The “Groundhog Day” actress sat with her daughter – actress and country blues singer, Rainey Qualley – to announce their role in partnering with Extra Strength Tylenol to launch, “Stories of Strength.” The “Footloose” star also talked about how her strong work ethic was attributed to the strength she saw in her parents while growing up.

“There were many challenges I saw in both, my mother and father while growing up. She was a single parent raising four kids and she still managed to go back to school to earn a degree and my father worked in lumber, a job he loved, way into his 80s,” explained the L’Oreal spokesperson since 1985.

Her daughter, star of “Falcon Song,” has been inspired by her mother’s strength, which had allowed her to be strong for her up and coming career in country music. Qualley’s tenacity shine through in the face of the competitive music industry; she is destined to be a sensation with her latest song, "Turn Me On Like the Radio."

“You know, my mother has been in the business for a long time, she never missed a day of work or ever came in late because she cared so much knowing how many people she would let down whenever production is held up in this business. I am inspired by her strength,” Qualley proudly shared.

The heart-to-heart interview wrapped up so Ms. MacDowell could catch the next flight back to the set of “Cedar Cove” for more taping while daughter Rainey Qualley, flew back to Nashville to resume her country blues singing career.

In “Falcon Song,” Qualley had a starring role who played Sarah Lou, the granddaughter of a rancher living in a western town; the movie was directed by Jason Brown.

In “Cedar Cove,” MacDowell plays the role of Municipal Court Judge Olivia Lockhart on the Hallmark Channel, a story based on a book series written by author, Debbie Macomber; the book series and the movie have grown in popularity and has amassed a fan following.
