Singer-Songwriter Paul Davis Dies

Paul Davis, a singer-songwriter who had two No. 1 country hits, died Tuesday (April 22) in Meridian, Miss., of a heart attack. He was 60. After minor success with two country singles, Davis first hit the top of the country chart in 1986 with a duet with Marie Osmond, “You’re Still New to Me,” which he co-wrote with Paul Overstreet. He had No. 1 success again the following year when he collaborated with Overstreet and Tanya Tucker to sing “I Won’t Take Less Than Your Love,” which was penned by Overstreet and Don Schlitz. Davis was best known in pop circles for his 1978 single “I Go Crazy,” which was in the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 40 weeks. He recently retired from music to return to his hometown of Meridian.
