Jordan Davis today releases his highly anticipated new album, Bluebird Days. This week, Davis performed new song “Tucson Too Late” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! He also recently performed his current radio single, “Next Thing You Know” on NBC’s TODAY. He will also visit CBS’ The Talk on March 31st for a performance and interview about the release of his new album and recent milestones including his fifth career No. 1 at country radio, sold-out headlining dates across the US, and more.
Featured by The Tennessean, American Songwriter, Billboard, and more, Bluebird Days debuted to early rave reviews, with Billboard noting “Davis soars on ‘Bluebird Days’” and Entertainment Focus echoing, “Jordan Davis comes of age on new album ‘Bluebird Days’ and shows the world the type of mature, meaningful and melodic songwriter he is.” The 17-song album includes Davis’ recent multi-week No. 1 “What My World Spins Around,” and breakout hit, “Buy Dirt.” Written by Davis along with his brother, Jacob Davis, and brothers Matt and Josh Jenkins, the 2x Platinum hit “Buy Dirt” garnered numerous accolades including Song of the Year at the CMA and NSAI awards, as well as Billboard, AMA, iHeart and ACM award nominations and has more than 900 Million streams to date.
Of the new album, Davis shared with American Songwriter:“‘Buy Dirt’ [opened] this new lane of being able to connect with fans…I hope people can listen to my music and get something out of it the way that I did when I listened to a Kristofferson song or a Prine song… I hope that people can see that there is happiness in [this album] and even in some of the sadder songs, those sad songs helped get me to where I’m at now.”
Davis also spoke with Today’s Country Radio with Kelleigh Bannen on Apple Music Country, about the highly anticipated follow up to his RIAA Gold-certified debut album, Home State, as well as his appreciation for his past experiences and where he is in his life. “If there was a ‘Bluebird Day,’ that is a life, then I’m in it right now. It’s just a special time and I don’t forget how blessed I am to be in it.” The rest of Davis’ interview and full episode of Today’s Country Radio with Kelleigh Bannen on Apple Music Country will be available today at 11am PT / 1pm CT / 2pm ET or anytime on-demand at apple.co/_TodaysCountry.
Having solidified himself as one of the industry’s top singer/songwriters, 2022 marked a breakthrough year for Davis. In Bluebird Days, the award-winning singer and songwriter continues that momentum- allowing listeners to take a deeper look into his past and what has made him one of the most in-demand hitmakers in the industry through a combination of new tracks and fan-favorites. Bluebird Days is a “rich, deep, meaningful album” (Entertainment Focus) that digs deep into Davis’ personal experiences and offers a wide range of emotions, meditations, and memories, matched by his signature sound blending traditional and contemporary genres and styles. “It’s not just the lyrics…it’s the way he summarizes life, love, family,” notes Taste of Country.
“I’ve settled into a really good headspace in writing songs, which is rooted in being honest—about past things that I’ve gone through, good or bad, and about some things that have kind of scared me about the future,” says Davis. “The big thing for me was to show my growth. Growth in shows, growth in the songwriting, growth in the topics we’re touching on. I really wanted to show how I’ve changed as an artist and a songwriter, for the better, than on my first album.”
With Bluebird Days, Davis invites his fans to explore the vulnerable side of him, with songs like “Fishing Spot,” a homage to his late grandfather. The title track “Bluebird Days,” examines his life as a child of divorced parents, while “Short Fuse” allows the Shreveport, LA native to open up about a side of him that he keeps close to his chest. The spirit of those cloudless, sunny days and moments of lightheartedness and appreciation shine on songs like “Damn Good Time” and “One Beer in Front of the Other,” while “Tucson Too Late” reunites the award-winning team behind “Buy Dirt” and has earned comparisons of Davis to Keith Whitley (The Tennessean).
Davis’ next single, “Next Thing You Know,” has already raised its hand as a fan-favorite, earning over 150 Million streams to date ahead of its official impact at country radio next week (2/21). The full 17 track album, Bluebird Days, is available HERE.

Jordan Davis (making Bluebird Days) OC: …felt right. :45
“The making of Bluebird Days was definitely a little weird in that half of it was recorded during COVID, you know, which gave us more time to get things right, but at the same time made things tough to get musicians in to play. It was weird in the recording process of I, but I think the good thing is that it gave us a lot of extra time to make sure the songs were right, gave us time to write more, we didn’t feel as rushed, and you know this is the sophomore album for me so, this was a big one and I wanted it to be special, and I knew what I wanted to do with it. So, I was really happy that we did have a little bit of extra time to make sure that this one felt right.”
Jordan Davis (Pandemic Influence on Songs on Album) OC: …have been. 1:07
“You know I think for coming off the road for a couple years, you kinda realize what’s important when music goes away. So, that kinda started this vein of songwriting that led to Buy Dirt, and then I think once I got in that I don’t see myself getting away from it. That felt so easy to write because I think it was real, I think it was honest, and I think for me as a songwriter that kinda opened up the door to what Bluebird Days would end up, what I didn’t know at the time, but I was making this album. Writing songs that kinda echoed that, not just what truly is important, which I think is what Buy Dirt touches on, but even some of the things I didn’t know I would ever write on, whether it be things with me that I’ve realized that I need to work on, or some things in my past that I never thought I’d write about that I have written about, but I think it comes down to being honest and being a little more real with my songwriting than I have been.”
Hey y’all, it’s Jordan Davis, …my new album, BLUEBIRD DAYS, is in stores now.
