Posted by themusicsover on April 22, 2010

Paul Davis
April 21, 1948 – April 22, 2008

Mississippi born singer-songwriter Paul Davis was in his early 20s when he landed his first record deal with BANG Records, the boutique label formed by Bert Berns, Ahmet Ertegun, Nesuhi Ertegun, and Jerry Wexler.  For the next ten years, Davis released a string of semi-hits that barely cracked the Top 50, but in 1978, hit big with “I Go Crazy” which reached #7 on the Billboard charts.  At the time, it set the record for most consecutive weeks (40) for a rock era song in the Top 100.  What followed was a string of pop and country hits for himself as well as others including “Meet Me in Montana” which was a #1 country hit for Dan Seals and Marie Osmond.  Davis died of a heart attack on April 22, 2008.
