David and Valerie Mayfield

David and Valerie Mayfield don’t shy away from associating themselves with their more famous offspring. The couple makes it a point, they told The Daily Times a couple of years ago, to tell fans that they are indeed the parents of singer-songwriter Jessica Lea Mayfield and David Mayfield, bandleader of the David Mayfield Parade. “We want them to come see us and see where (the kids) got their talent!” David said with a laugh. “Right now, we’re on tour together as a duet, and we’re calling it ‘The Kids Aren’t Holding Us Back’ tour, because we think we’re a lot better without them!” He kids, of course — the Mayfields would be falling down on the job if they didn’t spend some of their empty nest years giving their children a hard time. But the music he and his wife make together stands wholly on its own, anchored in the musical journey they’ve been on together for 35 years.
