Hillary Scott
Family is an important thing to Lady Antebellum singer

By Timothy Yap, hallels.com

  It’s the one thing that shines brightly during a 20-minute conversation that is ostensibly to promote an upcoming concert for the country artist’s band Lady Antebellum — the role that family has played in her life, in her creativity, in her spirituality, especially of late.

  And that’s all of her families.

  There’s one she has with her husband, drummer Chris Tyrrell, and the daughter they have together; there’s the Scott family, which is also the Scott Family, a group featuring her mother Linda Davis, her father Lang and her sister Rylee, who have just recorded the album Love Remains, which released July 29; and there is, of course, Lady Antebellum, the chart-topping country trio that she has been a part of for the past decade, along with Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley.


Hillary with Lady Antebellum

  “You know, both Lady A and the Scott Family they’re a dynamic, it’s a real thing,” the Nashville native Scott says. “You’ve got the family dynamic of nobody has known me longer than my mom, dad and little sister, and then with the boys, it’s like they’re my brothers, really.

  “And I kind of consider both of them family projects. It’s just neither one of the boys can look at me and go, ‘I changed your diapers, you better not smart off to me,’ like my mom and dad can.”

  She sticks with the other two members of Lady A for another 30 or 40 years that might change.

  She laughs. “Probably.”

  Well, that particular family is one that has been reconnecting with for a group of shows this summer after a hiatus which followed the promotional cycle of 2014’s studio release 747 and fall tour last year.

  During that time, Scott says that the three “lived a lot of life,” which included Kelley recording a solo album The Driver, which was released earlier this year, and Haywood spending time with his own family, including a new baby boy.

  Scott’s time away, was a somewhat tragic mix of the two.

  The plan was for her to record with her blood family, an album of faith-based songs that had been important in their lives, be they traditional or contemporary tunes.

  And then, well, that plan changed dramatically when she suffered a miscarriage, which devastated her, had her questioning her beliefs and inspired her to write the song "Thy Will," which would become the centrepiece for Love Remains.
 "Thy Will" reached #1 on Billboard's Contemporary Christian music charts. The followup single, "Still," has also made the charts.

  “When I started dealing with a lot and feeling like I had something to say, that song just truly poured out,” she says of the moving, quite beautiful ballad that encapsulates the doubt she was feeling.

  “I think that there are a lot of people who have been through something in their own life that has made them feel this way and made them ask these same questions.

  “It was just this deep sense of there are people, whether it’s one or a million, that needs to hear this message and this song, and feel like they aren’t alone in their emotions and in their questions and, sometimes just anger at things that happen in your life …

  “So it just became a bigger mission.”

  That mission, though, was something she chose to be vague about when the song was released this past April as a single, noting only that it was inspired by a personal heartbreaking experience. Scott wanted people to hear it first without imposing her story on it, wanted to wait and let people connect with it in their own way, before finally revealing what that heartbreak specifically was — something she thought was as important as the song, itself.

  “It’s a tragedy. It’s grief, it’s pain, it’s going through a loss and, as women, a lot of times we’re like, ‘Well, we’ll just internalize it, we can handle it, we can move on,’ and they just live with this silent grief,” she says, explaining how common an experience it is.

  “I had to quash that because I think there’s such importance in naming something that is going to change you, that has changed you, that there’s no way it wouldn’t change you, and I think there’s so much power in actually saying that out loud and that other people need to feel like they can too.

  “So that was really the heart of it. It wasn’t me wanting to shake my fingers at people who don’t know how to walk through a hard time with someone they love. It’s more just giving the woman who’s gone through it, and the spouse because there’s grief there for them, permission to feel like they have a voice.”

  Already she says the support she’s received for the song has been amazing, and feedback from the fans has been “overwhelming.”

  “It’s just been very emotional. But I feel closer to the fans that I’ve been able to make as a part of Lady A, I’m making new ones, which is awesome, and I’m just so much more tied to them in a very heart-led way,” she says.

  “And there’s a healing that comes in that, there’s so much power when human beings unite together to get through something difficult, whatever it may be, in all of our own individual lives. It’s just been life-changing, it really has.”

  Scott hopes that fans connect with the rest of Love Remains in a similar way. The rest of the 13-song collection features a couple more originals, as well as other gospel, contemporary Christian and faith-based country and bluegrass songs the Scott family had bonded with over the years.

  Helping bring it all together and have it make sense was country music legend Ricky Skaggs, whom Scott gives a great deal of the credit to.

  “He nailed this record. And he poured his whole heart and soul into it. Just being able to be around him, his creative musical genius, but also just his heart and the person he is, I feel like he’s now a part of our family …,” she says, returning to the theme.

  “It was just an emotional experience, the whole thing, and it’s because these songs are just, our hearts are wrapped up in them … And it was just such a precious time. I truly feel like his studio and our time together, his studio became a sanctuary, a safe haven, a place where we cried and laughed and worshipped and grew and were challenged. It was just amazing.”

  Unfortunately, plans to take that amazing experience on the road for a full Scott Family run of dates are on hold and could prove to be difficult due to logistics. Scott notes that right now, her mom is actually out on Kenny Rogers’ extensive farewell tour, but “nothing would make us happier to be able to tour together and bring these songs to life.”

  For her part, she’s already back in the Lady A family fold, which she laughingly describes as being “like a nice cosy blanket.”

  Not only are they hitting the road for those aforementioned summer dates, but they’ve already spent some time in the studio working with their go-to producer Paul Worley, have been working on new material and are merely just enjoying being in each other’s company again.

  “We’re just having some fun,” she says. “We found and (have) written some songs that we’re excited about. We’ve got a long way to go, and no deadlines, no time frame. I think the fall, for sure, is set aside for us to work on the record and write and continue to hone in on what we want to say next.

  “But it’s definitely coming together and we’re having a blast.”

Hillary Scott has turned sadness into joy with Love Remains, the faith-based album from the Lady Antebellum frontwoman and her family. The groundwork actually started in 2011, with the passing of Hillary Scott’s grandfather. The musical family leaned on traditional hymns to comfort each other, recording a few, originally, just intended for family and friends. Ultimately the idea snowballed to create an album, which was produced by Ricky Skaggs, who also provided vocals, instrumentals, and according to Hillary Scott, “ongoing mentoring and pastoring.” Includes the #1 hit, "Thy Will"
