Born in 1942, Wayland Holyfield grew up in the Mallettown community of Conway County, Arkansas - an area he still refers to as home.

In 1975, Holyfield achieved his first solo #1 hit, "You're My Best Friend," recorded by Don Williams. He wrote several songs for Williams - and has written for many other artists, including George Strait, Reba McEntire, Barbara Mandrell, Kathy Mattea, Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty, Charley Pride, Randy Travis, The Judds, Mark Chesnutt, John Anderson, Gary Allan, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Oak Ridge Boys, Anne Murray, Charly McClain and others. During his career, Holyfield was writer of over 40 Top Ten hits and 14 #1 hits.

Here in Arkansas, Holyfield is well-known for his song "Arkansas, You Run Deep In Me," which was written for the 1986 Arkansas Sesquicentennial celebration. It was named one of Arkansas's official state songs in 1987.
