Jordan Davis is set to release a brand new, eight-song EP and he recruited a country superstar to join him on the project. 

Davis’ Buy Dirt is set to release on Friday, May 21 and reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, Luke Bryan, lends his vocals to the project’s title track. 

The EP serves as the follow-up to the Louisiana native’s 2020 self-titled EP and his debut album, Home State

“I’ve always loved artists who take risks,” Davis shared in a release. “I’m in a different spot in my life than I was when I released Home State. We all are! 2020 was a tough time for everyone. I was able to use that time to re-center some things in my world, and I didn’t want those lessons to go to waste. I wanted to create something special. The best way to that was to write honestly, and we did a lot of that on this record.”

The idea to incorporate Bryan came after the singer/songwriters met at an awards show and later crossed paths while golfing. 

“We sat around the fire after a golf tournament one day, smoking cigars and talking about everything but music,” Davis recalled. “That conversation always stuck with me. Luke isn’t just a great entertainer; he’s a great Dad, a great husband, and a great friend, too. That’s what ‘Buy Dirt’ embodies. When I wrote ‘Buy Dirt,’ I knew he could relate to the song’s message. I took a chance and asked him to join me on the recording, and he said yes.”

Buy Dirt was produced by Paul DiGiovanni and features seven tracks co-written by Davis. The only outside cut is the John Prine-inspired “Blow Up Your TV.”

Davis’ current single, “Almost Maybes,” is currently Top 10 on the country radio charts. The country hitmaker will return to the road this fall on Kane Brown’s Blessed and Free Tour.
