Jordan Davis has announced his new EP, Buy Dirt, coming 21st May.
Davis co-wrote every song on the Paul DiGiovanni-produced EP, except for the John Prine-inspired “Blow Up Your TV,” who is a major influence on Davis and his music.
“I’ve always loved artists who take risks”, says Davis. “I’m in a different spot in my life than I was when I released Home State. We all are! 2020 was a tough time for everyone. I was able to use that time to recenter some things in my world, and I didn’t want those lessons to go to waste. I wanted to create something special. The best way to that was to write honestly, and we did a lot of that on this record”.
Luke Bryan lends his vocals on the title track – “We sat around the fire after a golf tournament one day, smoking cigars and talking about everything but music”, Davis recalls. “That conversation always stuck with me. Luke isn’t just a great entertainer; he’s a great Dad, a great husband, and a great friend, too. That’s what ‘Buy Dirt’ embodies. When I wrote ‘Buy Dirt,’ I knew he could relate to the song’s message. I took a chance and asked him to join me on the recording, and he said yes”.
