July 31st Proclaimed as Mac Davis Day

Lubbock welcomes home Mac Davis with his own day and with his own street. City council members met late Friday night and voted to re-name a portion of 6th St. From now on, 6th Street from University to Texas Avenue will be called Mac Davis Lane.

"I've said a million times its Buddy Holly this and Buddy Holly that every time you come into town. I've always felt like the red-headed step child, but it's nice to have a street named after you, especially the location, it's right where I grew up," says Mac Davis, singer.

Mac Davis returned to Lubbock this weekend to play in a celebrity golf tournament as a benefit for the Texas Tech golf team. He's best known for his hit "Lubbock, In My Rearview Mirror."
