Mac Davis was once asked by a TV audience member to write a song about a rubber duck. He instantly wrote: “I was sitting in the bathtub when my toe got stuck. The jerk I made caused a tidal wave and squashed my rubber duck!” Funny guy with a tremendously quick wit. 😂

I am heartbroken this morning learning of the passing of my friend Mac Davis. He was an incredible songwriter and guitar player. He’d penned songs for Elvis to Avicii. More importantly, he was a great husband and a father. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Love ya Mac

Rest in Peace Mac Davis. He was a famous country music star but we knew him mostly as Seth Maxwell in North Dallas Forty- our favorite football movie ever. Supposedly Davis’s QB character was based on Don Meredith. Either way he was the perfect on-screen compliment to Nick Nolte. pic.twitter.com/KTxI5ntivk

We’re sad to hear of the death of #MacDavis (1942–2020) — Singer, songwriter, actor, host, superstar.
“I was blessed with a gift,” he once said, and he shared it with us for 50 years.

I tweeted about Mac Davis and his 1972 “Baby Don’t Get Hooked On Me” LP two days ago and he passed away last night. I feel so bad! Of course, I didn’t know that he was ill or having a heart operation. I hope this doesn’t cost me any karma points. RIP to the great Mac Davis! pic.twitter.com/XTDLYpO6j5

We was talented and funny. I remember watching his tv show. At the end of his show he would compose a song from a random line/sentence from the audience which isn’t easy. He also played spoons and eefed which I’ve never heard done before or since. RIP Mac.

His Record, Happiness was Lubbock Texas in my rear view mirror was The very first song I played as a dj on the radio in 1979 at My first radio station, WBZI in Dayton/Xenia.

This made me SO SAD this morning. He had such a smooth voice, was a phenomenal songwriter, who had a great sense of humor, and seemed to be a genuinely nice person. I remember watching his variety show weekly without fail. RIP Mac.

The funniest thing I ever heard him say was when he was about to turn 40, he fretted and worried about it so much. But the morning of his birthday he woke up, looked in the mirror and said “hey, I still look 39”!

My ex in-laws grew up with him. A few years back, he came to town & I stopped by their house I’ll never forget walking in seeing him, this “big star”, sitting at the table eating a hot dog off of a paper plate. He had a big smile on his face. He was such a wonderful person.
