Buy Dirt (Voice and Piano)
Jordan Davis’ fantastic track, Buy Dirt was released in July 2021. Davis co-wrote this song with his brother Jacob, as well as brothers Josh and Matt Jenkins.
Davis was reflecting on his friendship with Luke Bryan, and how he was a great dad, husband and friend. This song draws on that, creating a song that is all about faith, family, friends and really finding your happiness.
Buy Dirt peaked at number 4 in the US Hot Country Songs, and number 6 in the Canada Country charts.
Head & Heart – Joel Corry ft. MNEK
British DJ and producer Joel Corry produced an awesome hit with “Head and Heart”. Reaching number 1 in the UK, it was both Corry and vocalist MNEK’s first chart topper.
With such a catchy vocal hook, I thought this would work really well as a choral arrangement. However, some of the vocal flourishes went a bit high in the original key, so I included an alternate arrangement in C minor as opposed to F minor. The lower key necessitated some changes in the vocal lines, but it has meant a reduced vocal range that lends itself to school choirs.
Head & Heart by Joel Corry ft. MNEK. List price: US$9.99. Available at Sheet Music Plus.
