Jim Reeves’ music catalog still generates significant income.A trial to determine how to divide royalties earned by the late country great Jim Reeves got under way Monday in Davidson County Probate Court, with testimony about the singer’s widow’s declining health and unsanitary living conditions at the time her second husband made deals to sell Reeves’ property and memorabilia.
Davis has been the central character in the ongoing legal battle, which predated Mary’s 1999 death. He was married to Mary Reeves Davis for 30 years. In the last several years of her life, her relatives grew concerned about their relationship.
When both Mary Reeves Davis and Terry Davis were signing off on property sales and making deals to transfer Jim Reeves’ royalty rights and memorabilia, she was suffering from dementia, according to her physician Dr. Anderson Spickard, whose previous deposition was read aloud in court.
About the same time, Department of Human Services officials were investigating reports of the woman living in unsanitary conditions. Investigators found more than 100 dead cats in the freezer of the Rutherford County farm that she shared with Terry Davis, and numerous live cats and animal feces littered the home.
Mary Davis was subjected to “degrading comments” and “verbal abuse” and was observed with numerous bruises, according to DHS social worker Debra Keener’s testimony. Terry Davis objected to the reading of the Department of Human Services’ findings into the record as irrelevant.
Outside of court, Davis said he is frustrated that he is still battling claims more than a dozen years later for what he believes is rightfully his inheritance.
