Interesting facts and trivia about Buy Dirt. By Songfacts®.

Jordan Davis wrote this vulnerable song with his brother Jacob Davis and the brothers Josh and Matt Jenkins a few months into the global pandemic. With his entire world turned upside down, Davis could slow down and recognize he still had his family, friends, faith and the piece of dirt where he lives.

Unable to tour and perform his music due to the COVID lockdown, Davis gleaned insight to what is really important in life. "Everything was at a standstill," he said. "I came to the realization of man, all you need is your faith, your family and your friends. And music's great and I love it and I'm happy I get to do it, but at the end of the day those are three things that I need to always keep at the top of my list, and 'Buy Dirt' is my kind of pledge to that."

Luke Bryan contributes a verse halfway through before accompanying Davis for the rest of the song. After meeting at an awards show, the two became buddies; the "Almost Maybes" singer both likes and respects his fellow country star. "Luke isn't just a great entertainer; he's a great dad, a great husband, and a great friend, too. That's what 'Buy Dirt' embodies," said Davis. "When I wrote 'Buy Dirt,' I knew he could relate to the song's message. I took a chance and asked him to join me on the recording, and he said yes."
