Selfish

Album: Home State (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • When Jordan Davis comes home off the road after a long touring stretch, he admits to wanting to just spend some time being close with his wife Kristen.

    I rolled in and rained down
    Like a storm cloud or a heat wave
    Made you stay undercover where it's safe
    Don't give a damn about the plans you made
    We're staying in the bed all day


    "I guess it's pretty honest to who I am," Davis admitted to Taste of Country. "We spend a lot of time away from the wife. So sometimes, you know... (chuckles). When you're only home for a couple of days, I guess I wanna be a little selfish and spend some time with her."
