It’s lucky number seven for Jordan Davis, who earned his seventh No.1 at country radio this week with his latest hit, “Tucson Too Late,” which topped both the Country Aircheck/Mediabase and Billboard Country charts this week. 

Written by brothers Jordan Davis and Jacob Davis alongside Matt Jenkins and Josh Jenkins, the same songwriting quartet who penned Davis’ award-winning hit, “Buy Dirt,” “Tucson Too Late” marks the fourth consecutive No.1 off Davis’ platinum-selling album, Bluebird Days. 

This project also includes the multi-Platinum and multi-week No. 1 hits, “Buy Dirt” (4x Platinum), “What My World Spins Around” (2x Platinum), and “Next Thing You Know” (2x Platinum). 

“Thank you to everyone at country radio, my team, and thank you to the songwriters,” shares Davis of the milestone. “I will never take for granted the support you’ve all shown over and over again, especially across this latest album. The risks it’s allowed me to take in my writing and music, and the creative space that freedom has kept me in, is invaluable, and I cannot thank you all enough. Simply put, you all have changed my life, and I can’t wait to share more music with everyone soon.”

The No.1 single comes just in time for the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards, where the country star is nominated for four ACMs, including ACM Single of the Year, ACM Song of the Year (Artist & Songwriter nominations), and ACM Visual Media Of The Year for “Next Thing You Know.” 

Davis admits seeing his name alongside his peers is never lost on him and is something he does not take for granted.

“Every time these award shows come around and I see my name in those categories, I remember just thinking, when I moved to town, all I wanted was one number one song. That was my goal,” he reflected during a recent conversation with Country Now. “I thought that if I could just move to Nashville and have a number one song, that everything would be alright. So I’m blessed, and it’s crazy to think that we have another ACM and ‘Next Thing You Know’ is up for Song of the Year, which is so special to me. I’m grateful for it.”

The Louisiana native will appear during the star-studded ACM Awards broadcast as a presenter, and the night before, he will perform alongside Parker McCollum at Parker McCollum and Friends: ACM Lifting Lives LIVE. 6x ACM reigning Group of the Year Old Dominion and this year’s first-time ACM nominees Ashley Cooke and Kameron Marlowe are also confirmed to perform. 

Following the ACM Awards, Jordan Davis will return to the road on his headlining Damn Good Time Tour. He’ll also join Luke Combs on select dates of the Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old throughout the summer. 

Having secured nominations and victories at various prestigious award shows such as Billboard, CMT, AMA, iHeart, ACM, and CMA, Davis continues to solidify his place as one of country music’s newest superstars.
