About Jacob Davis:
Coming in hot, songwriter/artist Jacob Davis has already been named one of CMT’s 17 Artists to Watch in 2017 and Taste of Country’s RISERS. Additionally, Davis has made several 2017 lists including, New Country Artists to Watch in 2017 from Sounds Like Nashville, Whiskey Riff’s list of 14 Artists to Break Out in 2017, Country Living’s 10 Country Artists to Watch in 2017, and The Boot’s 10 New Country Artists to Watch in 2017. Loving music from an early age, Davis learned how to play guitar at 15-years old and began performing publicly while he was in college. Upon graduation from LSU with a degree in environmental science, the Shreveport, Louisiana native spent a year working before realizing that his true calling was music. Soon after, he made the move to Nashville. In May of 2016, Davis signed a deal with Black River Publishing. Exactly one month later, Black River Entertainment CEO Gordon Kerr surprised him during a private event by offering him a record deal and welcomed Davis as a Black River Entertainment, recording artist.
