Who was Stephen Allen Davis?

Stephen Allen Davis was a singer-songwriter from the United States. He is credited as “Steve Davis” on many of his songs. 

He has written 18 number-one songs for various artists, including country artist Jo Dee Messina’s single “Stand Beside Me,” which lasted three weeks atop the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.

It earned Davis a triple Million-Air certificate from BMI for the more than three million performances it has garnered. The album also received a Triple Platinum certification.

Musical career:

Stephen was born in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 4, 1949. When he saw The Beatles perform on The Ed Sullivan Show, he then developed a passion for music.

When he was 14 years old, Stephen established his first bands, began performing at parties, and began writing songs. 

With the band “Billy Osbourne and the Tracers,” which played at Nashville’s notorious Printer’s Alley, he landed his first professional bass gig. 

Stephen’s parents wanted him to go back to Nashville to go to college after they saw him perform with the band at a biker bar in Indianapolis during the course of the summer.

Stephen intended to pursue a full-time music and songwriting career once he was back in town. 

His first publishing deal as a songwriter and his first Top #5 album resulted from that meeting with Norro Wilson. In 1968 and 1969, Davis received two BMI awards for the song.

R&B and Pop awards were given out first and second, respectively. Davis has since gone on to win 17 additional BMI awards with over three million performances of his tunes.

“Take Time to Know Her” was the title of that Percy Sledge song. His first significant record deal was with RCA, which he did when the song began to climb the charts. Just turning 18, he.

Since then, numerous singers, including Joe Cocker, Meat Loaf, Tammy Wynette, Reba McEntire, and Barbara Mandrell, have recorded more than 400 of his compositions. Additionally, Davis has nine LPs out.

Just saw the very sad news that Stephen Allen Davis passed away last night. Many of you have probably never heard of him. He was a prolific songwriter and had a successful album in the mid-’70s. One of my all-time favorite songs of his is ‘47 Martin.

We had become friends over the last few years and I had several long phone conversations with him from his home in Kentucky. The last time we spoke, he told me the story behind this song and the real-life encounter that led him to write this. Rest in peace Stephen.

Oh my gosh… I cannot believe this! I just received the sad news that Stephen Allen Davis has passed away. Stephen was so amazingly talented and such a soulful man! So unique! I was and will always be so proud to call him my friend. When I first met Stephen, he was very young, living in. As I recall, it was an apartment in an older home on music row.

This was a long time ago. Stephen had just had his hit on “ Take Time To Know Her” around that time. He was so cool and independent! 

Stephen had so much energy! He had a huge grand piano in the room and that was about it. He was all about the music and songs.

Davis lived and breathed it. Our paths crossed throughout the years and he was always a friend to me. I loved his spirit! Stephen is most definitely in his Heavenly home now. He will surely be missed here. Sincerely loved, missed, and remembered forever. My heart and prayers are with his family at this time. Rest In Peace Stephen.

I’m sorry to hear that Steve has passed!! I met him only once when Costo and I first started playing. He gave me some pointers on the Bass and took off from there!! Wish I could have talked to him again.

My Prayers for Costo and his family!!

What a special guy.

We spent quite a bit of time writing, which turned into lengthy conversations. The conversation was always so good. I will miss him. Peace and love to a gifted Songsmith whose passing will leave the world a little more empty.

God Bless.
