(TORONTO, ON) – Country music stars Jordan Davis and Luke Bryan celebrated No. 1 single “Buy Dirt” after they were surprised with a Platinum plaque while out on a hunting trip together. The hit song was officially certified Platinum by the RIAA earlier this month. Bryan shared a sneak-peek of the trip on his Instagram.
Additionally, Davis notched his first multi-week No. 1 at country radio, as “Buy Dirt” remained at the top spot on the both the Billboard and Mediabasecountry airplay charts for a second consecutive week. The MCA Nashville recording artist earned his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, as “Buy Dirt” dethroned Walker Hayes’ “Fancy Like” after a 24-week run at No. 1.
“Buy Dirt” is Davis’ fastest moving single to date and the No. 3 most consumed country song of 2022, reaching over 250 million global streams. “Buy Dirt” has landed on four different Viral Charts in the US, Canada, Australia, and South Africa, has been inside the Top 200 country streaming chart all 34 weeks since release, and inside the Top 5 for 16 weeks. “Buy Dirt” has spent 25 consecutive weeks on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 chart.
Following the news last week, Davis announced a second date at the Ryman Auditorium on September 28, 2022. The shows will mark Davis’ first headlining appearance at the famed Nashville venue. The talented Louisiana native has performed “Buy Dirt” on NBC’S 3rd Hour TODAY, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and ABC’s Live with Kelly And Ryan. “Buy Dirt” received a nomination for Musical Event of the Year on the 55th Annual CMA Awards, Davis’ first of his career. Davis will hit the road this Spring for the second leg of his Buy Dirt Tour.
