Jordan Davis is back at the top of the charts this week, this time with his latest single, “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot.”
The sentimental song was co-written by Davis alongside Lonnie Fowler in 2015. “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” came to fruition after Fowler shared the romantic story of his first date with his now-wife.
“When Lonnie told me the story of that first date with his wife…he was taking her home from their college formal and didn’t want the night to end, so he pulled into a parking lot and put on Garth Brooks’ ‘She’s Every Woman’ and asked her for one last dance. I just thought ‘man, that captures everything country music is about right there,’” Davis explained.
Embracing the honest storytelling that country music is known for, the pair set out to write a song they hoped fans would connect with.
“Sharing the truth in three and a half minutes…that is what a good country song does. It is what we wanted to do with ‘Slow Dance,’ tell this real and honest love story,” he continued. “It’s been great to see that authenticity resonate with fans. From slow dancing at our shows to sharing their own videos on socials slow dancing in parking lots, they’ve really embraced it. Big thanks to Lonnie for letting me share his story and to the fans and country radio for their continued support. I couldn’t be more proud or thankful.”
“Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” is the third single from Davis’ debut album, Home State. It marks his third consecutive chart-topping single, following “Singles You Up” and “Take It From Me.”
