Most country music singers making the rounds today would say they grew up a Reba fan. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott is no different, save the fact that her mom, Linda Davis, was Reba’s duet partner on the GRAMMY-winning “Does He Love You.”
Hillary, like, knew Reba growing up.
During the recent ACM Honors event at the Ryman Auditorium, Hillary opened the evening with a performance of “The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia” and was then joined by Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild for a powerful duet performance of “Does He Love You” for which they received a standing ovation. The duo then welcomed Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman for a special performance of “Little Rock” in tribute to Reba McEntire. Fairchild, Schlapman, and Scott then presented McEntire with the Mae Boren Axton Service Award.
Hillary, per the usual, was perfection.
The 11th Annual ACM Honors™, an evening dedicated to recognizing the special honorees and off-camera category winners from the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards™. Portions of the event, held at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, were taped for a two-hour special that will air on Friday, September 15 (9:00 – 11:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
