When the Grammy Museum hosted a group of songwriters to inaugurate its new Songwriters Hall of Fame Gallery, bringing in Hal "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" David, Ashford and Simpson ("Ain't No Mountain High Enough"), Paul "Love Boat" Williams, and Lamont "How Sweet It Is" Dozier, Mac Davis said he felt like mudflaps on a Cadillac.

Pshaw. With songs like "In The Ghetto" and "Memories," Davis is right up there with the greats, and courtesy of The Grammy Museum at LA Live, you can hear the performance he gave that night.

By the way, Mac Davis's gorgeous wife Lise is a huge KPCC and Off-Ramp fan.
