NASHVILLE, Tenn. – MCA Nashville’s Jordan Davis celebrated a milestone achievement Friday night before he played to a sold-out crowd at The Theater at Madison Square Garden as part of Old Dominion’s “Make It Sweet Tour.” Jordan’s debut album Home State has accumulated over 500 Million worldwide streams spurred by the success of his recent back-to-back No.1 hit singles “Singles You Up” and “Take It From Me.” Since its release, “Singles You Up” has dominated streaming charts spending over a month on the Spotify US Viral Chart (peaking at No.2) in addition to hitting the Spotify Global Viral Chart and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA. Both tracks are included on Home State as well as Jordan’s current single “Slow Dance In A Parking” (listen HERE) which was No.1 most added at country radio its debut week and continues to climb the country airplay charts.
The accolades continue to pour in for the singer/songwriter after being named Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2018 and Country Aircheck/Mediabase’s Most Heard New Artist of 2018. Jordan just received his first nomination for the CMT Music Awards in the Breakthrough Video of the Year category after winning Best New Country Artist at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in addition to MusicRow’s Breakout Artist of the Year.
Originally from Shreveport, Louisiana, Jordan has made a strong impression on critics and audiences alike with his classic lyric-writing melded with tech-tinged production. After graduating from LSU in 2012 with a degree in Resource Conservation, Jordan moved to Nashville and honed his songwriting craft influenced by his love of lyrically-driven songwriters and genre-defying musicality. While recently back in his hometown, Jordan felt inspired to record a special cover from one of his influences, Van Morrison, listen HERE.
Jordan is currently on the road with Old Dominion as part of the “Make It Sweet Tour” with upcoming stops in Portland, ME, Gilford, NH and Farmingville, NY. He will next join Rascal Flatts on the “Summer Playlist Tour” starting this June. For a full list of tour dates, news, images and more, visit www.jordandavisofficial.com

Jordan Davis (album title) 1 OC: …Home State. :39
“When it came time to name the record, you know, Louisiana is a big part of who I am and I love the fact that I’m from Louisiana and I call Louisiana my home state. One of the main reasons that it’s called that is that this record, the ideas for these songs, the inspiration behind these songs can all be traced back to Louisiana. All those songs [on the record] started in Louisiana, and I thought what better way than to kinda put a line through all of them and tie a bow on this whole record. I thought Louisiana was too much, and I’ve always loved that title, Home State.”
