After wrapping up his trek serving as direct support on Kane Brown’s Blessed And Free Tour, Jordan Davis joined iHeartRadio’s The Wayne D Show to talk his experience on the tour with Brown and more. During the interview, Davis revealed the “expensive” gift that he received from Brown as a thank you for being a supporting act on the first half of his arena tour.
The tour marked the “Buy Dirt” singer’s first major arena tour, which helped grow his fan base and along the way, as they toured the United States together and endured long hours preparing for a show, he and Brown strengthened their friendship. After Brown walked into the green room with a gift for Davis, Davis saw the box which was branded with the Rolex symbol on top of it, and he was so surprised and in a state of shock seeing the generous gift that he said “dude I can’t even open that man.”
Davis was beyond grateful for gift, so much so that he even wore the watch that night on stage and hasn’t taken it off since.
“It’s on my wrist right now, it’s the most expensive watch I’ve ever put on,” Davis shared as he showed off the Rolex. “I feel bad because I’ve got him on blast…because now I’m making KB – he’s like, ‘God Jordan, I wish you would shut up because now every time I bring somebody else, I’ve got to get them a Rolex,” he added jokingly.
“KB, I love you buddy, thank you. I wear it all the time.” Davis said as a shoutout to Brown. “It just goes to show you what kind of dude Kane is, he’s just awesome.”
Davis also expressed how grateful he was that Brown took him on his headlining arena trek and showed his appreciation for the “Whiskey Sour” singer with a special gift.
“He came in the green room, and I feel terrible because I think I got Kane a bottle of his favorite whiskey,” he continued. “And you know Kane’s cool as hell… his favorite whiskey I think is Bullet, so I was like ‘dude at least something nice,’ but Kane’s like dude ‘this is what I drink, this is what I want.’”
In a few short months, Davis will kick off his own Buy Dirt Tour with Tenille Arts and Hailey Whitters in Orlando, FL and the fun will continue into the fall as he is scheduled to perform at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, with the band, Seaforth. Before that, he will make his debut at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville later this month alongside Dierks Bentley as part of his Beers On Me Tour.
The leading song behind the tour, “Buy Dirt” recently went platinum, marking Davis’ first multi-week No.1 as it remained at the No.1 spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase Country Airplay charts for a second consecutive week. He and his duet partner on the song, Luke Bryan, were surprised with a platinum plaque during their hunting trip.
“I’m grateful to have all the success I’ve had at radio, but to have one move this fast… I think more so, just the connection it’s made; I haven’t had one that’s connected with the fans as this one has and that means just as much as anything. To have Luke on it, I mean Luke’s become a buddy.” As he said this, Davis reflected on his move to Nashville 10 years ago when just getting started in the industry vs how far he’s come now.
