• JORDAN DAVIS RELEASES A VIDEO FOR HIS SONG “DETOURS.”

    Jordan Davis released a sweet, tender-hearted video for the song, “Detours.” The clip features his wife Kristen, daughter Eloise and brother Jacob, and it chronicles his transition from boy to man; from living the single life to meeting his wife, getting married and becoming a father. If you aren’t crying by the time you get to the middle of the song, you don’t have a soul.

     

     

    Jordan just celebrated his third No. 1 single with “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot,” this week.

  • JORDAN DAVIS HITS THE TOP OF THE COUNTRY CHARTS WITH “SLOW DANCE IN A PARKING LOT.”

    It was a dream of becoming a songwriter that first brought Shreveport, Louisiana native Jordan Davis to Nashville in 2012. A lot has changed for 2020 ACM Best New Male Artist of the Year nominee since moving to Music City. From signing a record deal and racking up over one billion streams of his debut album Home State to touring the country playing for fans and now notching his third consecutive No. 1 single with “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot,” one thing has remained constant for the breakthrough hitmaker, his love for the craft of songwriting.

    When Davis sat down with co-writer Lonnie Fowler for a writing session in 2015 – their first together – he was feeling creatively spent after a week of writing daily. But as the two got to know each other, discussing hometowns and first dates, it was Fowler’s story of his first date with his now-wife that became the foundation for the already Gold Certified “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot.”

    “When Lonnie told me the story of that first date with his wife…he was taking her home from their college formal and didn’t want the night to end, so he pulled into a parking lot and put on Garth Brooks’ ‘She’s Every Woman’ and asked her for one last dance. I just thought ‘man, that captures everything country music is about right there,’” shares the man Billboard and Rolling Stone have dubbed an “Artist to Watch.”

    Davis continues, “Sharing the truth in three and a half minutes…that is what a good country song does. It is what we wanted to do with ‘Slow Dance,’ tell this real and honest love story. It’s been great to see that authenticity resonate with fans. From slow dancing at our shows to sharing their own videos on socials slow dancing in parking lots, they’ve really embraced it. Big thanks to Lonnie for letting me share his story and to the fans and country radio for their continued support. I couldn’t be more proud or thankful.”

    The song Taste of Country called “a down-to-earth love song,” is the third single from Davis’s debut album Home State. It marks his third consecutive No. 1, following the 2x Platinum Certified “Singles You Up” and Platinum Certified “Take It From Me.”

    And as Forbes recently noted, “the hits just keep coming” for Davis. This success follows a string of recent releases including the deeply personal “Detours,” “Trouble Town” which also served as the name of his just wrapped headlining Trouble Town Tour,  a collaboration with pop star Julia Michaels called “Cool Anymore,” as well as an Amazon Original cover of Jo Dee Messina’s 1996 hit “Heads Carolina, Tails California.”

    “Hi, this is Carrie Underwood. I am dealing with the social distancing much like everybody else. We are just at home, and we are trying to get out and explore when the weather’s nice enough to do so. We are so lucky that we have some land around us that we get to get outside and get some of our energy out, especially with a five-year-old, for Isaiah, trying to come up with crafts. I’ve been cooking a lot. My house is spotless. [laughs] But just trying to do what I can work-wise as much as I can at home and trying not to worry and praying much like everybody else.”

    “My favorite show? It depends on what time of year it is, to be honest. We do guilty watch The Bachelor or Bachelorette. I love The Walking Dead when that’s on. I do like A Million Little Things when that’s on. It seems like maybe when one of my favorite shows ends, it’s like another one starts back up again. But we watch a lot of murder-mystery type shows, as well.”

    “I’m doing a lot of the same things I’ve always done to stay healthy. I’m trying to eat right, take care of my body. But I have followed the guidelines of quarantining myself. I’m trying to do everything asked of me. I’m currently in the mountains and I’m rock climbing. I’m completely solo. I’m off the grid. I’ve stocked up on a lot of frozen meats. I’ve got a little lodge up here in Kentucky, so I’m hanging out here, so that’s where I’m spending my time. I’ve always wanted to learn Spanish. I’ve always been able to dabble in it, but I want to get better at it. So, the first thing I did was I downloaded the dual lingo app, and it’s very elementary. Every single morning, I try to spend 45 minutes to an hour with that app, and the other thing that I’ve been trying to do is I have been outside trying to work on my skateboard game.”

There’s some woods behind the house we can go and walk in, and we’re doing that now after we binged out on Netflix and Youtube, and got some dogs. I’ve got a little bird dog puppy, I’ll get out in the yard, trying to train, so I’ll mess with him a little bit. But getting to spend some time around the house, taking it easy, but I’m hoping this thing passes sooner than later.”

We’re all in this together and we have to take the necessary precautions to stop this horrible, horrible virus, and as hard as it is for me, I am doing everything I can to be safe and clean and do my part and I think we all have to do that right now. And I’m writing on Zoom, which is an app that I can connect with, it’s a video app that I can connect with the other songwriters and hopefully I can finish this album in this time and have that ready to go when we all get back to our lives.”

We are all very isolated, but strangely we’re all going through this together. And I think it’s very, very important just to give each other a call – call a loved one, call your Mom, call your dad, call anyone, call someone that you haven’t talked to in years. I think it’s very important to stay very connected. Even though we’re physically isolated we don’t have to be spiritually or emotionally isolated from people, so just give people a call and while you’re at it, take a damn shower already. It’s been four days!”

  • JORDAN DAVIS SLOW DANCES NEAR THE TOP OF THE COUNTRY CHARTS.

    Jordan Davis is closing in on the top of the country charts with his latest hit, “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot,” the follow-up to his previous two No. 1 hits, “Singles You Up” and “Take It From Me.”

    The Louisiana native co-wrote the sentimental tune with Lonnie Fowler after talking about Lonnie’s first date with his now wife. It’s a true story. That was written with Lonnie Fowler. “We didn’t have an idea of what we were going to write that day, and we started talking about first dates,” says Jordan. “He asked me about my first date, which was not eventful at all, and then I asked him about his first date, and it was him and his wife on their way home, a Garth Brooks song comes on the radio, they pull in a parking lot and he asks her to slow dance. I was like, ‘Dude, if there’s ever a country song, that’s it right there.’”

    “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” has already been certified gold.

    Jordan Davis is at home with his wife Kristen and daughter Eloise experiencing the same thing as the rest of the world during this time of COVID-19-worry, anxiety and being thankful for the ability to be home with his family. The Lousiana native had already made it to the U-K last week when word came that the C2C (Country to Country) festival was being canceled. He and his band turned around and came home. He tells ABC News Radio he’s really worried about his band and crew. “If we’re not on the road, you know, we’re not making money,” Jordan explains. “And if we’re not making money, I can’t pay my crew. I can’t pay my band…You know, everybody thinks that music is mailbox money. And it’s really not. It’s road money.”

    He recorded a message to his fans and revealed what he’s been doing while quarantined at home. “I hope everybody is staying healthy and safe during the social distancing. I know we’re catching up on some movies and some TV shows and also just spending a lot of time with my daughter and my wife, trying to get back into catching up on some books and just kind of re-centering and slowing down a little bit.
