Jordan Davis scored his third consecutive No. 1 single as “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” ascended to the top of the Mediabase country chart this week.
Jordan and Lonnie Fowler penned “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” during a writing session in 2015. The tune was inspired by Lonnie’s first date with his future wife at a college formal—he didn’t want the night to end so he slow danced with her in a parking lot to Garth Brooks’ “She’s Every Woman.”
“Sharing the truth in three and a half minutes . . . that is what a good country song does,” says Jordan. “It is what we wanted to do with ‘Slow Dance,’ tell this real and honest love story. It’s been great to see that authenticity resonate with fans. From slow dancing at our shows to sharing their own videos on socials slow dancing in parking lots, they’ve really embraced it. Big thanks to Lonnie for letting me share his story and to the fans and country radio for their continued support. I couldn’t be more proud or thankful.”
“Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” follows Jordan’s previous No. 1 singles, “Singles You Up” (April 2018) and “Take It From Me” (March 2019). All three singles are from Jordan’s 2018 debut album, Home State.
