Jordan Davis Tops Charts With “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot”

It was a dream of becoming a songwriter that first brought Shreveport, Louisiana native Jordan Davis
to Nashville in 2012. A lot has changed for 2020 ACM Best New Male
Artist of the Year nominee since moving to Music City. From signing a
record deal and racking up over one billion streams of his debut album Home State to touring the country playing for fans and now notching his third consecutive No. 1 single with “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot,” one thing has remained constant for the breakthrough hitmaker, his love for the craft of songwriting.

When Davis sat down with co-writer Lonnie Fowler for a writing session
in 2015 – their first together – he was feeling creatively spent after a
week of writing daily. But as the two got to know each other,
discussing hometowns and first dates, it was Fowler’s story of his first
date with his now-wife that became the foundation for the already Gold
Certified “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot.”

“When Lonnie told me the story of that first date with his wife…he was
taking her home from their college formal and didn’t want the night to
end, so he pulled into a parking lot and put on Garth Brooks’ ‘She’s
Every Woman’ and asked her for one last dance. I just thought ‘man, that
captures everything country music is about right there,’” shares the
man Billboard and Rolling Stone have dubbed an “Artist to Watch.”

Davis continues, “Sharing the truth in three and a half minutes…that is
what a good country song does. It is what we wanted to do with ‘Slow
Dance,’ tell this real and honest love story. It’s been great to see
that authenticity resonate with fans. From slow dancing at our shows to
sharing their own videos on socials slow dancing in parking lots,
they’ve really embraced it. Big thanks to Lonnie for letting me share
his story and to the fans and country radio for their continued support.
I couldn’t be more proud or thankful.”

The song Taste of Country called “a down-to-earth love song,” is the third single from Davis’s debut album Home State.
It marks his third consecutive No. 1, following the 2x Platinum
Certified “Singles You Up” and Platinum Certified “Take It From Me.”

And as Forbes recently noted, “the hits just keep coming” for
Davis. This success follows a string of recent releases including the
deeply personal “Detours,” “Trouble Town” which also served as the name
of his just wrapped headlining Trouble Town Tour,  a
collaboration with pop star Julia Michaels called “Cool Anymore,” as
well as an Amazon Original cover of Jo Dee Messina’s 1996 hit “Heads
Carolina, Tails California.”
