Love Me Again 

Review by Mike O’Cull, independent music journalist. 

DK Davis is a male vocalist and recording artist with a track record of success. He made the Billboard charts back in the day with his Number One video, “I Fought the Law (and the Law Won”). It was featured on TNN’s Video Country as well as numerous broadcast stations worldwide. Davis has been riding a comeback wave lately and his latest album, Love Me Again, seems destined to recapture the popularity and excitement of those days and go even further. His smooth vocal style and blend of classic country and adult contemporary sounds is a potent combination and will certainly attract a large new audience. 

Love Me Again features one new song, the title track “Love Me Again” that was written by Gary Puckett, and 11 of Davis’ past hit songs. “Love Me Again” is an emotional piano-centered ballad that recalls the 70s pop country of Elvis and Kenny Rogers. It’s an “asking for forgiveness” type of song with a heartfelt vibe, a strong bridge, and a beautiful arrangement. Davis lays down a velvety vocal that no one could refuse and it’s impossible to believe he’s being anything but sincere.  

The other songs on Love Me Again will be familiar to Davis’ many followers and still sound great. “Goodbye is the Wrong Way” is a solid mid-tempo cut with an unexpected chromatic instrumental hook and lyrics about not letting love slip away. “Suspicion” delivers more of Davis’ signature 70s pop sound and features a dramatic chorus worthy of The King, himself. Speaking of The King, Davis does an excellent job on an energetic cover of Elvis’ gem “Suspicious Minds” that proves that a hit song will always be a hit song. Other bright spots here include “You’re in the Country” and “Don’t Cha Know.” DK Davis is a classic American singer with a style that will appeal to fans of Elvis, Conway Twitty, and many of the 20th Century’s best voices. If that sounds like you, snap this one up.
