Like the rest of the music-making world, Jordan Davis was forced to cancel his spring and summer gigs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But there’s been a silver lining for the Louisiana native, who has scored three consecutive No. 1 singles with “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” (April 2020), “Take It From Me” (March 2019) and “Singles You Up” (April 2018).
Jordan and wife Kristen welcomed their first child—a baby girl named Eloise Larkin—in November 2019. As Jordan told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, being able to spend time with his eight-month-old has been “really special.”
“You know, for me, I was there for her first solid foods a couple of weeks ago,” says Jordan. “I looked at my calendar when she was mashing up avocados and throwing food all over the kitchen, and I was like, ‘Man, I would’ve been somewhere in Arizona, playing a show.’ You know, the silver lining is getting to catch those moments, and, you know, reading her stories before she goes to bed is a lot fun. Just being home has been really special—they’re just growing so much during this period.”
All three aforementioned No. 1 singles are from Jordan’s 2018 debut album, Home State. In May, Jordan released a six-song, self-titled EP, featuring new single, “Almost Maybes,” which you can hear below.
