If you’ve turned on country radio in the last couple of months, the chances are that you’ve heard Jordan Davis songs on repeat.
The Louisiana native moved to Nashville in 2012 to fulfill the dream of becoming a songwriter. But his publisher noticed something special in his voice as well as his songs. Today, Davis transformed himself from a newcomer into a countrywide chart-topper. His career has taken off over the past couple of years at the most incredible speed.
So, without further ado, we’re giving you the best hits of Jordan Davis so far. Keep on scrolling below to find out.
1. Buy Dirt
Davis teamed up with Luke Bryan for a song he wrote with his brother Jacob Davis along with the brother duo of songwriters Josh and Matt Jenkins. “Buy Dirt” is a heartwarming reminder of the key to a happy life.
Davis said the whole idea came a few months into the global pandemic when we were all thinking about life’s bigger picture.
2. Slow Dance In A Parking Lot
Amazing as it may seem, but this romantic ballad, “Slow Dance In a Parking Lot,” actually relieves Davis’ co-writer’s first date with his first wife, where they pulled over into a parking lot and began slow dancing to a Garth Brooks’ song.
3. Singles You Up
Davis has a simple explanation for the song “Singles You Up,” and that’s about patiently hanging around and waiting in the wings for your love interest, should she become available.
4. Need to Not
Davis finds himself wrestling with the loneliness of a broken heart in this grooving track. It captures an internal struggle that we’re pretty familiar with – and that’s when your heart tells you to just go and get back together after a breakup.
5. Almost Maybes
Released as the lead single off Davis’ self-titled six-track project, the uptempo tune is a cheerful nod to all those great, terrible and indifferent romances that didn’t work out yet led you to find your true love.
6. Take It From Me
“Take It From Me” was supposed to be Davis’ debut single after signing with MCA Nashville – he even fought hard for it to be possible. However, his team has other things in mind. Still, it’s a special song for Davis as he believed that it was “a little more me.”
7. Cool Anymore
Isn’t it amazing how you no longer have to pretend to be cool and just be yourself whenever you’re with the person you love? This is what this song is all about.
8. Going’ Round
This melodic, catchy song – thanks to its splendid instrumentation – goes round in a circle that centers on different facets. It finds Davis obsessed with a taken girl, who turned out to be his old flame. And now that he found out she’s facing a problem with the man she’s with, Davis can’t help but wish they’d get back together.
9. Church In A Chevy
Another song Davis co-wrote with brothers Josh and Matt Jenkins – his core group of songwriters, “Church In A Chevy,” tells of a spiritual encounter in a truck. It was inspired by how the pandemic put spiritual gatherings into a total pause.
The reflective tone celebrates the wrong turns that ultimately put life on the right track. It was inspired by the road to finding his wife, Kristen O’Connor.
11. Lose You
With many couples breaking up and growing apart, Davis promises to do whatever it takes to hold on to the love of his life in this romantic late-night jam, “Lose You.”
Davis admits that he’s often selfish, and he doesn’t feel guilty about it! In the song, the country singer cleverly explains how he wants to keep his girl to himself. She may already have made plans, but all he longs for is to stay in bed with her all day.
“I guess it’s pretty honest to who I am,” Davis said of the song, explaining that it happens whenever he gets off the road after a long touring stretch.
13. Tough to Tie Down
We all know relationships don’t always come easy, and these complications can be heard on “Tough to Tie Down,” which finds Davis singing about a woman that’s “good at lovin’ and better at leavin’.” Though he finds it quite challenging to get the woman to commit, he croons of how he will never stop loving her “as long as this world keeps spinning ’round.”
14. Leaving New Orleans
While Davis’ rhythmic singing style often reminds country fans of Sam Hunt, he set himself apart through exceptional songwriting and unique storytelling – something that’s very evident on “Leaving New Orleans.” In the song, Davis describes the scenic city that helped mold his diverse sound. However, everywhere he goes reminds him of his then-lover, so he makes the difficult decision of leaving the city.
15. Blow Up Your TV
Ending this list with Davis’ cover of John Prine’s “Blow Up Your TV,” which is not only a great tribute to the legendary singer-songwriter but is a good reminder to go off the grid for a little while.
