One of our 2018 Artists to Watch, Jordan Davis continues to show fans exactly who he is through his artistry. Most recently, the singer-songwriter released “Trouble Town” and “Cool Anymore” and even surprised fans, with an upcoming headlining tour. On Friday, Davis added to his resume, releasing an Amazon Music original cover of the classic tune “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” by Jo Dee Messina.
The rising artist adds some modern-day flair to the classic country tune, while still keeping the integrity of the original. Davis’ cover easily fits in with the vibe of his debut record Home State, as well as, his newer songs. The singer showcases his distinct sound and vocals in all his music, which will continue to separate him from the pack in the best possible way.
“Baby what do you say we just get lost / Leave this one horse town like two rebels without a cause / I’ve got people in Boston, ain’t your daddy still in Des Moines / We can pack tomorrow, tonight let’s flip a coin”
On release day, Davis took to his social media to give fans an inside look into his inspiration for recording the song. “I’ve loved ‘Heads Carolina, Tails California’ since I was a kid,” he explains. “I wanted to throw a different spin on the song [because] there are so many interpretations when you have lyrics and music this strong. It was fun to take it on with @amazonmusic.”
It will be interesting to see if the cover song makes it into Davis’ set-list, as he is currently gearing up for his ‘Trouble Town Tour’ with talented songstress’ Hailey Whitters and Kassi Ashton. New Yorkers can find tickets for the March 19th show at Webster Hall in New York City here.
