Popular singer-songwriter Jon Christopher Davis returns to the Lakeside Music Series at The Shops at Lakeside on Friday, July 21, 7:30-9:30 pm.
Note the later start time adopted this week that will remain in effect through August and early September.
JCD is stepping in for his friend Crystal Yates, who will return to Lakeside in September or October.
The Dallas native has written songs for Dolly Parton, Hal Ketchum, Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles, Billy Ray Cyrus, Sherrie Austin, Rodney Atkins, and Tammy Cochran.
Davis’ composition “Little Bird,” which was recorded by Sherrie Austin, peaked at number 4 on Billboard’s Top Country Singles Sales Chart.
Many of his heartland-country-rock songs have been licensed for television.
JCD has shared the concert stage with Jack Ingram, Radney Foster, Rodney Crowell, Lyle Lovett, Hal Ketchum, Joe Ely, Poco, Pure Prairie League, Restless Heart, Michael McDonald, Eddie Money, Train, Daughtry, The Roots (Jimmy Fallon’s house band), Uncle Kracker, Kansas, REO Speedwagon and many others. He’s also performed twice for the President of the United States.
“It’s as if Don Henley, Elvis Presley and the Everly Brothers met late one night at a Texas Roadhouse parking lot,” said Stan Lynch, from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, “and beat the crap out of each other.
“What came out was Jon Christopher Davis. He’s brains, hips and harmonies.”
