Murfreesboro, TN born & Camden, SC raised singer-songwriter Patrick Davis has made quite a name for himself in his 10 years as a Nashville-based songwriter. He has had songs made famous by Darius Rucker, Lady Antebellum, Jewel, Josh Kelley, Pat Green, Jason Michael Carroll & Casey James. In celebrating over a decade into the journey, with nearly 40 songs cut by other artists, Davis has decided to record and release his own version of a select few of those songs. The Cuts – Volume One will be available on iTunes and Patrick’s website on Friday, July 20th.
“As a songwriter, I’ve literally written & co-written hundreds & hundreds of songs and a select few of those have made it onto artists’ albums and some even to the radio,” says Davis. “It’s an incredible gift having songs I write cut by so many talented artist and I wanted to pay tribute to a few of those tunes and maybe even show a different side to them. Releasing this studio album is perfect way to do just that.”
Davis moved to Music City in early 2002 and spent several years working his way into writing rooms and opening tour slots with the likes of Pat Green, Darius Rucker, Jewel, Lady Antebellum, Hootie & the Blowfish and Jason Michael Carroll. In 2005, Davis inked a publishing deal with EMI Nashville and has been a staff writer for the publishing giant ever since.
