It was April of 2020, and the environment felt like it was slipping apart. A pandemic experienced proven up on earth’s doorstep and with minor to no warning, country music artists from all around the entire world discovered on their own floating in an unidentified of epic proportions and unending questions about their occupation and their long term.
That is, except for the Davisson Brothers Band.
They made the decision to choose it all in stride…and get to get the job done.
So, they set that squeaky doorway and hammered that board again into its respective place and painted that siding that experienced extended been fading on their spouse and children farm in West Virginia.
At the incredibly same time, around 10,209 miles away, Australian region star Amber Lawrence was also hoping to continue to keep her brain off the array of thoughts with no solutions swirling in her head, deciding on as an alternative to continue to be occupied writing, recording and internet hosting her have demonstrate on iHeart Radio.
But shortly, a tune would convey them together forevermore.
That tune is “Greatest Clearly show on Earth.”
“We wished to bridge the two worlds alongside one another into a tune,” clarifies Chris Davisson during a new job interview with American Songwriter. “I suggest, everyone was, and continue to is likely by the very same factor.”
“What’s it likely to be like when they open those gates at that first clearly show again?” Donnie Davisson adds. “What’s that likely to truly feel like?”
This shared eyesight of a hopeful, not so distant long run, eventually introduced alongside one another the Davisson Brothers, Lawrence and Nashville-centered singer-songwriter Rob Synder to create the highly effective track that puts a lyrical eyesight on lifestyle just after the pandemic.
Ideal from the begin, Lawrence experienced a title.
“As shortly as she claimed ‘Greatest Display on Earth,’ I was like ‘yep, that is it, we have the title,” recall Chris Davisson. “To be truthful, I had 10 tips for titles in my notes. (Laughs.) But I understood none of mine were being heading to defeat that.”
“That title powered the whole writing session,” Donnie Davisson more remembers of the uplifting music, which took a mere two hrs to produce. “Someone would produce 50 percent of a verse, and then a person else would have a line that conquer the to start with 1. Every thing was clicking.”
Granted, on the floor, these four songwriters couldn’t be a lot more diverse. The Davisson Brothers and Amber Lawrence experienced actually grew to become pals and supporters of every other back in 2018 for the duration of the time the band’s initial one, “Po Boyz” strike the leading of the Australian radio charts.
And since then, the Davisson Brothers Band has truly viewed terrific good results down underneath. Apart from their quantity one radio strike, they also have snagged a #1 video on CMC and were being even invited to execute at CMC Rocks.
But as air vacation abroad was frequently halted over the spring, the Davisson Brothers Band was identified to by some means backlink up to their beloved buddy in Australia as a result of “Greatest Demonstrate on Earth,” a track for the environment that the Davisson Brothers hoped would infuse all who listened to it with positivity and a perseverance to preserve likely.
Just very last thirty day period, the lyrics of the track was paired with an similarly uplifting songs movie that delivers everyone jointly by way of the magic of Zoom paired with unifying moments on social media of people today undertaking their finest having applied to their new typical.
“It’s however difficult obtaining made use of to ‘the new normal,’” admits Chris Davisson quietly.
In truth, the Davisson Brothers Band assumed items would be back again to usual by now. A great deal like the rest of us who get in touch with the earth home, they imagined the pandemic would be a brief-lived phenomenon. They teased ourselves into wondering that it would vanish with significant temperatures, or a person would discover a vaccine. And most absolutely they would be out participating in their rowdy manufacturer of audio in entrance of their enthusiasts by now.
But, that nevertheless hasn’t took place.
But when it does?
“Oh, it is likely to be the finest clearly show on earth,” Chris Davisson suggests in his Southern growl, permitting out a big chortle at the stop of his hopeful proclamation. “This is going to be the best sing-alongside. It is going to deliver us all collectively.”
“Every time I sing it, I picture a full bunch of people today in a subject, all alongside one another hugging each individual other and observing are living songs again,” adds Donnie Davisson. “It’s likely to be great.”
