Event Description

Emerging country star Jordan Davis is a new voice in the country scene and has seen incredible success coming on the back of two hit singles from his 2018 debut album ''Home State''. His first single ''Singles You Up'' took the country airwaves by storm, quickly reaching #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. ''Singles You Up'' even found success on Spotify’s all-genre Global Viral 50 chart. Davis then quickly scored another hit single with ''Take It From Me'' which peaked in the top 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts. Jordan Davis is a Shreveport-born, Nashville-weathered creative soul with his feet firmly planted in two different eras. The imagery in his songs relies on the same specificity behind such classic, lyrically- driven songwriters as John Prine, Jim Croce and Bob McDill. But the tech-tinged production and silvery phrasing in those same songs embodies the genre-defying musicality of such current acts as Eric Church, Sam Hunt and Lady Antebellum. With a creative foot in two places, Davis is well positioned to make a long-term connection. His songs are so musically engaging that they easily attract attention. But they’re also deep enough to hold a listener through repeated exposure. Some of that is accomplished through the sense of physical place woven into his stories. By melding classic lyric-writing with modern musical texture, Davis is staking out his own spot on the creative map. The cool melodies and understated delivery bring you in. The soul in his characters keep you in place…in Jordan Davis’ place. The concert is made possible, in part, by the John and Alice Butler Endowment for the Arts at the University of Dubuque. Radio sponsor support for Jordan Davis is provided exclusively by 97.7 Country WGLR-FM, a Queen B station.
