Mac Davis, hit songwriter for Elvis Presley and '70s solo star, dies at 78

Mac Davis, the singer, songwriter and actor known for recording a string of easygoing country hits in the 1970s and ’80s and for the tunes he wrote for Elvis Presley, including “In the Ghetto” and “A Little Less Conversation,” died Tuesday in Nashville. He was 78.

Davis’ death was confirmed in a Facebook post by his longtime manager, Jim Morey, who’d said earlier that his client had fallen “critically ill” after undergoing heart surgery.

In a statement, Kenny Chesney called Davis “a songwriting hero to me,” and Reba McEntire remembered his “incredible talent” and said he “entertained and spread joy to so many people.”
