Jordan Davis earns the No.1 most added song at country radio this week with his new single “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot,” listen HERE. The sentimental track was written by Jordan along with Lonnie Lee Fowler and follows Jordan’s back-to-back No.1 hit singles “Singles You Up” as well as “Take It From Me.” Jordan co-wrote all three tracks included on his debut album, Home State, which continues to accumulate impressive sales and streaming numbers, nearing 500M total streams, since its release last March.
Jordan is set to perform “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot” on ABC’s Strahan and Sara this Thursday, April 25 as critics and fans continue to praise the song. MusicRow notes, “the result is dreamy thanks to his extraordinary vocal warmth and an ultra romantic lyric.”
“‘Slow Dance In A Parking Lot’ is a really special song on my album,” says Jordan. “Getting to relive Lonnie’s first date with his wife in the writing room that day was pretty cool. We’ve been getting a great reaction when we play it during our live show so I’m really excited for fans to hear it on the road this summer.”
The Louisiana native just won Best New Country Artist at the iHeart Radio Music Awards after previously being named Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2018 in addition to Country Aircheck/Mediabase’s Most Heard New Artist of 2018. Jordan was recently nominated for ACM New Male Artist of the Year after winning MusicRow’s Breakout Artist of the Year. In addition, he is currently nominated for Nashville Artist-Writer of the Year at the upcoming AIMP Awards.
Jordan is now on the road with Old Dominion as part of the “Make It Sweet Tour” with upcoming stops in Boise, ID, Reno, NV and San Jose, CA. The singer/songwriter will perform at Stagecoach Festival this Sunday (April 28th) and will next join Rascal Flatts on the “Summer Playlist Tour” starting this June.

Jordan Davis (Slow Dance in a Parking Lot) OC: …in there. 1:12
“We kind of relieved Lonnie’s [Fowler] first date with his wife. He started talking about how I think they went to a movie, and then on the way home Garth Brooks came on the radio, they pulled over into a parking lot and started slow dancing. You read the title and that’s it, like where do you go other than the fact that these people are eventually gonna end up be slow dancing in a parking lot? So, I think for me one of the reasons why that title just jumped out to me is alright we’re giving them what this song is about from jump street. You read the track listing — ‘Slow Dance In A Parking Lot,’ that’s whats gonna happen. How do we bring in the real-life end of this and make people wanna listen to it again? The only way to do it was we got Lonnie talking and we kind of put that night into a song, and I know it means a lot to him. That’s another one too that I feel like the phrasing on that song is something that is unique to who I am, you know? I almost kind of ramble on it, but I still feel like through the rambling you get the feeling of… and the verses and you set it up right. One of my favorite parts about that song is the fact we got a rent-a-cop in it, I don’t even know if they like being called rent-a-cops but [laughs] we definitely got that in there.”
