Jacob Davis has signed an exclusive, worldwide publishing agreement with Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville. Davis earned his first No. 1 as a songwriter in 2019, as a co-writer on his brother Jordan Davis’ hit “Take It From Me,” which has earned more than 250 million streams. He also co-wrote Jordan Davis’ song “Detours.”

Terry Wakefield, Senior Vice President A&R, UMPG Nashville, said: “I have been friends with Jacob over the last four years, and I’m grateful we now have the opportunity to work together. Jacob is a dynamic songwriter and storyteller. We are thrilled to have him as part of the Universal family.”

Davis commented, “I’m over to moon be a part of the team that Troy [Tomlinson], Terry and rest of the staff is building at Universal. The excitement of that team overwhelmed me the first time I walked into the building…and it feels good to call it home.”
