“Buy Dirt,” co-written by Davis alongside his brother, Jacob Davis, and frequent collaborators Josh Jenkins and Matt Jenkins, is Davis’ fourth career No.1.
“This is the most special song I have released,” Davis previously shared. “From writing it with my brother and two of my best friends, to having Luke want to be a part of it…it’s going to be hard to top. To me this song is about faith, family, and friends. It’s a reminder to myself to always keep those top priority and in that order. It has been awesome to see so many people connect with that message.”
Davis recently announced his headlining Buy Dirt Tour with special guest Tenille Arts. Fans can visit his official website for details.
