Country Stars Who Have Famous Family Members
Talent seems to run through bloodlines — just look at the Kardashians (just kidding!) — but it may come as a surprise that many of your favorite country singers also have relatives who are also famous.
Lady Antebellum frontwoman Hillary Scott was raised in fame, as her mom is the iconic Linda Davis. It's safe to say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree in that case! Of course, that's not the only instance of a country-singing parent-child relationship. "Die a Happy Man" hitmaker Thomas Rhett is his dad Rhett Akins' pride and joy. Akins still sings with the Peach Pickers, and he's still songwriting a lot — sometimes even for his talented son.
But here's one that may shock you ... a member of A Thousand Horses is related to not one, but two, men who are also pretty big musicians in another genre. Charles Kelley's brother is also a big-time crooner, and we all know who Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter is. Then there is Tim McGraw, who came from a MLB player, even if he didn't know it for many years.
