Award-winning country star Jordan Davis recently got the chance to hang out with several Philadelphia Eagles players, including a defensive tackle who shares the same name. This hilarious meet-up between Jordan Davis and Jordan Davis came about while the singer was visiting the City of Brotherly Love on October 5 as a stop on his current Damn Good Time tour. Luckily, the moment between the two public figures was captured and shared on social media.
The clip opens with the pair meeting for the first time before cutting to Davis on stage, showing off his new Philadelphia Eagles jersey and telling his audience about getting to finally come face-to-face with his name twin.
“He’s Got A Great Name”
“I actually got a chance to go hang out with him a little earlier today. I gotta say, he’s got a great name,” the current CMA Awards nominee joked.
Jordan and Jordan then continued their conversation, as they compared names, facial hair, and even joked about the fact that their Instagram usernames often get mixed up by fans on social media, despite their opposing careers.

Near the end of the video, the “Buy Dirt” singer stepped up for what would be his version of a pre-game interview, acting as if he was drafted by the Eagles. While sporting his brand-new oversized jersey, Davis said that it was “smart” for the Eagles to bring him on the team, seeing as how he’s expecting to be a “menace” out on the field. He also warned other NFL teams to “watch out.”
Once he returned to his true country artist state, he hyped up the Philadelphia team on stage, earning a round of cheers from the football fans in the audience.
Many users took to the comment section to show their love and support for this interaction between the Davis,’ as well as the country star’s support for the team.
Fellow superstar Kane Brown joined the conversations between fans, admitting that being a Georgia Bulldogs fan, he was envious of Davis’ opportunity to get up close and personal with Davis, who won the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship while playing at the University of Georgia.
He wrote, “As a dawg I’m very jealous 🔥.”
Also Met Jason Kelce
In a following post, Davis posed with another popular Philadelphia Eagles player, Jason Kelce.
“Huge thank you to the @philadelphiaeagles for letting me swing by practice and hang👊,” Davis wrote in the caption.
This chance meeting comes in the midst of Davis’ headlining Damn Good Time Tour, which kicked off in August and will run through October 21 with a final show in Las Vegas, NV. However, Davis recently revealed that this won’t be the official end to the tour because in 2024, he will embark on the extended world tour.
This next run of headlining shows will launch on February 2 in Copenhagen, Denmark and continue with stops in several major markets including Amsterdam, London, and Belfast, before returning to tour the US and Canada starting in April. Additionally, he will return to the road with Combs in 2024.
The Louisiana native recently learned that he has been included in the list of nominees for this year’s CMA Award Show. His name appears in three different categories – Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year with “Next Thing You Know.”
While discussing this exciting news and more during his time on the Pupdate with Country Now, Davis explained that on the morning the nominees were revealed, he was enjoying a snooze in the back of his tour. However, his sleep was suddenly disturbed when he was woken up by a friend who couldn’t wait to give him the update.
“I was shocked, especially after last year with the success of ‘Buy Dirt’ at the CMA’s, to kind of turn around and get another Song of the Year nomination,” he pointed out. “But also too, that’s the most I’ve ever been nominated for anything, with three nominations. So I have it on video, unfortunately, I say some words that I don’t want my mom to hear and I’m also half asleep, so I kind of wish I was a little more awake for that one.”
In 2022, he took home the win in this category with his fan-favorite hit, “Buy Dirt,” which has also earned him two other nominations at this particular award show.
“As a songwriter, there’s no greater award than that one. And I even still kind of look back at some of the artists and songs that have won that category before and to even see ‘Buy Dirt’ in there is crazy. Then you add onto it being there with my brother and Matt and Josh who are two of my best friends. But yeah, I think every songwriter, that’s the Mount Everest, and I love the storytelling aspect of country music so much. So to be nominated for that category again, truly it’s awesome,” he shared humbly.
Fans can tune into the 57th Annual CMA Awards on Wednesday, Nov. 8 live on ABC to see if Jordan Davis will be named among this year’s winners.
Until then, he will continue his time on the road with upcoming shows in Mesa, AZ, Bakersfield, CA and Las Vegas, NV.
