Shoot for the Moon, the third album by country music artist Linda Davis, was the first to achieve placement on the Billboard Music Charts. It was the first album released following a win at the 1993 Grammy Awards for Best Country Vocal Collaboration (with country superstar Reba McEntire) for their hit "Does He Love You." The album rose to the #28 position on the Country Albums chart, and two of its tracks were relatively minor hits on the singles charts: "Company Time" at #43, and "Love Didn't Do It" at #58.

"In Pictures" was later recorded by Alabama on their 1995 album of the same name.

Tim DuBois, president of Arista's Nashville division, called the album "rushed out".[2]
