Cher’s Mom, Georgia Holt, Releases a Country Album
It's never too late to pursue your passions, even if you're 86 years old. Georgia Holt -- mother of Cher, the iconic Goddess of Pop -- has decided to go country, even as she approaches her ninth decade of life.
Holt is incredibly inspiring, as she just released 'Honky Tonk Woman' on Tuesday (April 30). The former beauty queen, actress, and model recorded the album in Los Angeles in 1980, when she worked with Elvis Presley's musicians, but according to Nashville Gab, it was never released. Over 30 years passed, and the tapes were discovered, restored, and mixed by the musical director of the hit reality competition 'The Voice,' Paul Mirkovich.
Holt's 10-track album 'Honky Tonk Woman' includes one song she sang with her daughter Cher, entitled 'I’m Just Your Yesterday.' Now Cher's fans know who the 'If I Could Turn Back Time' hitmaker got her esteemed vocal abilities from -- her mom.
There are several other stars who have inherited their singing talent from their mothers, including Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum (whose mother is Linda Davis) and Eric Church, who says he owes his musical chops to his mom.
Cher's mom has finally achieved her dream of being a singer, and her album may motivate dreamers of all ages to take a step forward and pursue their goals.
