Jimmie Davis

~ Person


James Houston "Jimmie" Davis (September 11, 1899 – November 5, 2000) was a singer and songwriter of both sacred and popular songs who served for two nonconsecutive terms from 1944-48 and from 1960–64 as the governor of his native Louisiana. Although September 11, 1899 is commonly accepted as his date of birth, no official documentation exists.

Davis was a nationally popular country music and gospel singer from the 1930s into the 1960s, occasionally recording and performing as late as the early 1990s. He was inducted into six halls of fame, including the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame (SGMA), and the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.
