Songfacts®:

  • "Next Thing You Know" chronicles the trajectory of a relationship. Jordan Davis starts the song intent on staying single but that all changes after meeting a girl in a bar. As their union progresses, Davis uses the term "next thing you know" to express his surprise at how swiftly each milestone racks up; from his girlfriend moving in, to getting married, having kids, and finally grandchildren.
  • Jordan Davis wrote the song with Chase McGill (Cole Swindell's "Break Up in the End," Kane Brown's "Lose It"), John Osborne (Sam Hunt's "Body Like A Back Road," Morgan Wallen's "7 Summers") and Greylan James (Chris Young's "If That Ain't God," Kenny Chesney's "Happy Does"). Davis' regular producer Paul DiGiovanni produced the track.
  • DiGiovanni also sang the backing vocals with Trey Keller. The other musicians are:

    Keyboards: Alex Wright
    Electric Guitar: Derek Wells
    Acoustic Guitar: Ilya Toshinskiy
    Bass: Jimmie Lee Sloas
    Drums: Nir Z
