Mac Davis will always hold a prominent and precious place in the memories of my youth. There was just something in his genuine demeanor that made him so very lovable. The heart is sad for having lost him in this world, but the heart rejoices that he is home with the Lord. Sincere condolences to this fine and special man’s family.

I wrote a Mac Davis Tribute Poem On 10/10/20

Dear Mac,

I graduated high school in 1972, the year you wrote your hit, "Baby, Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me".
You were a talented singer and painter of rhyming words; it was evident for the world to see.

You were a humble, honest, and down to earth man who was loved by many, with a sense of humor that lifted our hearts with joy.
You enjoyed performing, flashing a warm, pleasant smile; you emitted a bright light from a soul of a curly haired, country boy.

I, too, have a love for words and playing Scrabble and Banagrams were two of my favorite games which makes me feel like we're kindred spirits.
For eight years now, writing rhyming poetry, being creative since I was young enjoying the written word to inspire, inform, bring joy and laughter to those who want to hear it.

God blessed you with a beautiful voice and a superlative ability to be a wordsmith with your gift to write flowing, poetic words to showcase and share your singer/songwriter talent.
You were an unforgettable person who made the world a happier place and you're gracing Heaven with your presence and sincere messages that were concise and balanced.

I want to thank God and Mr. Mac's family and friends for loaning his music and his humor to us, for sharing him with all of us. He eased loneliness.
Before the virus prevented me from my weekly visits to my Grandma, who had lost her sight, I would play music from YouTube Music for her on a little speaker Bluetoothed to my phone. I set the little speaker on her tray so she could hear better, and made a playlist just for her that was mostly John Denver and Mac Davis. Her favorite was Mac's Watching Scotty Grow.

Thanks.

Mac Davis..... i have all your albums....(STILL) DO........ you brought so much real life emotions to your songs that i was just a young married mom of 2 totally in awe with everything you did.... I think you came to Fresno Ca for a golf tournment and my husband took me but i don t think i was able to get close to you.....but i tried..... then we went to vegas one year and you put on a show and i was surprised at the language you used that was not the Mac Davis i knew loved and worshipped.... but now i realize we were in Vegas after all and thats how they did shows there:).............. thank you for being so much a part of my young adulthood.....you surely impacted my life as to where i could not believe you could ever die since you were larger than life!!!!!!

I grew up listening to Mac Davis and watching his TV show. Mac was an extremely humble and talented individual. I was very lucky to see him in concert several times. His humor, story telling, and his singing brought such comeraderie at his concerts!
Mac was such a great talent, and he was so very humble.
No one else could hambone like Mac! His smile was infectious! I always looked forward to his stories at his concerts and on his TV show.
Anytime he appeared on TV, his presence brought such joy and laughter. You're one of those people you just don't forget and we'll never see or hear the likes of again. Rest in peace Mac. We're really gonna miss ya! ❤

Back in 1974 when Paul Anka came out with You're having my baby, I swear I think Mac Davis sang that song at his concert because I was in the process of marrying my High School Sweetheart with the last name Davis, so that song meant a lot to me and still does. What a talent and a cutey. We will miss you Mac. Keep singing in Heaven!!

I was so much in love with Mac's words and music. My Texas hubby took me to see him perform twice, Dallas Summer Musical and Will Roger's Follies. Incredible singing, songwriting, stage presents. To his family, wife, Lise; sons, Joel Scott, Cody Lucas, & Noah; and his granddaughter, my sincerest condolences. I have all of his music, and my memories of seeing Mac in concert with my Texas Hubby. I fell in love with his song, "In The Ghetto" when I was 15 growing up in Waco. I followed his whole career, and am grateful we passed through the world at the same time, he as the entertainer and me as the fan. It was perfect to call him The Song Painter. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Such Sadness. Janelle C. Bates

Mac's daddy put in a automatic laundry in Lubbock. My mom managed it.
I played with he and his sister, she wanted to leave private school and go to school with me. She didn't like it and went back to private school.
I was in the 4th grade and he was in the first grade.

Such a sad sad time losing a great talent as Mac Davis. He was my absolute favorite all through my elementary school days watching his comedy show back in the 70's, making up dance routines to his songs with my best friends and talking about the show the next day with my 3rd and 4th grade teachers. I was fortunate to see him at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY back in the day, and so thankful to have lived during his life time. Thank you Mr. Davis for helping the world to "Stop and Smell the Roses". RIP

This is a poem I wrote. It's not great but it's the thoughts within it that counts.

