Early life and education

Davidson was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and began taking classical piano lessons at age four. In spite of his classical training, he learned to play popular music by ear. He was a finalist in the Mid-South Fair Youth Talent Contest, held annually in Memphis. Elvis Presley and Justin Timberlake were also veterans of this contest.

In 1999, Davidson graduated from the all-male private preparatory Memphis University School.

Educational background

Davidson attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, graduating in 2003, magna cum laude, earning a Bachelor of Music and minors in musical theatre and political science. He studied opera and vocal performance with renowned baritone Bruce Hall and was coached by Richard Boldrey. At Northwestern, Davidson appeared in the role of Danny Zuko in Grease, and as the leading man in many other productions, including the Chicago Premiere of Titanic (Barrett) and Into the Woods.

In the summer of his junior year, Davidson starred as "Frid" in the Ravinia Festival's production of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music with George Hearn, Patti LuPone, Zoe Caldwell, and Marc Kudisch.

Professional background

Rather than move to New York to pursue a career on Broadway, Davidson moved to Los Angeles. He guest-starred on the NBC daytime drama Days of Our Lives and The WB Television Network's Gilmore Girls.

In between projects, Davidson wrote music that he later released as a digital EP titled The Good Hurt. His debut single, "More Than I Can Give", was the song that catapulted his career. Independent of any record label or production company, the corresponding music video landed on the websites of CMT, Great American Country, MTV, and VH1, indicative of the fact that Davidson's music appealed to a diverse audience from contemporary country to pop/rock. The song was featured on the in-flight audio programs of Northwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and Cathay Pacific Airways, as well as the Subway sandwich franchise's own radio station. This success gave rise to interviews and performances on radio stations all across the country.

In 2008, Davidson moved to Nashville and won CMT's Music City Madness original song contest with his song "Mr. Wrong", and opened for Josh Gracin and Craig Morgan in Southaven, Mississippi.
