“Hometown” depicts Jordan’s blue-collar roots and features songs about labor, equality, vulnerability and love. The title track features down-home lyrics like some wanna cross the state line and chase a California dream, some wanna stay in this town for a double dip at Dairy Queen, which many listeners are sure to relate to.
“We wanted to create an album that took classic American themes and put a fresh take on them,” Jordan explains. “My producer, Daniel Dennis, did a great job at giving the record a modern sound. We experimented a lot to find the balance between contemporary and traditional. We wanted to be anything but boring. Hometown is largely inspired by my hometown of Washington, Pennsylvania. We thought it was important for the ‘small town stories’ to be told in a non-traditional way.”
