Linda Davis with Lang Scott, Bill Whyte, and Brent Rowan
November 28, 2009
Linda Davis is a name Nashville has known and loved for many years. You may recall the Grammy Award Winning hit with Reba “Does He Love You”. That took an already wildly popular Linda Davis to the top of Nashville’s talented artists/writers. Davis signed with Dreamworks to do many collaborations such as “Prince of Egypt” that was a mega seller. Her husband Lang Scott will also be along for the evening. A recording artist in his own right, Lang played guitar and was a backup vocalist for Reba McEntire for eight years.
Bill Whyte, a radio personality, a singer, a song-writer and an all around hilarious guy. He's written with Linda Davis, Billy Dean, Blake Mevis, Keith Anderson, Wil Nance, Steve Dean, Bobby Tomberlin, Sherrie Austen, Brian McComas, Tony Stampley, Lisa Shaffer and others. Yet he's worked with Jeff Dunham, Heywood Banks, and Larry The Cable Guy to name a few. After 20 years in Nashville, Brent Rowan is perhaps the most prolific and sought-after studio guitar player on Music Row. Since breaking into the industry as lead guitarist on John Conlee's "Friday Night Blues," Rowan has worked over 10,000 recording sessions representing well over 100,000,000 records sold. His credits include cuts by leading country and pop artists of the last two decades, among them George Strait, Shania Twain, Sting, Brian Wilson, Randy Travis, Neil Diamond, Olivia Newton-John, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Alabama. A five-time nominee for CMA's Instrumentalist of the Year Award and an Academy of Country Music Guitarist of the Year, Rowan has already put together the kind of track record left by only a handful of legendary Nashville session players.
