That was very nice my friend. I wasn't into Mac Davis music, but he was a decent song writer, and when he had a song on the radio it was something you could actually listen to, which is more than you could say for some of the other crap that was popular at the time. Sad to see them go, but he lived a long and happy life, hope I live that long. Apparently Hellen Reddy died on Tuesday at 78 also, born on the same day and died on the same day.
Not a country song by any stretch but Mac Davis did actually have a song that was taken up by the modern soul scene here in the UK. I have it in my collection and it isn't cheap at £100 for the single, if you can find one.
You may never have heard it so I'll put it up. I love it
