Shot at Fort Pickens in Pensacola, Florida, this scenic clip finds Davis showing off his soft side while spending quality time with his wife Destiny and the couple’s four kids, Maleah, 6, Brantley, 5, Granger, 4, and Easton, 2. Showing his appreciation for his wife, whom he married in 2018, Davis can also be seen singing to her while adoringly slow dancing with her amid a glowing sunset.
“Destiny / Sure got a hold of my heart / Just like it’s meant to be / You might say it was written in the stars / This unpredictable love made this beautiful life / I couldn’t make it up even if I tried / ‘Cause it’s Destiny,” Davis sings of his muse throughout the chorus of the reflective tune.
Throughout the video, Davis is also shown spending time with his four kids during a perfect afternoon on the beach complete with rolling ocean waves, sand, and an icy-blue sky.
“We really couldn’t have picked a better location or day to shoot. The beach is absolutely incredible, and the kids had the time of their life playing in the sand and running along the shoreline. It really was a blast to create and seeing everything come together into this final video is just amazing,” Davis tells Music Mayhem of the video shoot. “StoryLive Productions blew this video out of the water, and it’s everything I could have hoped for.”
Davis wrote “Destiny” with his two buddies, Alex Pennington Smith and Kyle Clark in the spring of 2021, as a surprise for his wife. Regarding the process, he called the surprise “the hardest secret that I’ve ever had to keep.”
“The song tells our story, from meeting and falling in love to me becoming a bonus dad, to us building our own family and the nearly fatal car crash that really gave me the push I needed to start my music career, along with my wife’s help of course,” Davis shared. “It’s definitely my favorite song I’ve ever written and will forever be engraved in my heart.”
“Destiny” appears on Davis’ 5-track Self-Titled EP.
The fatal car crash that Davis is referring to is the one that occurred back in February 2019. Davis, who was driving to his then job as a design engineer, was hit head-on by a distracted driver. After spending two weeks in the hospital, he came out with a newfound appreciation for chasing his dreams and realized that if he didn’t, his kids wouldn’t either.
Along with his new video, Davis will soon take the road as an opening act for Tim McGraw’s McGraw Tour 2022. The trek, which kicks off on Friday (April 29) in Arkansas, also will feature Russell Dickerson and Alexandra Kay as supporting acts.
