After his 2018 album Home State, which featured hits like “Singles You Up,” “Take It from Me,” “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” and more, Jordan Davis is back with a brand new project as a part of this week’s New Music Friday!

The highly-anticipated album is titled Bluebird Days, featuring some of the talented singer-songwriter’s most recent hits, such as “Buy Dirt” with Luke Bryan, “What My World Spins Around,” “Next Thing You Know” and 14 other spectacular songs.

Some other notable tracks include “Fishing Spot,” an emotional song that pays tribute to his grandfather, “Bluebird Days,” a track that highlights his parents’ heartbreaking divorce, and more, ultimately causing the whole album to tug on the listener’s heart strings

UMG Nashville revealed that throughout Bluebird Days, the Shreveport, Louisiana native “digs deep into his own experiences for a collection that offers a wide range of emotions, meditations, and memories, matched by his signature sound, blending traditional and contemporary genres and styles. With a young family and a career that’s rapidly on the rise, he was still surprised to see the depth that this material was reaching.”

If ALL of this isn’t enough proof, then take it from us that Jordan Davis’ brand new project is truly as raw and real as it gets — It is a must-listen!
