Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Jordan Davis was surrounded by music from a young age as both of his parents played instruments and he sang in his church choir. The middle of three children, he learned to play guitar around the age of 12 in between baseball and football games. Jordan's uncle, Stan Paul Davis, was a professional songwriter who composed two hits for Tracy Lawrence 1992's "Today's Lonely Fool", and 1997's number two hit "Better Man, Better Off". After graduating Louisiana State University with an Environmental Science degree, Jordan moved to Nashville in 2012, and secured a recording contract with Universal Music Group Nashville in 2016.
Davis's debut single, "Singles You Up", came out in mid-2017. It hit number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in April 2018. His debut album, “Home State”, was released around the same time and the second single "Take It from Me", reached number two on the Country Airplay chart in March 2019. The album's third single, "Slow Dance in a Parking Lot", also topped the Country Airplay chart.
Another new single called "Almost Maybes", wound up climbing into the Country Airplay Top Ten in 2020, it featured on a self-titled EP that appeared in May of that year. A second EP, “Buy Dirt”, arrived in May of 2021 featuring the title-track duet with Luke Bryan; the single hit number one on the Hot Country Songs Chart. "Buy Dirt", also went on to be named Song of the Year at the 2022 CMA Awards.
