About the Artists
Labeled a ‘song stylist’, Linda 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. She 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 where they recorded a duet, “Does He Love You”, that became a #1 hit and earned both artists several awards including a Grammy for Best Coun- try Vocal Collaboration.
Through the years, Davis 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, she and her family—husband Lang Scott, and daughters Hillary Scott (of Lady Antebellum) and Rylee Scott—released the critically acclaimed, two-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.
In addition to her touring schedule, Linda continues to enjoy songwriting and coaching aspiring singers through her Stage Performance 101 business.
Known for his amazing voice and guitar work, Lang Scott is Nashville signature sound perfection.He grew up in the Lowcountry of South Carolina just west of the Charles- ton coast. Since moving to Nashville in 1982, Lang’s accomplishments include: 1st National Champion of TNN’s You Can Be A Star, Former MCA Recording Artist, Multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances, Guitarist and background vocalist for Reba McEntire (7 years), Has songs recorded by LeeAnn Rimes, JoDee Messina & Linda Davis.
Upon leaving Reba McEntire’s band in 1999, Lang started and remains President and Managing Part- ner of MusicCityNetworks, an Interactive Media company that designs and manages websites and Internet strategies for some of the top artists in the music industry.
He’s been married to recording artist Linda Davis since 1984, and they continue to live in Nashville with their two children Hillary & Rylee.
Bill Whyte’s unique presentation of funny and twisted songs makes him a favorite everywhere he entertains. The Whyte-penned “I’m Goin’ Ugly Early Tonight” which was recorded by Cledus T. Judd, is the perfect howling climax for his stand up-singing routine, which is full of funny songs like “Trailer Park Sexy” and “Retired,” recently recorded by Ray Stevens.
Whyte’s other career is that of a morning radio personality. He has been a morning guy in Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Indianapolis and Nashville and has won numerous broadcast awards, including the CMA Award for Best Large Market Personality. And in 2012 Bill was awarded the industry’s highest honor when he was inducted into the Country Radio Broadcast Hall of Fame.
Whyte’s songs have been recorded by Linda Davis, Brady Seals, Kacey Jones and others.
