There’s not much that Gail Davies hasn’t done, even if she hasn’t always gotten the credit she’s due. She arrived in town during the latter part of the ’70s, a singing, songwriting and soon-to-be producing woman who knew her mind — something Nashville was none too ready for at the time. She was the first female in these parts to take the reins in the studio. There’s plenty more to the story than that — a slew of self-produced entries on the country charts, writing and producing for other acts, a prodigiously talented son, and more.

Davies spent the past seven years writing an autobiography to fill in the gaps, aptly titled The Last of the Outlaws. Still in fine, full-bodied voice, she’ll be signing the new book after she and her crack string band — Chris Scruggs (that son of hers) on guitar, Rob Price on bass, Patty Mitchell on mandolin and Buddy Spicher on fiddle — do their thing.
