  • JORDAN DAVIS RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR “TUCSON TOO LATE.”

    Jordan Davis released the official music video for his new single, “Tucson Too Late.” The Louisiana native co-wrote the follow-up to his recent multi-week No. 1 “Next Thing You Know” with his brother Jacob Davis and brothers Josh and Matt Jenkins, the same dream team behind “Buy Dirt.”

     

    He says of the song inspired by Keith Whitley’s “Miami, My Amy,” “I really like the way we kept this very simple, we let the lyrics speak, we tried to really just kinda make the listener feel the kinda worry that this guy was going through trying to get this girl back, and I think Paul (DiGiovanni) absolutely nailed the production on it in letting the vocals speak and letting the lyrics shine. And I think too, like it’s something that I’ve never done. I don’t think I’ve ever released a song that is as maybe traditional as this one. You know, stuff like this is what I grew up on. Being able to have a song like this out that has this kinda feel, I don’t know, for me it’s fun.”

    Jordan will perform his new single when he performs in in Salt Lake City on Friday (August 11th) and in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday (August 12th) on Dierks Bentley’s Gravel & Gold Tour.

    “So, ‘Tucson Too Late,’ another song I wrote with Jacob, Matt, and Josh, the ‘Buy Dirt’ squad. I write more with them more than I write with anybody. I think it’s cool for us, every time we get together it like, what can we do, what have we not done, what is something that we can try to write today that’ll challenge us that’s different? And I remember talking about (Keith Whitley’s) ‘Miami, My Amy,’ you know how that song just grabs you, and as you can tell, out of that conversation came ‘Tuscon Too Late.’ I really like the way we kept this very simple, we let the lyrics speak, we tried to really just kinda make the listener feel the kinda worry that this guy was going through trying to get this girl back, and I think Paul absolutely nailed the production on it in letting the vocals speak and letting the lyrics shine.

    “Next Thing You Know” Lyrics:

    Swear that you’re staying single next thing you know

    You meet a girl at a bar and next thing you know

    You get her laughin’, its two a.m.

    You’re tellin your buddies three months in

    That she ain’t moving in but next thing you know

    There’s a Uhaul trailer next thing you know

    Your old apartment is y’all’s new place

    There goes the carpet but the deer head stays

     

    Next thing you know saving money like never before

    Just to spend it all at a jewelry store

    Getting down on one knee on her momma’s porch Just pray she don’t say no

    Next thing you know your best man gives a half drunk speech

    And your sunburn on a honeymoon beach

    And your left hand is getting used to that ring

    There the next two or three years ago

    Next thing you know

     

    Weren’t really trying next thing you know

    There’s a test on the counter next thing you know

    She’s standing there crying nodding her head yes

    Your half excited half scared to death

    Cause next thing you know

    You’re wearing scrubs and a funny white hat

    And the doctor’s sayin how you doing there dad and

    Nobody’s ever called you that

    And you take the drive home slow

    Next thing you know its first steps, first date, first car

    Its 11:01 wondering where they are

    You sayin’ that USC’s too far

    Its amazing how fast seventeen years go

    Next thing you know, Next thing you know

     

    Next thing you know you get to know your wife again

    And you’re more in love than you’ve ever been

    With a lot of years of remember whens and still some down the road

    ‘Cause next thing you know you got a yard full of your kids’ kids

    And you take them to church, teach em to fish and ya

    Tell them stories every chance you get

    ‘Bout how fast this life down here can go

    Next thing you know, Next thing you know

    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.”
