Linda Davis has one of the most beautiful voices in country music. She started making it big by performing on tour with Reba, as her background singer. Some Things Are Meant To Be is a great album filled with some great material. The title track is a beautiful love song that a lot of romantics will love. Love Story In The Making is a great love song as well. Always Will is a bluesy type song that could of been a hit if released. The surprise is the duet with Reba McEntire, titled If I Could Live Your Life. This is an underrated singer who deserves a listen, give her a try you will fall in love with Linda Davis' music. I also suggest you try her Im Yours album.

Linda Davis is best known as the mother of Hillary Scott, a co-lead singer with Lady Antebellum, but she has also been part of Reba McEntire's road show and recorded three duets with Reba. She tried really hard to establish herself as a country singer but never quite made it. Linda recorded this album for Arista, when it looked like she might be on the brink of the breakthrough.

This is a wonderful album, which begins with the title track (Linda's biggest solo hit, which didn't quite make the top 10, stalling at 13) and ending with If I could live your life, the least well known of her three duets with Reba; the other two (Does he love you, Face to face) both appeared on Reba's albums. Other great songs include What do I know (later covered by Ricochet), Neither one of us (perhaps my favourite here) and Walk away,

Only the American DJs who chose not to play her solo music can truly explain why Linda failed to make the breakthrough, but maybe age has something to do with it. Who knows? At least she has the consolation of Hillary's success. I have some of Lady Antebellum's music, but while I like it, I prefer Linda's music.

Linda Davis made it big in the early 90s with her duet with Reba McEntire titled "Does He Love You". It won her a Grammy, but she had no other big hits, except for the title track of this album which was a top 10 hit. She shuffled around from label to label, now she just released a new album called I HAVE ARRIVED which you can only get from her website.
This 1996 album shows a lot of growth and promise in Linda. The title track is a smooth midtempo ballad that has a great hook. Linda's voice is so pure and she knows how to emote well. "Love Story In The Making" is a nice uptempo song that works well with her voice. I really like the song "Always Will", there's a certain quality to it, her voice combined with the powerful lyrics. "What Do I Know" is another great song, an excellent ballad. There's also another duet with Reba on this one, this time called "If I Could Live Your Life". They also did one on Reba's 1998 album IF YOU SEE HIM which is the best one in my opinion, it's called "Face To Face".
Overall, she doesn't get nearly enough attention as she deserves, she has a great voice and this CD is evidence of her talent. Also check out I'M YOURS.

I totally agree that Linda Davis is very under rated. And she should have been bigger. This is a good cd. and her earlier Shoot For The Moon was also. My favorite song on here is the title track Some Things Are Meant To Be. And Love Story In The Making is also very good. And she does another duet with Reba If I Could Live Your Life to end the cd.

Linda Davis has a talent that should not go unnoticed. She has a wonderful voice. She does an amazing job with the songs she performs. This is a solid country album. I highly recommend this album to everyone. She has a God-given talent and knows how to use it.
