Former dancer and waitress whose most noteworthy claim to fame is being country singer Tim McGraw's mother. She got pregnant with McGraw while in high school by pitcher Frank "Tug" McGraw.
She married Horace Smith and the future country singer (born Samuel Smith) grew up believing his stepfather was his biological father instead of the MLB player until Tim found out after discovering his own birth certificate at age 11.
She'd been called back to audition for the Dick Clark show Where the Action Is as a dancer, but had to decline due to her pregnancy.
Tim placed a small photo her in the liner notes of his album Sundown Heaven Town.
Her daughter-in-law is Faith Hill.
