Rising country artist Brandon Davis has faith that he has an even brighter future ahead of him, and in his latest release, “I Can Wait,” he’s showcasing that patience is vital for achieving those goals one day.
It’s easy to constantly be looking ahead and striving towards the next step, but Davis is making an effort to slow down and appreciate what the present time has to offer him, his wife, and their four children. The song begins by reflecting on his 10-year-old self and his aspiration to be like his father, who once opened for Garth Brooks on tour in 1988.
“I remember way back when I was 10 / Trying like hell to be my old man / Big shoes to fill and I ain’t filled ’em yet,” he sings in the opening lyrics.
Co-written by Davis alongside Josh Bricker and Josh Byrd, this nostalgic tune is inspirational as it pumps the breaks on life’s fast-paced status and instead, places the focus on enjoying the journey of reaching for the stars.
“Something’s better than nothing / Just a little blessing, a little reason why / We should keep going ’cause we never know when / What we’ve been waiting for and praying for / Is around the corner coming / ‘Cause something’s better than nothing,” he continues in the chorus.
He first started sharing clips of the new song on social media, just a few weeks after he dropped his song, “Wheels On The Truck.” Just hearing a snippet of his latest release sparked great anticipation among his fans.
“Words can’t describe how much this song means to me,” he said.
Since he sings about manifesting some of his biggest dreams, like playing at the Grand Ole Opry and opening for Garth Brooks, he’s encouraged fans to do the same by posting their own goals using this song.
“This is an exciting moment for me. I get to share something with you all that is incredible. It’s out of this world. And I’ve been waiting so long to be able to put this out here,” Davis gushed in his announcement on social media. “I’ve been writing a lot of songs over the past couple of years, and here recently, in the past six to eight months, it has been an incredible amount of just, songs that have so much meaning to me, so many stories that I want to be able to tell.”
He added, “y’all have seen some of the stories we’ve already told through ‘Destiny,’ and through ‘Step by Step,’ and even ‘Hearts Don’t Rust,” he continued. “This way that we’re trying to connect with you through these stories and songs…we’ve got a big announcement today that is a continuation of such an amazing journey that I am so, so thankful that we have had such an incredible run on thus far and it’s only getting started.”
Brandon Davis’s impeccable talent and heartwarming personality continue to claim the hearts of country music fans. His resilience has even resulted in several sold-out shows across the country. This summer, Davis was personally invited by Tim McGraw to join the McGraw Tour 2022 and now, the rising artist is wrapping up his own Step by Step Tour. His next date is set for Friday, Oct. 14 in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
