JORDAN DAVIS RELEASES THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR HIS LATEST HIT, “SLOW DANCE IN A PARKING LOT.”

Jordan Davis releases the music video for his nostalgic new single “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot” with an exclusive People debut. In just a few weeks, “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot” has already cracked Top 40 at country radio, after debuting as the No.1 most added song, and marks Jordan’s fastest rising single to date. “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot” follows Jordan’s back-to-back No.1 hits “Singles You Up” and “Take It From Me.” All three tracks are featured on Jordan’s debut album Home State which has accumulated over 500 Million streams since its release.

Jordan collaborated with director Patrick Tracy for the sentimental video. The story follows a young boy through various life moments that all happen to take place in a parking lot, from playing hockey with friends to dancing with his girlfriend after a football game.

“The parking lot has served as a familiar environment for many pivotal moments throughout one’s life and the descriptive lyrical content of ‘Slow Dance In A Parking Lot’ helps paint the picture of one such moment,” says Patrick Tracy.

“I’m really excited for this music video to come out,” says Jordan. “Patrick did a really great job with the script and I think it really adds another element to how special this song is.”

Jordan currently reigns as Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2018 as well as Country Aircheck/Mediabase’s Most Heard New Artist of 2018.  Earlier this year, Jordan won Best New Country Artist at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in addition to MusicRow’s Breakout Artist of the Year Award.

The Louisiana native just wrapped touring with Old Dominion as part of the “Make It Sweet Tour” and is currently on the road with Rascal Flatts for the “Summer Playlist Tour.” Upcoming stops include Mountain View, CA, Sacramento, CA and Irvine, CA.

Jordan Davis (Slow Dance video) OC: …this song is. :26
“The script that I got for it was so awesome, and I thought it was so perfect. I remember thinking when we were talking about a video for this song, it was gonna be pretty easy, but (director) Patrick (Tracy) did a really, really good job of making it special and making the song something else. I think, for me, I think this is the video that really adds the most to the song for me, compared to ‘Singles You Up’ or ‘Take It From Me.’ I think this kind of adds another element to how special this song is.”

ERIC CHURCH SAYS “WE WERE” FOUND THE PERFECT HOME WITH KEITH URBAN.

You’ve probably heard the story of how Keith Urban recorded his latest hit, “We Were,” without knowing his buddy Eric Church actually co-wrote the song. Eric, who penned the song with Ryan Tyndell and Jeff Hyde, didn’t realize just how perfect the song was for his pal until after Keith recorded it.

“That was the coolest thing for me is I didn’t send Keith the song and say, ‘Here’s a song I wrote.’ He found it, and honestly, it fits him more than it fits me. There’s a line in there about ‘two heartbeats in the moonlight/leather jackets on a back of a Harley.’ I don’t ride a Harley. That’s a line, call it ‘poetic license.’ That’s where it came from. He and Nicole used to do that when they first started dating, and they were touring, they would jump on his Harley and they would put on their leather jackets and they’d go ride up in the countryside before the show. I did not know that until after he cut that song,” says Eric. “I truly believe songs find the path that they’re supposed to find, and that one was supposed to be with him.”

Eric is poised to enter the top of the country charts with his own single, “Some of It.”

Now, as it goes No. 1 in a few weeks, um (laughs) I’m gonna rethink that a little. Naw, it was perfect that he’s the guy that did that and did it better than I could’ve done it. I love hearing it on the radio. It’s fun for me. I came to this town to be a songwriter, so for me, I’m not sure if that’s not as proud as I’ve been as when you get a song cut by somebody else and then it becomes a hit.”

CAYLEE HAMMACK’S FATHER DOES SOMETHING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE SINGER’S MUSIC VIDEO FOR “FAMILY TREE.”

Caylee Hammack’s “Family Tree” video features several friends and family members, most notably her mother with a stack of her own Tupperware, as well as her father, who did something the Georgia-born singer has never really seen before – wear shorts.

“He is the guy with the white beard, kinda looks like Santa, if Santa owned a Harley. He’s wearing fishing lure shorts and flip flops, and I swear to goodness, I don’t know if me or the Good Lord has ever seen his legs. (laughs) That man is more of a Wrangler jeans and steel-toed boots kind of boy, or kind of man,” says Caylee. “But, he put on shorts and flip flops for that video, so he could look all casual with the pink flamingos and beach chair on the front lawn. He’s a trooper.”

The clip for her single was directed by Dano Cerny (Elle King, The Chainsmokers), and it also features her sister, cousins, producers and friends.

Caylee is scheduled to perform at festivals this summer, then joining Dierks Bentley for several dates, as well as hitting the road with Miranda Lambert this fall.
