Scott Mac Davis
Rest In Peace

Normaly, I would leave you with a funny video this week but since I'm honoring the great Mac Davis, I wanted to close this week out with the same way he closed out all of his shows.

 White Limozeen was featured in the documentary Hollywood to Dollywood (2011). The song, co-written with Dolly Parton was one of many songs written with or by Mac Davis that became trademarks for another artist.

White Limozeen was released as the fifth single from Dolly Parton's WHITE LIMOZEEN album.

Good morning, Country Fans!

Scotty Mac Davis

I'm dedicating this entire week to the late Mac Davis. In case you missed the news or didn't see Monday's post, Mac passed away September 29th due to complications following heart surgery. 

I'm not going to 'review' Mac's music. The songs he wrote were pure magic for so many artists. Today, I thought I'd share a couple of those videos.

Don't Cry Daddy was a big hit for Elvis Presley

Something's Burning from Kenny Rogers and the First Edition :

Most recently, Wait 'Til I Get You Home -  this duet with Dolly Parton:

OUT OF THE CHUTE - Mac Davis Remembered



One of the most talented songwriters of all time left us on September 29th due to complications following a recent heart surgery. 

As a writer who focuses on Texas artists, I'd been thinking of Mac in recent weeks, wondering what he was up to, or even still with us. I decided once Bob went back to work and I got this baby shower behind me, I would do some research. Two days later I saw the tweet from Dolly Parton that he was gone. 

For a guy who sang a song called It's Hard to Be Humble, Mac was just the opposite. he wass a good ole boy from Lubbock Texas lucky enough to have spent more than fifty years doing something he loved.

His career began in the 1960's when Elvis recorded several of Mac's songs. He continued into the 1970s, writing Something's Burning for Kenny Rogers and the First Edition. While Gallery recorded I Believe In Music, the tune became Mac's signature closing song for his own shows. One of my favorites he wrote was Watching Scotty Grow, a big hit for Bobby Goldsboro (1971)

While he continued to write great hits (his  most recent recordings in 2014), Mac Davis also had his share of on-screen time with his own television show for two years and in North Dallas Forty (as a quarterback), with Nick Nolte. He was also a favorite musical guest on The Tonight Show.

Tomorrow, I'll drop in a video of one of my favorite Mac Davis tunes. Please share in the comments below what your favorite is.

 Now there's a title for you!

Not a lot going on this week. This is Bob's final week home and fall has arrived. We have a lot to get done outside before he leaves a week from tomorrow. Please bear with me as I spend this time with him and get things done while I have his help. 

I hope you'll get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather. According to some sources Winter will come early and be unseasonably cold/ wet in most parts of the country. 

Country Blessings!

 In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month I thought I'd share this piece from The Bellamy Brothers. This song was part of the Susan G. Komen program a few years back!

 In the wee hours of Tuesday morning I dreamed I was spending final hours with the great Merle Haggard. In the dream, he counted me as a friend he'd known for many years.

Sadly, that isn't true. I never had the opportunity to meet Merle Haggard or to interview him. I don't regret having not had the chance because I believe that all things happen for a reason. Someday, I'll have the opportunity to talk to a lot of great artists in country music's Grand Palace. Until then, I can only share their music with my readers.

In the dream, this song was playing in the background and thought it was perfect for today's Throwback Thursday video.

We miss you Merle Haggard!
