He became one of the most successful country singers of the 1970s and 1980s. He is also an actor.Career as a songwriterDavis 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 '60s. 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, Inc. in 1970 to sign with Columbia Records, taking his songs with him.He became known later also as a country singer. Especially during the 1970s, many of his songs scored successfully on the country and popular music charts, including "Baby, Don't Get Hooked on Me" (a number one success), "One Hell of a Woman" (Popular #11), and "Stop and Smell the Roses" (a #9 Popular hit). During the 1970s, he also was active as an actor, hosting his own variety show and also acting in several movies.Davis graduated at sixteen from Lubbock High School in Lubbock, Texas. He spent his childhood years with his sister Linda, living and working at the former College Courts, an efficiency apartment complex owned by his father, T.J. Davis, located at the intersection of College Avenue and 5th Street. Davis describes his father, who was divorced from Davis' mother, as "very religious, very strict, very stubborn." Though Davis was physically small, he had a penchant for getting into fistfights. "In those days, it was all about football, rodeo and fistfights. Oh, man, I got beat up so much while I was growing up in Lubbock," Davis said in a March 2, 2008, interview with the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal newspaper. "I was 5 feet, 9 inches, and weighed 125 pounds. I joined Golden Gloves but didn't do good even in my division." After he finished high school, Davis moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where his mother lived.[1]In Atlanta, Davis played rock and roll music. He also worked for the Vee Jay record company (home to R&B stars such as Gene Chandler, Jerry Butler and Dee Clark) as a regional manager, and later also served as a regional manager for Liberty Records. In the meantime, Davis was also writing songs. One of the songs he wrote in 1968, called "A Little Less Conversation" was recorded by Elvis Presley (and would become a posthumous success for Presley years later). Shortly after, Presley recorded Davis' song "In the Ghetto" in his sessions in Memphis. According to maverick record producer Jimmy Bowen, "Ghetto" was originally pitched to Sammy Davis Jr.. Mac, guitar in hand, played the song in a studio, with onlookers such as Rev. Jesse Jackson and other members of the black activist community. Davis, the only Caucasian man in the room at the time would eventually tell Bowen, "I don't know whether to thank ya, or to kill ya." Davis eventually recorded the tune after Presley's version became a success, but it remained unreleased until a campy Rhino Records "Golden Throats" compilation in 1991. The song became a success for Presley and he continued to record more of Davis' material, like "Memories" and "Don't Cry Daddy". Bobby Goldsboro also recorded some of Davis's songs, like "Watching Scotty Grow", which became a number one Adult Contemporary success for Goldsboro in 1971. Other artists that recorded his material included Vikki Carr, O.C. Smith and Kenny Rogers and The First Edition. "I Believe In Music" often considered to be Davis's signature song, was recorded by several artists (including Marian Love, Louis Jordan, Perry Como, and Davis himself) before it finally became a success in 1972 for the group Gallery.Success as a singerDavis soon decided to pursue a career in country music. He was soon signed to Columbia Records in 1970. His big success came two years later in 1972 when he topped the Country and Pop charts with the success song "Baby Don't Get Hooked on Me". It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in September 1972.Some of Davis's lyrics invoked overtly sexual relationships. "Baby Don't Get Hooked on Me" (in which he pleads with a woman not to become too enamored of him because he doesn't want to commit to a full-time relationship with her) was an example, as were other successful songs such as "Naughty Girl" and "Baby Spread Your Love on Me". He wasn't alone; many country songs popular during the 1970s and 1980s featured sexual themes.During 1974, Davis was awarded the Academy of Country Music's Entertainer of the Year award. Some of Davis' other successes included "Stop and Smell the Roses" (a number one Adult Contemporary success in 1974) (Popular #9), "One Hell of a Woman" (Pop #11), and "Burnin' Thing" (Popular #53). At the end of the 1970s, he moved to Casablanca Records, which was now vending country music and was known primarily for its success with disco diva Donna Summer and rockers KISS. His first success for the company in 1980 was the novelty song "It's Hard To Be Humble" which became his first country music Top 10. He also had another Top 10 song with "Let's Keep It That Way" later in the year. He achieved other successful songs like "Texas In My Rear View Mirror" and "Hooked on Music" which became his biggest country music success in 1981 going to #2. In 1985, he recorded his (to date) last Top Ten country music success with the song "I Never Made Love (Till I Made Love With You)".Acting careerFrom 1974 to 1976, Davis had his own television variety show on NBC, The Mac Davis Show. He made his feature film debut opposite Nick Nolte in the football film, North Dallas Forty (1979) and as a result, was listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1979" by Screen World magazine.Davis also starred in the 1981 comedy film "Cheaper to Keep Her", playing a detective for a neurotic feminist attorney.Davis played Will Rogers in the Broadway production of The Will Rogers Follies. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2000. For his contribution to the recording industry, he has a star symbol on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7080 Hollywood Blvd.In 1980, Davis hosted an episode of The Muppet Show. Davis served as the balladeer for the 2000 telefilm The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood , replacing Don Williams, who served the part in 1997's The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion!, and Waylon Jennings, who narrated the original Dukes of Hazzard TV show. Davis was the first balladeer to appear on screen to welcome the audience and provide exposition. In 1983 Davis appeared in THE STING II, sequel to THE STING as Jake Hooker, a younger relative of Johnny Hooker who was played by Robert Redford in THE STING.In 2001, Davis played a fellow Karaoke competitor to Jon Gries's Sunny Holiday in the Polish brother's film Jackpot. In the film, there was a dispute between Sunny's manager and Davis's character about what song to song to sing, the manager (Garrett Morris) suggested Davis's "Baby Don't get Hooked on Me" which Davis's character claimed just wasn't him.From 1999 to 2004, Davis voiced the characters Sheriff Buford (two episodes) and talk radio host, "the Sports Jock" (two episodes), on the animated series King of the Hill.Davis also guest starred briefly in the 8 Simple Rules episode "Let's Keep Going, Part II" in April 2004 and also had a recurring role as Rodney Carrington's father-in-law on the sitcom Rodney.Winning buyder agrees in advance to pay an additional Mailpostage (Foreign orders will require additional postage) and to remit full payment within 10 days after notification from the seller.
