She began singing in her early childhood, making a local radio show at age six. Davis moved to Nashville when she was twenty to further her career.
Davis moved to Tennessee and became a receptionist for a small studio. She occasionally sang demos and jingles. Shortly after starting her job she met a songwriter who became her husband: Lang Scott. After marrying in Spring 1984, they had two daughters: Their daughters are Hillary Scott (April 1, 1986) and Rylee Jean Scott (2000).
Davis's first solo chart entry came in 1988 on Epic Records, although it was not until 1991 that she released her first album In a Different Light on Liberty Records. This album produced two chart singles, but no Top 40 hits. That same year, Davis co-wrote the title track of Dawn Sears's debut album What a Woman Wants to Hear. A year later, Davis released her second album, Linda Davis, which did not produce any chart singles at all. Reba McEntire then chose Davis as a backing vocalist for her road band.
Davis had 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. Soon afterward, Davis signed to Arista Nashville and recorded her third album, Shoot for the Moon. This album's first single, the Mac McAnally composition "Company Time", failed to enter the Top 40. It was followed by "Love Didn't Do It" at No. 58. Davis, along with Trisha Yearwood and Martina McBride, sang guest vocals on McEntire's mid-1995 cover version of the Patti LaBelle/Michael McDonald song "On My Own", although only McEntire received chart credit for it.
Davis's fifth album, I'm Yours, was released in 1998 on DreamWorks Records, then a newly established record label. Its first single, "I Wanna Remember This", was used on the soundtrack to the film Black Dog. The song peaked at No. 20 in 1998, followed by the title track at No. 38 and "From the Inside Out" at No. 60. After this latter song, Davis left DreamWorks. She was signed to Kenny Rogers' Dreamcatcher Records in 2000.
In 2003, Davis self-released a Christmas album with her husband, Lang Scott, and their daughter, Hillary (b. April 1, 1986). 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 A in 2006, who were known as Lady Antebellum up until 2020.
In 2009, Davis was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.
Davis joined Lulu Roman (of Hee Haw fame) for a cover version of Anne Murray's "You Needed Me" on Roman's 2013 album At Last.
In 2013 & 2015, Davis toured with fellow country singer Kenny Rogers and will again accompany him on his "The Gambler's Last Deal" tour in 2017.
Currently, Linda Davis is 60 years, 0 months and 6 days old. Linda Davis will celebrate 61st birthday on a Sunday 26th of November 2023.
