Originally, Hillary Scott was just going to lend her voice to a project her father had thought of after the singer’s grandfather died of Leukemia. That idea — first introduced one year ago — blossomed into Love Remains, a Christian and country album that includes Scott’s “Thy Will.”
Hillary Scott & the Scott Family’s album will be available later this year and will boast a duet with Scott and mother Linda Davis that features a number of other artists. The Lady Antebellum frontwoman also sings with a still-unnamed contemporary Christian artist. “Thy Will” is Scott’s story, written about a personal tragedy suffered within the last year. But the album is truly a family project.
Scott recently recalled her father, Lang Scott, coming to her with the idea of putting a collection of hymns together to give to everyone who supported the family during her grandfather’s cancer battle, which ended in November 2011. A long vacation and some reflection led to a conversation with her Lady A bandmates before a 2015 tour stop in Detroit. All agreed a break would do them good.
