Linda Davis Shares Her Experience Being Hillary Scott’s Mother and Grandmother To Her Children
I’m a working mother still, a working grandmother still, I’m a working wife. I’m doing the same thing I’ve always done, thankfully, what a blessing.
Linda Davis On The Value of Her Christian Upbringing
I want to be sure my story includes my Christian raising, because that’s everything. I’m so thankful. Not that I stayed on the straight and narrow the whole time. But I’m not pretending – don’t want y’all to think that – it was always there.
Linda Davis Shares When She Discovered Her Passion For Music
I discovered my singing voice when I was just a little girl. After seeing Loretta Lynn on the Grand Ole Opry on my TV set, watching HeeHaw, seeing Barbara Mandrell and so many, Tammy Wynette… And I loved the guys too: Ronnie Milsap, Willie Nelson, George Jones, Merle… All of that spoke and sung to me.
Linda Davis Opens Up About Meeting Hillary Scott’s Father For The First Time
My goodness, I was 19 and he was 20, and he was just a handsome man – he still is. Back then it was like, “Oh goodness I just saw a beautiful man.” And when he opened his mouth to sing, you know, you just see talented people and you’re just attracted to them. I guess he must’ve felt the same.
Hillary Scott Shares What She Would Tell Her Younger Self
I’d say “Hold on.” The tired you feel, and the miles on your car are worth it because it’s really you’re having so much fun. And you get to a point to where you miss what it felt like, for it to feel new.
