I have, or I should say had, no idea who Mac Davis is. That was until yesterday when I popped into our local Goodwill Store and saw him staring back at me on the shelf, drinking a glass of wine (which by the way has an ice cube in it. I'm not knocking the idea of an ice cube in a glass of wine, but seriously, not on your album cover).
Mac Davis was born in Lubbock, Texas in 1942 and had a successful career as a country singer, actor and most impressively to me as a songwriter. He penned three number one hits for Elvis Presley, including one of my favorite songs of all time, In the Ghetto.
In listening to the above album today titled It's Hard to Be Humble, I was pleasently surprised by its quality. The songs were catchy, enjoyable, and most importantly, well worth the 99 cents I spent on the album. And before you ask, the radio is a 1962 Zenith Hi-Fi that I also purchased at Goodwill for $19.99 about this time last year.
So that you can enjoy the music of Mac Davis as well, check out the video below of Mr. Davis singing the title track from this album on an episode of The Muppet Show.
