I hope they’re dancing and high-fiving as well. Thank you, ACMs.” TANYA: “Thank you so much to the ACMs and everybody who’s nominated and all of our peers in country music.”

And the fact that I am now one of those people just absolutely blows my mind and I’m just so thankful and so excited.”

  • JORDAN DAVIS SCORES HIS 7TH NO. 1 HIT WITH “TUCSON TOO LATE.”

    Jordan Davis has hit the top of the Billboard and Country Aircheck country charts with his latest hit, “Tucson Too Late.” The Louisiana native wrote the tune with his brother Jacob Davis and brothers Josh and Matt Jenkins, the same dream team behind “Buy Dirt.”

    “I’ve said this, you know, before, I was a big (Keith) Whitley fan, and ‘Miami My Amy’ was always a song that I thought was done so cool, and it’s just a cool way to write a song. So, this was us trying to hopefully live up to something like that. But, yeah, definitely different than anything I’ve ever put out before, and it’s been cool to see a song that is different than ‘World Spins’ and ‘Take It’ and ‘Singles’ and kind of the more uptempo singles I’ve had, to see this one do well too is awesome.”

    In between dates on his own headlining Damn Good Time Tour, he’s also direct support for Luke Combs on several of his stadium dates. Next up for Jordan is the ACM Lifting Lives show with Parker McCollum on Wednesday (May 15th).

    At this year’s ACM Awards on Thursday (May 16th), Jordan has four nominations including Single of the Year (“Next Thing You Know”), Song of the Year (“Next Thing You Know” – Artist & Songwriter nominations) and Visual Media of the Year (“Next Thing You Know”). Catch the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards on Amazon Prime beginning at 8pm ET/7pm CT/5pm PT.

  • JORDAN DAVIS WAS ALMOST TOO LATE TO TULANE INSTEAD OF TUCSON.

    Jordan Davis is closing in on the top of the country charts with his latest hit, “Tucson Too Late,” which he wrote with his brother Jacob Davis and brothers Josh and Matt Jenkins, the same dream team behind “Buy Dirt.” However, he recently revealed the song could’ve been called “Tulane Too Late,” but thanks to Google, they got “Tucson Too Late.”

    “Initially it was Tulane Too Late. I was thinking they were talking about the highway, like a two-lane highway,” recalls Jordan. “It turns out they were talking about the University of New Orleans, Tulane. So, then I just said, ‘Alright, this is way too confusing. We’ve got to fix this.’ So, (laughs) we googled T towns (laughs), and the first one that popped up was Tucson. So, there we go—‘Tucson Too Late.’”

    In between dates on his own headlining Damn Good Time Tour, he’s also direct support for Luke Combs on several of his stadium dates, including one this Saturday (May 11th) at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

    Audio / Jordan Davis revealed his latest hit, "Tucson Too Late," was originally "Tulane Too Late."

  • JORDAN DAVIS CRUSHES THE COMPETITION ON THE ROAD.

    Jordan Davis keeps in shape on the road by playing basketball, pickleball and golfing, but don’t think he’s a pushover and will let you win at any sport he is playing. He’s a pretty competitive fella.

    “When it comes to – don’t get it twisted – we are playing pickleball half for exercise, because nobody wants to go do cardio, so you might as well play something while you’re getting cardio in,” says Jordan. “The other half is I am trying to absolutely crush every other person on the other side of that net. I, I am. I am competitive. I like to win. I don’t like to lose, and it boils over sometimes. We have to have some sitdowns in the greenroom and be like, ‘Hey-I didn’t really mean that.’ It boils over on the golf course. If I’m gonna do something, I want to win at it. It’s pretty competitive out there (laughs), so yes (I’m competitive).”

    The Louisiana native is closing in at the top of the country charts with his latest hit, “Tucson Too Late,” and he takes his Damn Good Time World Tour to Charlotte and Wilmington, North Carolina, as well as Jacksonville, Florida this weekend.

  • JORDAN DAVIS STRUCK “COUNTRY GOLD” IN DUET WITH ANNE WILSON.

    Jordan Davis joined Anne Wilson on the song “Country Gold,” which is from her new album, REBEL. Anne’s new collaboration with Jordan comes just months after first sharing the stage with him at the 2023 ACM Honors for a live performance of “Buy Dirt.” Serving as the first of three duets on the album, “Country Gold” written by Anne, Jeff Pardo and Matthew West, pulls inspiration from the biblical meaning of “gold” equating a symbol of spiritual wealth. Anne and Jordan expertly blend their unique, warm vocals as they weave heartfelt narratives from their family histories, emphasizing the joy found in life’s simple moments.

    Jordan says he didn’t even need to hear “Country Gold” before saying he’d collaborate with Anne, since he and his family are such big fans of hers. “I’ve been a fan of Anne forever. My wife loves Anne. Eloise’s, one of her favorite songs is ‘My Jesus’ from Anne,” says the Louisiana native. “So, like when I got the message to collab with Anne, I said yes before I listened to the song. I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m in,’ and then I hit the link to the listen to the song. So, it didn’t matter what it was going to sound like, I was gonna do it. [I’m] such, such a fan of her. After getting to meet her, I mean, she’s gonna be a rockstar, and the record is so good. They wrote ‘Country Gold,’ they wrote the mess out of that song. I’m so glad that the world is finally getting to hear Anne. It’s gonna shine a light on her music, and if there’s any music that needs to have a light shined on it, it’s Anne Wilson’s.”

    Jordan is currently making his way to the top of the country charts with “Tucson Too Late.”
