He was barely out of his teens when he was scouted by Stax Records president Jim Stewart, who hired him to put together the label’s house band, Booker T. & The M.G.’s and also work as their A&R man.

It would lead to him co-writing, producing and playing on many a legendary recording, perhaps most famously of all, Otis Redding hit (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay.

Mac Davis, the country singer-songwriter who wrote several hits for Elvis Presley, has died following heart surgery, his manager Jim Morey confirmed. He was 78. Davis was also a prolific actor: In addition to starring in various TV specials, he had his own show, The Mac Davis Show, from 1974 to 1976.

Steve Cropper said this afternoon: “Today the world has lost a super talent. His music will live forever but there will never be another MAC DAVIS. Mac, God bless you where ever you are.”
