Paul Davis, a singer and songwriter whose soft rock hit "I Go Crazy"
stayed at the top of the charts for weeks after its release in 1977,
has died at a Mississippi hospital.
Davis died Tuesday at Rush Foundation Hospital in Meridian, the city
where he grew up and returned to years later. His cousin, James
Edwards of Nashville, said Davis died of a heart attack. Davis was 60.
Davis was a singer and songwriter, whose other popular hits included
"65 Love Affair;" "You're Still New To Me," a country duet with Marie
Osmond; and "Ride 'Em Cowboy."
His 1977 album "Singer of Songs -- Teller of Tales" featured the
ballad "I Go Crazy."
According to Billboard's Web site the song had a slow climb up the
charts, peaking at No. 7 eight months after its release. The song
stayed in the Top 100 for 40 more weeks.
