Jordan Davis (ASCAP)

Abe Olman Scholarship, 2016

Shreveport, LA seemed to be the perfect backdrop for artist/writer, Jordan Davis, to call home. “Shreveport is just big enough for me to understand what city life was like and small enough to understand that lifestyle.” Davis, like most boys, grew up playing sports, excelling in football and baseball in high school. “I got offers to play baseball from several different universities, but I didn’t want to do that. I knew that I wanted to write and play music,” says Davis. After graduating from Louisiana State University, Davis’ passion and love for music is what made him move to Nashville.

When you hear Jordan Davis sing, you instantly know that he made the right decision. “I grew up with an iPod, it had everything from John Prine to Jay-Z to George Straight to Kings Of Leon.” Listening to Jordan’s music, you know that all of those influences in his life helped to shape his style.

In 2015 he signed with Ole Music Publishing and Universal Music Group Nashville. Jordan has been touring non-stop the past year and has opened for Chase Rice, Randy Rogers Band, The Cadillac Three, David Nail and more. He is currently in the studio working on his debut album.
