Gallatin is featured throughout a new music video by country music recording artist Jordan Davis.
The video for “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” was filmed in late May at several locations across the city including Fred’s, Sumner Regional Medical Center, Family Dollar and the Gallatin High School football field.
“It’s great to see familiar places and familiar faces,” Mayor Paige Brown said about the music video that was released last week. “It’s a really sweet and good song. I hope that people who do realize it’s in Gallatin will get an even better sense of what kind of place we are.”
The video, directed by Patrick Tracy, follows a young boy through different moments of his life that happen to take place in parking lots like playing hockey to dancing with his girlfriend after a football game, according to a Universal Media Group Nashville news release.
Some of the scenes also include several football players and cheerleaders from Gallatin High School.
“I remember thinking when we were talking about a video for this song, it was gonna be pretty easy, but Patrick did a really, really good job of making it special and making it something else,” Davis said. “I think this kind of adds another element to how special this song is.”

“Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” is the third single from Davis’ debut album Home State, which was released by MCA Records Nashville in March. The song is his fastest rising single to date and follows his back-to-back No. 1 hits “Singles You Up” and “Take it From Me.”
In 2018, Davis was named Billboard’s Top New Country Artist as well as Country Aircheck/Mediabase’s Most Heard New Artist. He most recently won Best New Country Artist at the iHeartRadio Music Awards earlier this year in addition to MusicRow’s Breakout Artist of the Year Award.
The Louisiana native is currently on tour with Rascal Flatts as part of the “Sumner Playlist Tour.”
