About the Event
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.”
JCD’s songs have been covered by 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 music and raspy voice are often licensed for television.
JCD’s recorded for Warner Brothers, Sony and MCA 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.”

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,” which became the theme song for The American Fallen Soldiers Project.
