The Davisson Brothers Band is comprised of brothers Chris and Donnie Davisson, cousin Sammy Davisson, and long-time friend Aaron Regester. Though the group has been together for several years, it was more recently that Davisson Brothers Band started its trek toward being a household name.
In 2009, Davisson Brothers Band sealed the deal — the record deal, that is — when it signed with CharTunes/Yell Records. The foursome released a self-titled debut album in the first quarter of 2009, seeking the assistance of David Hanner with production. Though its lead single, “Foot Stompin’,” from the album charted on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and the album itself reached the Top 40 on the Top Country Albums chart, the group didn’t quite catapult to country music notoriety. Yet.
Continuing to work toward the big goal of having its music heard nationwide, Davisson Brothers Band pushed forward with creating music that is unique to it — an infusion of country, rock, and bluegrass. The single “Country Just Like Me” and its corresponding music video were released in 2013, but it was in 2015 that the group of friends and family members found itself on Sirius XM’s The Highway with its single “Jesse James” (previously recorded by Clay Walker).
“Jesse James” was produced by the award-winning Keith Stegall with the intention of making the song the group’s first national release. The track that focuses on a good boy wanting to feel the rush of a wild life introduced Davisson Brothers Band to country music fans, showing off the harmonies that only a group that is genetically connected can muster.
With The Highway’s listeners immediately taking to the song and requesting its way into the Hot 45, the track next made its way to terrestrial radio, securing the title of one of the most added songs for the week of January 20, 2015. Davisson Brothers Band’s “Jesse James” continues to receive spins across the nation today, as the group celebrates the release of its new music video (included below) for the track. The group also has quite the extensive tour schedule, which can be found on its official website.
