Mac Davis

At his commercial peak in the mid-'70s, Mac Davis was one of America's most popular entertainers, a countrypolitan-styled singer and actor who found considerable success in both fields. Born Scott Davis on January 21, 1942, in Buddy Holly's hometown of Lubbock, TX, he began performing in local rock groups while still in his teens. After moving to Georgia, Davis first broke into the music business in 1962, when he was hired by the Chicago-based record label Vee-Jay as their Atlanta-based regional manager. After joining the Liberty label three years later, in 1967 he moved to Los Angeles to head the company's publishing arm, Metric Music; in addition to running Metric's day-to-day operations, he also began composing his own songs, with Glen Campbell, Bobby Goldsboro, Lou Rawls, and Kenny Rogers & the First Edition among the artists recording his work.

In 1968, Elvis Presley recorded Davis' "A Little Less Conversation," and soon after the King was requesting more of his work. After notching a Top 40 hit with Davis' "Memories," Presley reached the Top Five in 1969 with the songwriter's "In the Ghetto," a single from the landmark From Elvis in Memphis LP. Davis also arranged the music for Presley's first television special before signing his own recording contract in 1970. In that year, he released his first chart single, "Whoever Finds This, I Love You," from his debut album, Song Painter.

In 1972, Davis scored a number one pop hit with "Baby, Don't Get Hooked on Me," which also reached the country Top 20. His crossover success continued throughout the decade, with singles like 1974's "Stop and Smell the Roses," 1975's "Burnin' Thing," and the following year's "Forever Lovers" scoring with listeners in both camps. Between 1974 and 1976, Davis hosted a musical variety show for NBC television, followed by a string of specials; in 1979, he also starred in the film North Dallas Forty with Nick Nolte.

Davis' success continued in the early '80s; "It's Hard to Be Humble," the title track of his 1980 album, was the first of four consecutive Top Ten country hits that culminated with his biggest country single, "Hooked on Music," the next year. In 1980, he also starred in a TV movie, Cheaper to Keep Her. However, a co-starring role opposite Jackie Gleason and Karl Malden in 1983's disastrous The Sting II effectively ended Davis' career in Hollywood, and by 1985, he had recorded his last Top Ten hit, "I Never Made Love (Till I Made Love With You)." In 1990, Davis made a comeback as a songwriter, co-authoring Dolly Parton's hit "White Limozeen"; that same year, he also took over the title role in the Broadway hit The Will Rogers Follies. Will Write Songs for Food, his first LP in nearly a decade, appeared in 1994. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Wish Mac would so some shows. I named my first son Scott because I loved Mac's song "Watching Scotty Grow!" Love you Mac! You're fabulous entertainer and songwriter
A great songwriter and performer
Saw him about 4months ago. Man get out and see him. He put on a great show.
I'm so glad I found Pandora so that I can listen to the classic artist's from my time, such as Mac Davis, at least the songs have meaning and bring back a lot of good memories!!
Just married our daughter Emily. She danced with her father to his song Emily Suzanne. We heard that song when we were expecting her and she was named after the song. Dance brought back special memories and created more! Thank you, Mac!
Lots of good memories listening to his songs and others like it. I wish the radio stations would play them instead of the rap crap thats out today

Hey , you all do know that he wrote "baby don't get hooked on me", basically as a joke about "hook lines" in a song. It's "Sara Between the Lines", my daughter Sara thought I wrote it for her because I always sang it to her when she was a child. Have all his stuff on vinyl from my high school and college days. He was one of the few artists I liked that wasn't an "old f*rt" like me. Sure do miss Hank, et al
