MusicRow has released its 2023 Artist Roster print issue, featuring ASCAP songwriter and MCA Nashville recording artist Jordan Davis on the cover.
Having solidified himself as one of the industry’s top singer-songwriters, 2022/23 marked a breakthrough year for Jordan Davis. In February 2023, Davis released his second full-length album, Bluebird Days, which earned the Shreveport, Louisiana native rave reviews as well as a RIAA Gold-certification. The CMA and NSAI Award winner recently earned his first ACM Male Vocalist nomination (2023) and his hit single, “Next Thing You Know,” continues to climb the charts and resonate with fans. Produced by Paul DiGiovanni, Bluebird Days features 17 songs total, including his fifth career No. 1 hit, “What My World Spins Around” and his double-Platinum, multi-week No. 1 “Buy Dirt” (feat. Luke Bryan), which won numerous accolades including CMA and NSAI Song of the Year and earned ACM, AMA, Billboard and iHeart Music Award nominations.
Davis previously notched three consecutive No. 1 hits off of his Gold-certified album, Home State, including the double-Platinum certified “Singles You Up” as well as the Platinum-certified “Take It From Me” and “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot.” In 2019, Davis was awarded Best New Country Artist at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. He is a two-time nominee for ACM New Male Artist of the Year and was named Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2018. Davis has amassed more than four billion streams worldwide and appeared on Ellen, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live and more. He recently announced his “Damn Good Time Tour,” which will kick off late summer and includes a headlining show at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater as well as tour dates across the country.

Featured by The Tennessean, American Songwriter, Billboard and more, Bluebird Days debuted to early rave reviews, with Billboard noting, “Davis soars on Bluebird Days” and Entertainment Focus echoing, “Jordan Davis comes of age on new album Bluebird Days and shows the world the type of mature, meaningful and melodic songwriter he is.” Bluebird Days is a “rich, deep, meaningful album” (Entertainment Focus) that digs deep into Davis’ personal experiences and offers a wide range of emotions, meditations, and memories, matched by his signature sound blending traditional and contemporary genres and styles.
