Linda Kaye Davis was born November 26, 1962 in Dotson, Texas. She made her singing debut on a local radio show at age six. By the time she was 20, Davis moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where she paired up with singer Skip Eaton to form the duo Skip & Linda. Skip & Linda signed to MDJ Records and had three minor singles on the Billboard country charts.[1] [edit] In a Different Light and Linda Davis After Skip & Linda parted ways, Davis found work as a jingle singer, and subsequently as a backing vocalist for Reba McEntire. Davis's first solo chart entry came in 1988 on Epic Records, although it was not until 1991 that she released her debut album In a Different Light on Liberty Records. This album produced two chart singles, but no Top 40 hits. It was followed by a self-titled second album in 1992, which did not produce any chart singles at all. [edit] "Does He Love You" and Shoot for the Moon Davis saw her biggest chart success in 1993 when she and McEntire recorded their duet "Does He Love You". Davis's only Number One country hit, it also won her and McEntire a Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Collaboration that year.[1] Soon afterward, Davis signed to Arista Nashville and recorded her third album, Shoot for the Moon. This album's lead-off single, the Mac McAnally composition "Company Time", fell short of the Top 40. It was followed by "Love Didn't Do It" at #58. Davis, along with Trisha Yearwood and Martina McBride, sang guest vocals on McEntire's mid-1995 cover of the Patti LaBelle/Michael McDonald song "On My Own", although only McEntire received chart credit for it. [edit] Some Things Are Meant to Be Davis did not enter Top 40 on the country charts again until 1996 with the title track of her 1996 album Some Things Are Meant to Be, her second album for Arista. This song peaked at #13 on the country charts, becoming her highest solo chart peak. Following it were "A Love Story in the Making" (co-written by former NRBQ member Al Anderson) at #33, and "Walk Away", which failed to chart. Also included on this album was the song "What Do I Know", released by Ricochet that same year as its debut single. [edit] I'm Yours Davis's fifth album, I'm Yours, was released in 1998 on DreamWorks Records, then a newly-established record label. Its lead-off single, "I Wanna Remember This, was also featured on the soundtrack to the film Black Dog. This song peaked at #20 in 1998, followed by the title track at #38 and "From the Inside Out" at #60. After this latter song, Davis exited DreamWorks. [edit] 2003-present In 2003, Davis self-released a Christmas album with her husband, Lang Scott, and their daughter, Hillary (b. April 1, 1984). Two more self-released albums, I Have Arrived and Young at Heart, followed in 2004 and 2007, respectively. Hillary founded the country music group Lady Antebellum in 2006.
