Today is a great day for new music in the country world. Rising artist and one of our 2018 Artists to Watch, Jordan Davis just released another new song entitled “Detours,” a follow-up, “Trouble Town” and “Cool Anymore.”
The new track may be one of Davis’ most personal to date. Co-written by the singer with his brother Jacob Davis and Dave Turnbull, Davis takes fans through the ups and downs in his life’s journey. The first verse depicts his experience as a little bit of a rebel. He sings “I was a renegade ragtop, revvin’ up an engine,” adding later a vulnerable time in his life, “Parents got divorced, kinda dog that would bite ya / And I’d love ‘e and I’d leave ‘em it was what it was.”
Unexpectedly, Davis switches gears in the second verse, sharing with fans that meeting his wife was the turnaround point in his life. The song made a sweet turn into a long song for his life partner, sharing how they met, as long as, all the reasons that she makes him a better person.
“Sittin’ with a group of friends and sippin’ on a glass of red / And I don’t remember what I said but she wrote her number down / All I ever wanted but never knew I needed / She’s the dotted lines and every sign that led me straight to Jesus / Was a voice that made me hit the brakes, slow it down, have some faith”
Arguably this is one of the best Davis songs to date. He lays his heart on the line for fans to bear witness to, while remaining sonically pleasing. We hope to hear more tunes like this from Davis, as we anticipate his sophomore record.
