Luke Combs does a great version of “Buy Dirt.” The Jordan Davis song, which became Jordan’s 4th number one song is a duet with the other Luke, Luke Bryan.
Jordan Davis, his brother Jacob Davis, Matt Jenkins, and Josh Jenkins were on to something special when they gathered at a cabin outside of Murfreesboro, Tennessee for a songwriting session. But little did they know that what they were about to embark upon was the creation of the ACM nominated song, “Buy Dirt,” performed by Jordan himself and featuring Luke Bryan.
In an exclusive video, premiering with American Songwriter, the four writers sat down to discuss the song that is currently nominated for both ACM Single of the Year and Song of the Year.”
“Yeah, ‘Buy Dirt‘ we wrote that,” Jordan says. “Rented a cabin right outside of Murfreesboro and I remember that Matt had the idea—I wanna say you said that idea the night before.”
“I actually heard someone say or heard it somewhere, ‘Buy dirt they ain’t making any more of it,’” Matt recalls. “And so we had talked about that, talking about buying the farm and all that stuff kind of led to ‘Buy Dirt’ and I think that’s where we were like, ‘Hey, let’s write that.’”
The result is a song about, as Jordan tells it, “Faith, family, and friends, and really finding your happiness.”
