Country musician Mac davis playing guitar on couch

The passing of automotive legend Carroll Shelby has led to an outpouring of support, including a replay of a toe-tapping melody from country music great Mac Davis. Davis has enjoyed a long and successful career as both a performer and songwriter, with several number one songs including three written for Elvis Presley.

If you watch Mac's tribute to the one and only Carroll Shelby, you'll see his talent on display. Davis took the time to sing his Shelby song that he'd written years before, and you can view it yourself by scrolling below. The lyrics are pretty amazing, and they can be a bit of an elaborated history lesson for enthusiasts who thought Shelby's fame is relegated to a few Mustang GT500 models.
