Stephen Allen Davis Lyrics Follow
Stephen Allen Davis is an American singer/songwriter. He has written over 18 #1 songs for various artists, most recently the single "Stand Beside Me" for country artist Jo Dee Messina, which spent 3 weeks atop the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart (now Hot Country Songs) and earned Davis a Million Air certificate from BMI for the more than 3 million performances it has received.
Hailing from just outside Nashville, Tennessee, Davis was a nationally ranked tournament water skier in his early teens, but after seeing The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show he decided that music was what he wanted to do. He got his start playing bass in "Billy Osbourne and the Tracers", who gigged in the famous Printer's Alley. After spending a summer in Indianapolis with the band Stephen's parents wanted him to return to Nashville to attend college and so he sought advice from his uncle Harold Bradley on how to get into the music business.
His first cut, "Take Time to Know Her" by Percy Sledge was also his first #1, since then he has had over 400 songs recorded by various artists, including Joe Cocker, Meatloaf, Tammy Wynette, Reba McEntire, Barbara Mandrell and Frank Sinatra. Davis has also released four records of his own. "The Desert Sessions", his most recent project was a live concert that also aired on PBS in the spring of 2009.
