Jon Christopher Davis is a Dallas-born singer, songwriter and producer living in McKinney, Texas.

Stan Lynch of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers may have said it best – “It’s as if Don Henley, Elvis Presley and the Everly Brothers met late one night at a Texas Roadhouse parking lot and beat the crap out of each other, and what came out was Jon Christopher Davis. He’s brains, hips and harmonies.”

He’s written songs for Dolly Parton, Hal Ketchum, Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles, Billy Ray Cyrus, Sherrie Austin, Rodney Atkins, Tammy Cochran and several indie artists. “Little Bird,” recorded by Sherrie Austin, peaked at number 4 on Billboard’s Top Country Singles Sales Chart. His heartland songs and melodic/raw voice are often licensed for television.

JCD has recorded for Warner Brothers, Sony, MCA and Palo Duro Records, supplied background vocals on albums for Arista and Curb Records and has been featured on/in ABC, CBS, FOX, CMT, the Style Network, Pentagon Network, CW Network, Oxygen Channel, USA Today, Billboard Magazine, Texas Highways and the Washington Post. USA Today called “The Bottom Line” “one of the most intriguing tracks from the past, present and near future.”

His discography includes work with Vince Gill, Radney Foster, Rodney Crowell, Steve Lukather (Toto), Stan Lynch (The Heartbreakers), Dann Huff (Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban) and David Z (Prince, Jonny Lang).

JCD has shared the stage with Train, Daughtry, The Roots (Jimmy Fallon’s house band), Lyle Lovett, Jack Ingram, Radney Foster, Rodney Crowell, Hal Ketchum, Michael McDonald, Eddie Money, Poco, Pure Prairie League, Restless Heart, Kansas, REO Speedwagon and has performed twice for President George W. Bush.

In 2004, his single, “Lone Star Attitude,” stayed on the Texas Music Chart for over 6 months. The album featuring the single was later picked up for national distribution by Palo Duro Records. Lone Star Attitude has since transitioned into a trademarked brand (Lone Star Attitude® apparel stores at DFW International Airport, C-33 & E-35, and LSA Burger Co. in Denton, TX).

In 2009, JCD released “Demos From the Vault (1999-2009),” a 2-disk collection that includes the moving military tribute with Deryl Dodd, “The Boy I Left Behind.” In 2010, he won the American Cancer Society Song of the Year for Relay For Life. In 2012, he was a featured artist on the critically acclaimed television show, Troubadour TX. In 2014, he released “Last Night’s Dinner Party,” a concept album featuring twists on Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” and ZZ Top’s “Gimme All Your Loving.” In 2016, he teamed up with Hypermedia Nashville and released the singles, “Vinyl Revival,” “Sisters Do,” “Boom Box” and “Crazy’s What I Need,” a duet with Maylee Thomas.
