American country music singer, songwriter, and actor, Mac Davis has died on Tuesday at the age of 78. His manager confirmed the entertainer’s death in a statement.
“It’s with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of Mac Davis.” His manager, Jim Morey said, “He was surrounded by the love of his life and wife of 38 years, Lise, and his sons Scott, Noah, and Cody. Mac has been my client for over 40 years, and more importantly.. my best friend. He was a music legend but his most important work was that of a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend. I will miss laughing about our many adventures on the road and his insightful sense of humor. When there was a tough decision to be made he often told me “You decide. I’m going to the golf course!”
He continued, “To quote from his song I Believe in Music… ‘I could just sit around making music all day long / As long as I’m making my music ain’t gonna do nobody no harm / And who knows maybe I’ll come up with a song” And he did…time after time.”
