Jordan Davis has experienced quite a few major life changes in recent years: the Louisiana native moved to Nashville, started writing songs, decided to pursue a career as an artist, earned a chart-topping song, got married and became a father. While each new beginning has left a mark on Davis in some way, nothing has impacted him more than becoming a husband and father and that’s all documented in his brand new song, “Detours.”
Written by Davis alongside his brother Jacob Davis and Dave Turnbull, “Detours” has become a fan-favorite as Davis has been playing the song during his live show for quite some time. The reflective track finds the rising star looking back on life’s decisions and mistakes and how all of the turns and detours we take end up leading us to where we’re all meant to be.
“Yeah, I lost my way/ Damn near lost my mind/ Pedal to the metal let the devil lead me blind I was way outside the lines/ Yeah and I got way off track/ Took some wrong turns lookin’ back/ It’s been one helluva ride in my rearview/ And I thank the good Lord/ For the detours/ To you,” Davis sings throughout the chorus.
“This song is probably one of my favorites I’ve ever written,” shares Davis. “My life has changed so much since I moved to Nashville. From meeting Kristen, getting married and having Eloise to signing a record deal, landing back to back No. 1s and touring the country playing for fans, I pinch myself every day that this is my life. I’m so blessed and so grateful for all of the detours that led me to today.”
“Detours” is the latest release from Davis, who recently turned heads with “Cool Anymore,” a duet with Julia Michaels. His latest single, “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot,” is currently in the Top 5 at country radio.
Davis, a 2020 ACM Best New Male Artist of the Year nominee, will go live on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram on Tuesday, March 31, and Wednesday, April 1, at 4 p.m. CT each day to chat with fans and perform.
