Jordan Davis earned his fifth career No.1 this week as his latest single, “What My World Spins Around,” tops both the Billboard and MediaBase Country Airplay charts.
Davis was duck hunting in Arkansas when he received the good news and took to social media to share a message of gratitude.
“Just found out that ‘What My World Spins Around’ is my fifth number one single. Thank you so much country radio. Thank y’all for supporting this song,” he shared. “It’s crazy. I can’t believe I’m sitting here celebrating my fifth number one… Thank y’all so much.”
Davis co-wrote the song alongside Ryan Hurd and Matt Dragstrem and first debuted the track during an appearance on The Today Show.
“What My World Spins Around” garnered an immediate reaction from fans, something Davis was quick to take notice of.
“I don’t think I’ve ever had a song take off like ‘World Spins,’” the Louisiana native shared with Country Now and other media outlets last year. “Ever since we teased it the first time, I feel like I get messages weekly asking, ‘when’s that song coming out you put out a couple months ago?’ It definitely gives you a little more confidence going into it.”
While writing the song, the co-writers drew upon their life experiences and thought about how the things that are important to them changed over time.
“The things that my world revolved around were sports, football, huntin’ and fishing. That was priority number one in everything. When me and Kristen had just started dating, it was music…That probably took priority sometimes,” he shared.
As a father of two, Davis understands how one’s priorities begin to shift after having children. So, he drew upon his personal life when crafting the lyrics.
“To have ‘What My World Spins Around,’ it could be the kiddos showing up, but I’m kinda like, everything I do now is because of them and for Kristen,” he added. “I think that’s one reason I like this song so much, it’s such a look back on what I used to be about to what I am now. I think Matt and Ryan both can relate to that as well.”
The song hit the top of the charts just weeks before the release of Jordan Davis’ brand new album, Bluebird Days. The project, out February 17, will feature “What My World Spins Around,” as well as previously released tracks “Next Thing You Know,” “Midnight Crisis” featuring Danielle Bradbery, “Part of It,” and more.
Davis says the project reflects his current life.
“It’s been an evolution, and not just from a songwriting standpoint,” Davis shared about the project and teaming up with Producer Paul DiGiovanni. “Everything matches the song…letting the song be a song and letting the lyrics lead it. Nothing feels forced. To me, it’s an album expressing exactly where I’m at right now.”
Davis has a busy year planned for 2023. Soon, he’ll be hitting the road with Thomas Rhett on the Canadian leg of the Bring The Bar To You Tour. The trek kicks off in Vancouver on February 9, 2023 and will visit various cities around Canada through February 25.
Jordan Davis will then hop over the pond for C2C Festival. He’ll also visit Australia this spring.
Bluebird Days will be released on Friday, February 17. The album is available for pre-order now.
