The three members of the country group Lady Antebellum decided to take a few months off to do some solo projects and to spend some quality time with their families as well. Hillary Scott has done just that, but her solo project was so much more than simply going off to do something else outside of the band. She needed time to heal from a personal tragedy that she is just now ready to share with others.
Scott’s new single, “Thy Will,” is an emotional quest for the singer. She was unable to explain the pain that she was going through when she wrote that tune, but she is now ready to talk about it. Back in April, when the new song was revealed, she was not ready to explain what her painful lyrics were really all about. All she said was that she had gone through something very difficult in which she had to ask some hard questions of God, but she soon realized that she just had to trust Him. She said that the tune that she wrote was actually a letter to God.
The only female member of Lady Antebellum feels that now is the time to talk about what happened in her life. Hillary was seen on Good Morning America on Monday as she finally revealed the suffering that she experienced last fall was due to the miscarriage of her second pregnancy. She revealed how it has impacted her life and her faith. Even now she says that it is not talked about much at all.
The Lady Antebellum singer said that she wrote the song right in the middle of all that she was going through emotionally. The pain that she faced, even when no one knew exactly what they were at the time, has shown just how much she had struggled with her circumstances.
“I wrote, ‘Thy Will,’ in the midst of experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage. So it was my most raw place that I could’ve ever been when this song truly poured out of me.”
The single is off of her recent album, Love Remains, which has a release date of July 29. This project was done with the help of her family, dad Lang Scott, mom Linda Davis, and her sister, Rylee. It features inspirational music that has helped her to get through her personal struggles of the miscarriage and some other music that is sure to warm your heart.
While speaking about her losing her second child through a miscarriage, Scott did say that she feels like many people think that you should be able to go on like it never happened. However, writing music has been healing for her. It could even serve as a testimony for other women who may be going through the same struggle she has been through.
During her break from Lady Antebellum, Hillary Scott has also been enjoying spending some quality time with her 2-year-old daughter, Eisele. In fact, she mentioned that she has been hugging her firstborn even tighter these days.
She previously revealed to People that she was the reason that Lady Antebellum took some time off in the first place to do her family project. It has all worked out just fine with Charles Kelley, who did his own solo project, and also with Dave Haywood, who spent his own time with family and writing music.
Country fans have been wondering just when Hillary Scott would be getting back with her two Lady Antebellum guys. Their wait will soon be over as the trio is heading out on a summer tour soon. The 30-year-old mom seems to be getting back into her routine once again and is ready to bring the threesome’s music back on stage.
Many thought that they had broken up and would never get back together, but now that they are starting their tour this summer, it looks like all is well with them. It may just prove that a little time off will bring them back better than ever.
