Jordan Davis Set to Release New EP, Buy Dirt – May 21st

Jordan Davis is climbing the country music airplay chart with his hit song “Almost Maybes” – now the announcement comes that he’ll have a new project arriving in 3 weeks – May 21st!

Jordan’s EP, Buy Dirt, features 8 tracks – 7 of which he co-wrote.

That 8th track he didn’t write is actually a song co-written by John Prine for John’s debut album, but it was another John…John Denver who made the song popular in the early 1970s, “Blow Up Your TV.”

Buy Dirt Track Listing:

  1. “Blow Up Your TV” (Written by John Prine and Jeffrey Bradford Kent)
  2. “Buy Dirt” (feat. Luke Bryan) (Written by Jordan Davis, Jacob Davis, Josh Jenkins, Matt Jenkins)
  3. “Need To Not” (Written by Jordan Davis, Jacob Davis, Josh Jenkins, Matt Jenkins)
  4. “Drink Had Me” (Written by Jordan Davis, Ashley Gorley, Emily Weisband, Paul DiGiovanni)
  5. “Lose You” (Written by Jordan Davis, Paul DiGiovanni, Josh Kerr, Josh Dorr)
  6. “Almost Maybes” (Written by Jordan Davis, Jesse Frasure, Hillary Lindsey)
  7. “I Still Smoked” (Written by Jordan Davis, Randy Montana, Jonathan Singleton)
  8. “Trying” (Written by Jordan Davis, Ashley Gorley, Emily Weisband, Paul DiGiovanni)

The music on the new EP was inspired by the last year…Jordan explains, “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.”

Jordan has a very special guest on the title track, “Buy Dirt” — Luke Bryan.

He shares how Luke got involved with the project, “We sat around the fire after a golf tournament one day, smoking cigars and talking about everything BUT music. 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’.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
