They say things happen in threes and for Jordan Davis that rings true. The singer released his latest EP, Buy Dirt, announced that he and his wife are expecting their second child together (a boy!) and now, the singer has plans to embark on a headlining tour.
The Louisiana native will hit the road in September and plans to visit a number of small venues affected by the devastating coronavirus pandemic.
“This (Exit/In) is where I played my first Nashville full band show,” says Davis in a press release. “This place is super special and super woven into the Nashville music scene. COVID hurt a lot of these small music venues and I wanted to help bring shows back and get us back on the road.”
Davis will be joined on the road by Sony Music Nashville’s Seaforth and rising singer, MacKenzie Porter. Porter recently collaborated with Dustin Lynch on his latest single, “Thinking ‘Bout You.”
The singer himself recently debuted his eight-song EP, Buy Dirt, featuring a collaboration with Luke Bryan on the title track. The project let Davis focus on who he is as a person and an artist and return to his roots.
“I’ve always loved artists who take risks,” he shared previously. “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.”
Davis and his wife Kristen also shared the news that they are expecting their second child together in September. The “Singles You Up” singer admitted to PEOPLE that he almost forgot to share that his family was expanding. “I kind of forgot,” he said with a laugh. “My wife came downstairs one morning, and she was like, ‘Hey, are you going to tell anybody that I’m pregnant?’ And I was like, ‘You know what? We should probably do that.’ I mean, September is not that far away.”
