ALBANY, GA (WALB) – One of country music's top songwriters is from Albany, and he's back home  to help one of his best friends.   Country music fans certainly know Dallas Davidson's songs.     Thursday, He played "That's how country boys roll" for us, a song recorded by Billy Currington.

Right now, his song "All About Tonight" by Blake Shelton is number one for the third week in a row.   Artists including Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and Brooks and Dunn have also recorded his songs.

Davidson said, "Those are my heroes.  I still can't quite get my head wrapped around how I used to go to their concerts and have a blast listening to their mission and now they're singing my songs, so super cool."  

Thursday night, you can hear Davidson at Cancer Ties, a fundraiser to help Jamie Taylor.     Davidson said it's the least he can do to help a friend who helped him when he was in need.      Cancer Ties starts Thursday at 6 PM at the DoubleGate Country Club.   Tickets are $20.
