Up and coming Country music star Jordan Davis will be performing a benefit concert at the Staheli Family Farm in Washington, Utah, outside St. George, on July 27, 2022. The concert will benefit the local nonprofit organization Get Outside Utah. The concert will start at 8 pm (MST) with the doors opening at 6 pm (MST).
Jordan Davis is best known for his hit “Buy Dirt,” which he performs as a duet with Country Megastar Luke Bryan. The #1 hit song was released in July of 2021 and has been in the top 200 Country Music Streaming Chart for more than 33 weeks and was streamed over 250 million times during the year of 2021 alone. Jordan Davis wrote the song, and they knew Luke Bryan would be the perfect addition to the song.
However, the hit song with Luke Bryan was not his first #1 hit song. Starting back in 2017, he has had three other #1 hits, including “Singles You Up,” “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot,” and “Take it from Me.” The duet with Luke Bryan was his biggest hit and has gone platinum.
Based out of Nashville, Jordan Davis has multiple links to the country entertainment business and a family lineage heavily engulfed within the genre of music. His uncle Stan Davis wrote country music songs for several country stars, most notably Tracy Lawrence. The big hits “Today’s Lonely Fool” and “Better Man, Better Off” for Lawrence were written by Stan Davis. Besides his uncle being a country songwriter, his brother Jacob also is a country musician.
He grew up in Shreveport, LA, graduated from Louisiana State University, moved immediately to Nashville in 2012, and was signed by Universal Music Group Nashville in 2016.
He was nominated for CMT Music Award in 2019 for “Take It From Me” for Breakthrough Video of the Year, the 2019 ACM Award for New Male Artist of the Year. In 2022, thanks to “Buy Dirt,” he was nominated for ACM Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Music Event of the Year. He also was nominated for CMT Collaborative Video of the Year, and Billboard Music Awards for Top Country Song.
The nonprofit organization which benefits from the concert is Get Outside Utah. Dr. Matthew and Julie Mizukawa started the nonprofit in St. George, Utah. The goal was to help youth be able to experience the outdoors without having to supply the financial costs for such activities. It also helps promote physical activity, better health, and avoid being a “couch potato.”
They noticed within one of their children the harm that constant use and excessive use of video games and television caused to health and success in life and education. They wanted to promote healthier activity to youth but knew that many outdoor sports and activities need proper safety equipment, which can get pricy. The organization provides adequate equipment, safety equipment, and formal instruction from professionals to local youth. It allows youth to experience the “Great Outdoors” and physical and mental health benefits.
The organization also has Professor Johnathan Taylor of Southern Utah University on the Board, an avid outdoorsman who currently serves as the Assistant Dean of Integrative Learning at SUU, President of the Utah Teachers Association, and a board member of the Zion National Park Forever Project.
The organization also has established school clubs at each high school in Washington and Iron Counties of Utah.
The concert will again be on Wednesday, July 27 at 8:00 pm (MST) at the Staheli Family Farm, located at 3400 South Washington Fields Road in Washington, Utah. The tickets are $37.50 each plus the cost of fees and tax.
