Surviving the Music Industry


Aug 6, 2019

Sliding in DM's, the fast track to becoming an artist, and new music with Jordan Davis and Tyler Dial. Jordan Davis takes us back to his home state of Louisiana and reflects on the past year on the release of his highly acclaimed breakout record, Home State. But first, Tyler Dial jumps in to talk about his latest single release, "About Last Night" and social media etiquette.

 

 Jordan Davis is a Shreveport-born, Nashville songwriter. Armed with two back-to-back #1 songs (“Singles You Up” and “Take It From Me”) from his debut album Home State. Jordan is following up with his latest release, “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot”. With over 330 million streams, holding the record for the most weeks on Pandora’s New Country Top 10 chart for a debut single, and wrapping up opening for Rascal Flatts and Old Dominion in 2019. Jordan may be most excited about becoming a father. We tap into that but we also start at the beginning in our conversation. Coming from a rich musical family (his uncle penning Tracy Lawrence’s hits, “Today’s Lonely Fool” and “Better Man, Better Off” and his brother also a songwriter in Nashville, TN), Jordan never got a free pass in the music city. With the help of his brother, right place in the right time connections, a fork in the road, and a little perseverance. Jordan was able to sign his label deal with Universal Music Group Nashville within 5 years from moving to Nashville. We tackle head games and making comparisons, but more importantly how he was able to get over the thief of joy.

Arizona born, Texas schooled, Nashville songwriter Tyler Dial starts this episode promoting his latest release “About Last Night”. I first met Tyler years ago when he was still attending Texas University and starting his music career. What started off as a casual slide in a DM has now become a first time meet in person. Not really the new kid in town, Tyler has worked with songwriters/producers Ryan Tyndell, Ryan Beaver, Jeremy Spillman, Ben Hayslip, Lucie Silvas, Devin Dawson, Andy Albert, Kyle Fishman, and more on his Repaint EP. Since then things have progressed to the present with the latest releases. To check out when a live show is going to happen or where to follow him check this out https://linktr.ee/tylerdial.
