There once was a time when Reba’s hair was as big as her hits YouTube

Nashville’s Music Row is a wonderful place — streets lined with recording studios and songwriting rooms.

You just never know what’s going on behind those doors.

Had you been walking by those songwriting rooms and recording studios on June 9, 1993, however, you’d have been walking by some real magic in the making. That was the day that Reba McEntire and Linda Davis walked into the studio to record their smash hit “Does He Love You.”

An added track for Reba’s “Greatest Hits Volume Two CD,” the song was a monster. Not only did it top topping the charts, but it also won the Grammy for “Best Country Vocal Collaboration,” the CMA award for “Vocal Event of the Year” and a TNN/Music City News award for “Best Vocal Collaboration.”

Still, it’s hard to believe that with songs like “Fancy,” “Is There Life Out There” and “Whoever’s In New England” in her repertoire, “Does He Love You” turned out to be the most awarded song in Reba’s illustrious career.

And while this was Linda Davis’ only trip to the top of the charts, she has had the chance to celebrate many other No. 1’s with her daughter, who is none other than Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum.
