Mac Davis Meets Steele, Buxton and Green at CRS

Mac Davis received a standing ovation Thursday (March 1) when introduced during at an informal guitar pull at Country Radio Seminar at the Nashville Convention Center. Davis was welcomed onstage by fellow singer-songwriters Jeffrey Steele, Sarah Buxton and Pat Green as they performed some of the most successful songs they’ve written. Steele’s selection included Rascal Flatts’ and Montgomery Gentry’s “My Town” while Green’s choices included the title song from his 2001 album, Carry On. Buxton, whose debut album for Lyric Street Records will be released later this year, offered several of her originals, including Keith Urban’s current hit, “Stupid Boy.” Davis opened with “Watching Scotty Grow,” a 1971 hit for Bobby Goldsboro. Written about his own son, Davis introduced the song by noting, “Scotty is now 43.” When the audience requested Davis’ 1972 pop hit, “Baby Don’t Get Hooked on Me,” he quipped, “I don’t know if I remember all the words,” before performing it.
