Canadian country recording artist and current Nashville starlet Amanda Jordan is thrilled to announce the release of her new music video for her Music City-inspired single, “Driving in the Dark”, which is new this week on YouTube. The single will hit Canadian radio on September 30th.
Jordan says of the single, “The very first time I drove to Nashville to write, my twin brother was accompanying me and telling me about how he loved to drive at night and into the sunrise. From there, the song grew. I wanted to create a happy musical energy that captures the euphoria one feels when you first fall in love and begin experiencing the world together. It’s something you can listen to as you drive along on a warm summer evening.”
The framework of “Driving of the Dark” was crafted by Jordan and esteemed Nashville writers Phil Barton (Meghan Patrick, The Washboard Union) and Jason Matthews (Billy Currington, Luke Bryan). After heading back to the illustrious Canadian confines of Barrytone Studios, award-winning producer Jason Barry (Dean Brody, Jason Blaine) molded the song into what it is today.
The release of “Driving in the Dark” follows a wave of highlights for the radiant young talent.
After making the final ten in both the 2016 and 2017 ole Red Dot on the Spot Songwriting Competitions, she later made the finals of the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition for her song “Silverado Run”. That same year, she opened for Canadian superstar Brett Kissel as part of his Kick it with Kissel contest and was one of eight wild cards to compete for the last spot in the Boots and Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase.
The culmination of these events prompted Jordan to move to Nashville in 2018. Besides writing with the likes of Daniel Ross (Florida Georgia Line) and Abram Dean (Madeline Merlo), she has further embraced Music City by performing as a featured songwriter on the acclaimed Nashville Songbird Tour Bus alongside notables like Trey Bruce (Carrie Underwood) and Paul Jefferson (Keith Urban).
With her status as a bright light on the country music horizon all but certain, “Driving in the Dark” is the first step towards international recognition for Jordan and it’s sure to draw equal applause in Canada, Nashville, and beyond.
“Amanda Jordan will kick off her support of “Driving in the Dark” at the Perth Fair on September 1st, followed by a Diamonds in the Rough Showcase on September 7th in Calgary during Canadian Country Music Week, and an Ontario media tour and single release show in Ottawa on October 19th to coincide with the Canadian radio release.”
“Driving in the Dark” is now available on all digital platforms.
