Louis F. "Chip" Davis, Jr. was born in 1947 in Hamler, Ohio. After touring with the [a=Norman Luboff Choir], he took a job with an Omaha, Nebraska advertising agency writing jingles. These included spots for a local bakery featuring the fictional trucker [a=C.W. McCall]. The spots were co-written with advertising writer [a=Bill Fries], who became the voice of McCall. The spots were so popular, they were persuaded to begin writing non-advertising songs featuring McCall. The most famous of these is the 1975 "Convoy". The duo released a total of five albums between 1974 and 1979.

Davis founded [a=Mannheim Steamroller] in 1974 to showcase his interest in fusing modern popular and classical techniques. He founded [l=American Gramaphone] Records after his initial efforts to secure a label failed to meet with any success; this has been the label for all subsequent Mannheim Steamroller releases.
