Jordan Davis to hit UM’s Adams Center next June
Western Montana has scored a big one here. Jordan Davis, still riding high from his second chart-topper, But Dirt, has announced the University of Montana's Adams Events Center as a stop on his second career headlining tour.
The following is a release from Logjam Presents:
Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, in 1988, country singer Jordan Davis has Southern music roots that run deep—not only is his brother also a country singer, but his uncle, Stan Davis, wrote multiple hits for Billboard-topping country singer Tracy Lawrence. It would be putting it mildly to say that Davis grew up around music, but, ironically, he didn’t pursue it as a career until after finishing his degree in conservation at Louisiana State University. Moving to Nashville in 2012, Davis would be exposed to a bright, hard-hitting world of singer-songwriters, citing John Prine and Jason Isbell among his favorites. Synthesizing his influences, Davis worked to come up with a smart, R&B-flavored brand of country rock, and he signed with Universal Music Group Nashville in 2016.
Davis’ playful, romantic 2017 single “Singles You Up” reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Country Airplay chart and No. 4 on the U.S. Country chart, eventually going Platinum. The song also wound up on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart. Davis’ second single, “Take It From Me,” a feel-good tune anchored by big, twangy riffs, has also performed well since its 2018 release. A singer-songwriter at his core, Davis filled out his debut studio album, ‘Home State,’ with 10 more great songs, cowriting each one with pop rocker Paul DiGiovanni (Boys Like Girls), who also produced the album. ‘Home State’ bears a pop-country energy that brings to mind musicians like Sam Hunt and Jason Aldean, and it reached No. 6 on Billboard’s U.S. Top Country Albums. In 2017, Davis toured with country rocker Kip Moore’s Plead the Fifth Tour. Davis embarked on his first headlining tour, the White Wine and Whiskey Tour, supported by Jillian Jacqueline, in February 2018, which took him to all corners of the U.S.
Opening acts are Mitchell Tenpenny and Ashley Cooke.
