Davis was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, and began playing guitar when he was twelve years old. His uncle, Stan Paul Davis, wrote Tracy Lawrence's hit singles "Today's Lonely Fool" and "Better Man, Better Off", and his brother Jacob is also a country music singer.
“Music was around so much, it was just part of our everyday life,” Jordan says.
In fact, because music was always around, Davis hadn’t really thought about it as a career
He majored in resource conservation at LSU in Baton Rouge and thought he would pursue a job that would protect the world’s physical attributes.
“Conserving the beauty of what makes the country so awesome is important,” he says. “It’s easy to think that it’s gonna be here forever, when really we need to take care of it. Louisiana’s losing land as it is – you know, the state’s disappearing year by year – so it’s definitely a passion of mine.”
But so was music. After his graduation from LSU, Jordan got an entry-level environmental job, but he spent plenty of time dreaming of Nashville, where his older brother had already moved to become a songwriter. Jordan periodically sent unfinished songs to his brother, and when Jacob played one for a music executive, he urged Jordan to come to Music City.
Davis' debut single, "Singles You Up", came out in mid-2017. Mike Thiel of Taste of Country reviewed the song with favor, praising the use of internal rhyme and calling it an "easygoing singalong".
"Singles You Up" peaked at #24 on Billboard's Hottest Country 100 on January 20, 2018.
