Singer, Songwriter and Actor Mac Davis Is Dead At 78

His songwriting gave Elvis Presley a pair of hits with “In the Ghetto” and “A Little Less Conversation,” he scored his own No. 1 with “Baby, Don’t Get Hooked on Me,” hosted his self-titled NBC variety show and even shifted over to acting in film (including the still-fondly-remembered North Dallas Forty) and the stage, but, now, singer/songwriter Mac Davis has died at the age of 78 following heart surgery.

His death took place on September 29, the same day (and at the same age) that singer Helen Reddy, who at the start of her career had recorded his “I Believe in Music”, died. Longtime manager Jim Morey issued a statement saying, “Mac Davis has been my client for over 40 years and, more importantly, my best friend. He was a music legend, but his most important work was that as a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. I will miss laughing about our many adventures on the road and his insightful sense of humor.”
