His early work writing for Elvis Presley produced the hits "Memories", "In the Ghetto", "Don't Cry Daddy", and "A Little Less Conversation". A subsequent solo career in the 1970s produced hits such as "Baby, Don't Get Hooked on Me".
As a recording artist, he was named Country Music's Entertainer of the Year in 1975. He made a film debut in 1979 in "North Dallas Forty."
A talented kid, he made up tunes. Bright in school, he skipped grades. Davis was a songwriter before a performer, with a first album, "Phantom."

His second son was born July 1989.
