Country star, Jordan Davis, will make his debut appearance on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Friday (January 14th). Davis will mark his official debut with a performance of his Platinum-Certified hit single, “Buy Dirt.” Check local listings for air dates and times.
Jordan is excited about playing the show for the first time. “You know, that’s one of those calls that you want, I mean…you know what Fallon has done for so many musicians, the spotlight that he’s able to shine on songs and up-and-coming talent,” he says. “So, just to really be honest with you, to have my name in that running is pretty crazy, much less to get the call to come and do it. So, you know I’m excited. My band’s excited. I’m grateful for the opportunity and looking forward to getting up and playing.”
Featuring country superstar Luke Bryan, “Buy Dirt” is the vulnerable title track and centerpiece of Davis’ powerful Buy Dirt EP. “Buy Dirt” is Davis’ fastest moving single to date, currently No. 4 and climbing on the country radio charts. Amassing more than 250 million streams worldwide, the song has been inside the Top 200 country streaming chart all 32 weeks since release and inside the Top 5 for 14 weeks. “Buy Dirt” received a nomination for Musical Event of the Year on the 55th Annual CMA Awards, Davis’ first CMA nomination of his career.
