In recent years, Louisiana-born singer-songwriter Jordan Davis has been making waves in Nashville. After years of working on his craft, he secured a recording contract with Universal Music Group Nashville in 2016, releasing his debut single, “Singles You Up,” a year later. In March 2018, he released his first album, Home State, and a month later, in April, “Singles You Up” hit number one on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.
Though Davis has a few shows through the end of 2019, he just announced his headlining Trouble Town Tour kicking off on January 10, 2020. The 22-date run takes Davis from Milwaukee to Atlanta to Spokane to New York, and features openers Kassi Ashton and Hailey Whitters.
Before Davis announced the country-spanning tour, he stopped by Gear Patrol’s office in New York to share his tour essentials. He balances performance and style when dressing for concerts — he plays a variety of indoor and outdoor shows. Though he rotates outfits, you’ll usually find him in Nike sneakers, a custom necklace, an Omega watch. Let him explain why.
And, if you want to see the EDC Davis brings with him on tour, read this story.
What He Wears Onstage
Dror Flantzman Coordinates Necklace
“This is my necklace my wife got me — this is actually my second one of this. These are the coordinates to a Holiday Inn in Houma, Louisiana which is where we met. She got me this our first anniversary and it’s just been something that now, like if I don’t have it on, I feel weird.”
Future Sonics MG6 HX In-Ear Monitors
“I use Future Sonics MG6HX — they’re fantastic in-ears. The good thing about the Future Sonics is the frequency is flat across the board. It kind of gives me a full band feel and that’s something that I love.”
Nike Air Max Oketo Sneakers
“I’m a huge Nike fan, a huge fan of the Air Max. This is, I think, probably one of the eight pairs that I have…They’re a great show shoe — a lot of we play outdoors, sometimes we’ll play in the rain, sometimes it gets slippery. I don’t have to worry about ending up on Youtube when I have these guys on.”
Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph
“This was a gift from Old Dominion, a band that I toured with. The best thing about it is that I never have to worry about it dying — it’s manual. We play a lot of different shows: some of them 35 minutes, some of them an hour, some of them an hour and 15 minutes. I trust this guy a lot.””
Costa Chatham Trucker Hat
“It’s a good-looking hat, in my opinion, and also it’s supporting a great company that does a lot of great things. Costa, I know, has got behind a big kick plastic campaign.”
