Linda Davis's song "Does He Love You" with Reba is the one song I HAVE to belt every time I hear it.  Best DUET EVER! Linda is a touring artist, a 3 X grammy award winner, and BFFs with Reba… but the title she’s most proud of is mom.  Linda is momma to two girls - Lady A’s Hillary Scott and Riley Jean and I was so excited when she came over to house to record this episode!  I think you'll love it!
