2020 ACM Best New Male Artist of the Year nomineeJordan Davishas seen major life changes both personally and professionally since moving to Music City in 2012. The Shreveport, Louisiana native’s journey to pursue a career as a songwriter first has taken several detours along the way that have included discovering a passion for performing and taking the stage as an artist as well as getting married and welcoming a new baby girl to the world. The latter serves as the inspiration for his new song “Detours,” a deeply personal track for the MCA Nashville recording artist who was inspired by his chance meeting with wife Kristen. Listen HERE.
“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.”
Written alongside his brother Jacob Davis and Dave Turnbull, the song has been a favorite on the road for years and one that The Parish, as Davis endearingly refers to his fans, have anxiously awaited to be released. The up-tempo ballad finds Davis reflecting on the choices and mistakes we make in life chronicling the twists, turns anddetoursthat lead us all to exactly where we are 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
