Mac Davis

Mac Davis (born January 21, 1942) is a country music singer, songwriter, and actor originally from Lubbock, Texas, who has enjoyed much crossover success. His early work writing for Elvis Presley produced multiple number-one hits (including "Memories", "In The Ghetto", and the latently popular "A Little Less Conversation"), and a subsequent solo career in the late 1970s made him a well-known name in pop music. He has starred in his own variety show, a Broadway musical, and various films. Davis initially became famous as a songwriter and got his start as an employee of Nancy Sinatra's company, Boots Enterprises, Inc. Davis was with Boots for several years in the late 1960s. During his time there, he played on many of Sinatra's recordings and she put him in her stage shows. Boots Enterprises was also Davis' publishing company, publishing songs such as "In the Ghetto", "Friend, Lover, Woman, Wife", "Home", "It's Such a Lonely Time of Year", and "Memories", which were recorded by Elvis Presley, Nancy Sinatra and others. Davis left Boots Enterprises in 1970 to sign with Columbia Records, taking his songs with him. He became known later also as a country singer. Especially during the
