The Saturday headliner for the 2020 Rattlesnake Rodeo will be Jordan Davis.

MCA Nashville’s Davis has been named an “Artist to Watch” by Billboard, Rolling Stone, CMT, Pandora, Shazam, Amazon Music, Sounds like Nashville, The Tennessean, SiriusXM, Whiskey Riff and more.

A native of Shreveport, La., Davis graduated from Louisiana State University, and briefly pursued the path of his degree working as an environmental consultant; however, his passion for music and songwriting eventually compelled him to move to Nashville in the summer of 2012.

Davis’ debut album Home State has accumulated 800 million streams and features his current top 25 single, “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot,” as well as two recent back-to-back No. 1 Platinum-Certified hits “Singles You Up,” and “Take It From Me.”

Davis just won Best New Country Artist at the iHeart Radio Music Aeards and was recently nominated for ACM New Male Artist of the Year.

He was also named to Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2018, as well as Country Aircheck/Mediabase’s Most Heard New Artist of 2018.

The singer/songwriter has previously toured with the likes of Rascal Flatts, Jake Owen, Kip Moore, as well as Brett Young and is currently on the road with Old Dominion as part of the “Make It Sweet” Tour in Europe, hitting cities such as London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Stolkholm.
