Duck Dynasty and “Dancing with the Stars” favorite Sadie Robertson recently asked her great-grandmother “Mamaw” Jo Shackelford to share who inspired her as a young woman growing up.

“My mom and my grandmother,” Shackelford said. “I hadn’t even thought about it, but of course that’s true!”

“The first thing I’d do when I came home from school was go back to my grandmother’s room and tell her what had happened at school that day and listen to her comments, which were always just so sweet and kind,” she added.

And what was the best advice Shakelford’s mother gave her?


“To always be myself. And to stand up straight,” she laughed.
