Mac Davis, the country-music artist and songwriter behind some of Elvis Presley’s most indelible recordings, died Tuesday at 78. Davis became “critically ill following heart surgery in Nashville,” according to a tweet from his family on Monday. His manager confirmed the entertainer’s death in a statement.

Born in Lubbock, Texas, in 1942, Davis would evolve into a country and adult-contemporary crossover star with solo hits like “Baby Don’t Get Hooked on Me,” “Stop and Smell the Roses,” and “One Hell of a Woman.” In 1974, he was named Entertainer of the Year by the Academy of Country Music, beating out nominees like Loretta Lynn and Merle Haggard.
