It’s a peaceful road off a country lane, surrounded by untamed nature. It leads to Glover’s St. Helena Island home, the one her family moved into when she was 5; the one she moved out of when she left for college. From there, Glover’s parents and cousin Lindsey Middleton drove her in the family’s white Suburban to drop her off at the Savannah airport to compete in the Hollywood rounds of “American Idol.” – Read more at IslandPacket
