Linda Davis in Concert

The Sooner Theatre, Norman, OK

Info: Labeled a ‘song stylist’, Davis’ unique ability to interpret a song has made her one of Nashville's favorite vocalists. As her talents began to catch the attention of label executives, she landed her first record deal with CBS/ Epic Records.
Davis quickly gained a legion of friends and fans in the music industry, one being superstar Reba McEntire. Their mutual respect led them into the studio together where they recorded a duet entitled Does He Love You that went on to become a #1 hit and earn both artists several awards including a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Collaboration. Through the years, the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame member has played to sold-out crowds with the likes of Garth Brooks, George Strait, Reba McEntire and Kenny Rogers just to name a few. In 2016, Linda and her family, including husband Lang Scott, and daughters Hillary Scott (of Lady Antebellum) and Rylee Scott, released the critically acclaimed, 2-time GRAMMY-winning album, Hillary Scott & The Scott Family - Love Remains, which topped the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Album's chart.  Davis is currently on the road performing with the great Kenny Rogers on his final world tour, "The Gambler's Last Deal." In addition to her touring schedule, Linda continues to enjoy songwriting and coaching aspiring singers through her Stage Performance 101 business. Davis will be joined in an Opry-style show featuring her husband, Lang Scott, and daughter, Rylie Scott and The Rodeo Opry Band.
