Performing on the CMA Fest main stage has been a dream come true for Jordan Davis

Jordan Davis recently experienced a “wild,” full-circle moment. After years of hard work, he finally got to perform at Nissan Stadium for this year’s CMA Fest.

“This is my first time ever playing a stadium,” Jordan tells the press prior to his performance. “During soundcheck, I was thinking about how I used to drive past the stadium on the way to work when I was bartending. And, now I get to play in it, so that’s pretty special.”

Arriving at the CMA Fest main stage has been a long time coming for the “Next Thing You Know” hitmaker, as he recalls.

“CMA Fest has been just such a big part of my life for the last seven years since I started touring. And, I feel like we’ve kind of grown from smaller stages to the Riverfront to now,” Jordan reflects. “We made the jump over the river, and we’re playing the stadium tonight. So it’s going to be a really special set.”

Jordan will perform his #1 hit “Buy Dirt” on CMA Fest Wednesday, July 19, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
