Johnny MacRae

A man behind hits for Conway Twitty, Reba McEntire and Doug Stone died in early July. Johnny MacRae wrote ‘I’d Just Love to Lay You Down’ for Twitty and Stone’s ‘I’d Be Better Off (In a Pine Box)’ in addition to many other songs during a lengthy career that began after a 15-year stint in the U.S. Navy. In total, he charted over two dozen songs and earned several awards. He spent his later years working on his farm in Tennessee. MacRae died on July 3 at the age of 84.
