“This is exactly the record I want to put out. I don’t know what’s going to happen with it, but I can at least tell you that the one certainty I do have about this record, is I’m proud of it.” – Jordan Davis
To bring Jordan Davis to that admission has been a life’s journey. In stepping back with country music’s biggest stars to emerge in recent years of his latest album Bluebird Days, he tells not only the magic of a song like CMA Song of the Year “Buy Dirt,” but of the evolution of Jordan Davis the person, the songwriter, and the artist.
Sometimes, a popular song becomes more than just a hit—it turns into a phenomenon. And that’s what happened with “Buy Dirt,” Davis’ 2021 duet with Luke Bryan. It reached Number One on the Hot Country Songs chart and was one of the Top Five most streamed country songs in both 2021 and 2022. That kind of success brings expectations, but—as Davis discovered when he set to work on his follow-up album Bluebird Days—it can also lead to a new sense of possibility.
“There’s pressure, definitely,” he says. “It’s not about trying to recreate ‘Buy Dirt,’ but we can approach songs like we approached that one, and that’s to write something that people are going to feel, and not just hear.”
