2020 ACM Best New Male Artist of the Year nominee Jordan Davis is set to join the latest installment of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Songwriter Sessions tonight, at 8 pm CDT via the museum’s Instagram Live. Davis will be sharing stories and songs from his latest self-titled EP with museum Senior Director, Producer, and Writer, Peter Cooper. A spinoff of the museum’s popular Saturday Songwriter Session, offered weekly in the museum’s Ford Theater, the museum has been bringing the program to fans via Instagram Live during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the many changes the Shreveport native has experienced since moving to Music City, Davis and Cooper will have much to discuss. From signing a record deal with MCA Nashville to racking up over one billion streams of his debut album Home State and notching three consecutive No. 1s, one thing has remained constant for the breakthrough hitmaker, his love for the craft of songwriting. That passion drives his latest project, a six-song, self-titled EP released earlier this summer featuring latest single “Almost Maybes” which Billboard calls “a sure contender for song of the summer.” Listen to the EP HERE.
Teaming once again with Home State producer Paul DiGiovanni, Davis delivers the catchy hooks and sing-a-longs that have become his signature with tracks like “Almost Maybes,” written with songwriting heavy weights Jesse Frasure and Hillary Lindsey, and the lighthearted “Ruin My Weekend.” But American Songwriter says he “rips pages from the book of John Prine” describing him as, “the kind of high-wire act always balancing between commercial viability and lyrical splendor.” He goes deeper with the personal “Detours” and spiritual “Church In A Chevy,” a song that feels more timely in the face of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
The six-song collection includes latest single “Almost Maybes,” critically acclaimed “Detours” and recent collaboration with pop superstar Julia Michaels, “Cool Anymore.” Check out the pair’s recent “live from home” performance of the song HERE.