The Singers Songs

No songs have I to sing today.
For the words are lost with you now gone.
The melodies will linger on though.
Of the times I had when I played your songs.
Happy and sad some of them were,
But the Songs You Sang
Give memory to them all.
So I will Treasure Each and Everyone.
And the Memory of You Mac Davis will Live On.
In the Songs I Play and others do hear.
You'll Be There as We A 'll Sing Along.

I was born and raised in Lubbock and all I ever wanted to do was to get out of that city. I have been away for over then years now and every time I hear Texas in my rear view mirror all I want to do is go home. I was fortunate enough to have a teacher give an assignment last may to write about a song that has meaning to me. I wrote about Mac Davis and Texas in my rear view mirror. I understand the feeling of wanting to go home and anytime I have a struggle Mac's music gets put on the turn table and it makes the times a little easier to bare. Thank you for the incredible gift of music and know that you will live on in my heart and in my life.

I’m so sad to hear of Mac Davis death! I will be praying for his family. I’ve always loved listening to him sing. Always thought he was good looking too! I grew up in Lubbock but moved to Southern California when I was 24. I’ve always been proud to say, “I’m from Lubbock, Tx - that’s where Mac Davis is from!” When we moved to California, the song, “Lubbock In My Rearview Mirror” was very popular. In fact, as we were leaving Lubbock for California that song played on the radio. RIP Mac Davis, and thanks for all the years of your singing and writing songs.

When I met him in the early 70's (after a concert in Lubbock), I saw that he was a very kind, down-to-earth sort of guy. I'd met his Uncle Booger Red and Aunt Byrdie Nell Sims when they were both patients at a Lubbock hospital where I worked. They must have told them about me and that I was DEFINITELY a fan. The next time he was in Lubbock, for a concert, he arranged for me and my husband to come backstage and meet him so he could thank me personally for being so nice to his aunt and uncle. WOW!!! That meant so much to me and it said volumes about the kind of man he was! People like him truly make the world a better place. He will be missed!

I have been a fan of Mac Davis for years. My husband and I have been listening to a CD of his recently and heard the news of his passing. He was a very gifted songwriter who could come up with rhyming words for a song title immediately after someone in his audience came up with a song title on the Mac Davis Show.
I'm saddened he passed away far too young.

RIP Mac - Love Your Voice and Talent.

In the early seventies, I was fairly recently back from Vietnam, My mom and dad and I went to Mac's performance at the Montana state fair in Great Falls Montana that year. The only concert I ever went to with my folks, and I went to a lot of concerts back then. We got there early and sat as close to the stage as possible, right up front, the best seats. I noticed this kinda weird dude in a big black hat wandering around the stage trying to look like he belonged there checking this and that prior to the show. It turned out to be Mac and he was checking out the audience. We really enjoyed the show. The night before the show we stayed in the only local motel that had a room in the whole city, a suite. It turned out it was reserved for Mac after the show. That had to be nearly 50 years ago. You can't make this stuff up.

I'm just a broken-hearted fan. I met him when I was 17 and still in high school in Louisville KY. He was opening a show for Helen Reddy and signing autographs at a local store the afternoon of the show. First celebrity I ever met and I thought he was the greatest. Followed his careet through the years, buying all the albums, going to see him in concert whenever he appeared in Louisville, Indianapolis, Lexington or Cincinnati. A few years ago I learned he was performing around Nashville occasionally, so I started making regular drive to his Nashville and Franklin TN shows whenever I found out about one. Loved everything he did and most of all, loved that he was just a really nice guy. Love and prayers to his wife, sons and the rest of the family. He is going to be hugely missed. God bless.

His music is the soundtrack of my life. I loved him when I was 12 years old when I first saw him in concert with my parents. I saved money to buy all his albums. His lyrics became my credo and carried me through many painful times: "I believe in music, I believe in love.... stop and smell the roses along the way." And his profound "Lord let me be someone special, in the eyes of the people who love me..." became my prayer. I have no doubt that his prayer has been answered a million fold. His music gave me hope in hopeless times. Rest in joy, dear man. Thank you so much for the music and the hope.

My condolences to the family, friends and the fans of this dear, sweet Song Painter. I have been a fan for 47 years. I "fell in love" with this young, curly haired man when I was a 13 yr old girl. Thanks to my husband I finally got to see him in Dec, 2017 at the Franklin Theatre, Franklin, TN. It was the most magical night for me and one that I will never forget. Of course he sang all of his hits and we all sang along. To my surprise and delight he told story after story, of his career, his sons, and "his beautiful wife Lise". I sure hope the latest song he was working on about where songs come from gets released. It's obvious that God has whispered a lot of songs in Mac's ear. My dear, sweet Mac..

My heartfelt condolences to the Davis family. What a genius of a songwriter he was. I'm just a fan but very sad to hear of his passing. I feel like Heaven is enjoying some great music.
