Jordan Davis delivered an unforgettable night of music for a sold-out crowd at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville on Friday evening (Sept. 1) as part of his “Damn Good Time” Tour.

Immediately kicking it into high gear with the song that inspired the tour’s name, “Damn Good Time,” the country superstar was all smiles as he burst onto the stage and greeted fans.

“Damn Nashville! Good to see y’all again. Welcome to the Damn Good Time Tour baby!” Davis said.

Confident Performance

Exuding confidence, Davis then took fans on a musical journey with his expertly crafted 20+ song set list, which featured the perfect blend of his six chart-topping hits, beloved fan-favorites, album cuts and crowd-pleasing cover songs.

In addition to performing songs such as “Singles You Up,” “Almost Maybes,” and “Take It From Me,” his set also featured 11 tracks from his RIAA Gold-certified sophomore album, Bluebird Days. From Bluebird Days, Davis performed tracks like “Damn Good Time,” “Whiskey Weak,” “You’ve Got My Number,” “Fishing Spot,” “Part Of It,” “Short Fuse,” and “Bluebird Days.” Additionally, he treated the audience to the chart-topping from that album, including “What My World Spins Around,” “Next Thing You Know,” “Buy Dirt,” as well as his current single, “Tucson Too Late.”

Memorable Acoustic Segment

In the midst of his exhilarating set, he took a moment to slow it down a bit and offer a memorable acoustic set that included songs from his debut album, Home State, which he said he doesn’t often get the opportunity to perform a lot of songs from.

While performing a stripped down set, the Louisiana native paused to reflect on the success he’s achieved through the years since moving to Music City 11 years ago.

“Looking here at that Bridge… I moved to Nashville in 2012 and I used to drive across that bridge for the first six years of being in town and I would drive out to this bar that I worked at in Donelson and it’s pretty crazy for me to look at that and think back on those years and think about where I am at right now,” Davis admitted. “Thank y’all so much for tonight, for loving these songs… When I moved here I never dreamed of being the guy with the microphone singing. I loved to song write and I knew I wanted to be part of Country music because I loved it.”

Collection Of Covers

Jordan Davis also highlighted what he called a “truly golden era of music” with a collection of covers, which were inspired by a homemade (Burnt) CD that he created during his childhood, titled “Summer Jams ’07.”

“Remember when you could download songs along with every computer virus that ever existed” he joked before a massive blank CD with songs written on it appeared on the screens behind him, bringing back High School music memories for many in attendance. The mixtape of cover tunes included songs by Lifehouse (“Hanging By A Moment”), The Fray (“Over My Head (Cable Car)”), Keith Urban (“You’ll Think of Me),” Maroon 5 (“This Love”) Gavin DeGraw (“I Don’t Want To Be”) and Train (“Drops of Jupiter”).

The Damn Good Time Tour showcased Davis’ excellent showmanship alongside a visually stunning production that brought his songs to life in a creative way, allowing for a truly immersive experience. The production boasts of massive video screens, a dock-like riser that hosted the band, vibrant lighting, fog and more.

Showcased Gratitude For Songwriters And The Fans

Davis made sure to graciously thank the “early believers” and “people that gave me a chance when I shouldn’t have been given a chance” in Music City, saying “I love you guys, thank you so much!”

He also showcased gratitude for the songsmiths that helped penned his songs. “There’s alot of people that make this town what it is that are here tonight and that’s the songwriters of Nashville, Tennessee. I do not write all these songs,” Davis said. “People in this town wrote [some of] those songs and that’s what makes this city so great. Nashville songwriters I love you to death, but the most important people I want to thank is every single one of y’all for being here and allowing us to do what we love to do and that’s to play live music. Thank you so much Nashville for the most memorable night of music that I’ve ever had.”

The hitmaker’s captivating performance came to a close with him prompting a massive sing-along to “Buy Dirt,” sans Luke Bryan, with his adoring fans.

“I’ll never forget tonight. Thank you for this right here Nashville,” he shared before exiting the stage.
