Initially, Jordan didn't plan to pursue music. He graduated from LSU Baton Rouge with a degree in resource conservation, but once he received encouragement from his brother to head to Nashville, he decided to pack up and move to the Music City in 2012. In 2015 he landed a publishing deal with ole Rights Management, and in February 2016 he signed with UMG Nashville. During that year he began collaborating with Paul DiGiovanni -- a guitarist who worked with Dan + Shay and Hunter Hayes -- and started work on his first album. Following the success of "Singles You Up," which climbed to number five on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, Davis began issuing a stream of singles in advance of his first album. Home State, his full-length debut, arrived in March 2018, helping to push "Singles You Up" to number one on Country Airplay. Later that year, "Take It from Me" made it to number two on the same chart, while "Slow Dance in a Parking Lot" topped the Country Airplay chart in 2019.
Davis released "Trouble Town," his first post-Home State single, in 2019, but it didn't chart, nor did the Julia Michaels duet "Cool Anymore." "Almost Maybes" wound up climbing the charts in 2020, anchoring the eponymous EP that appeared in May of that year. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
