Early Friday morning (April 22nd), Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott sent out a letter to her fans via social media introducing her latest musical endeavor and describing the story behind her amazing first single, “Thy Will.” It’s the debut from the upcoming album, Love Remains, by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family, and it is being sent to both country and Christian radio.
“I’m so excited the day is finally here that I get to share with you all what I’ve been up to,” says Scott. “I have made a faith-based album entitled Love Remains. The best part about this collection of songs is that it is featuring my mom Linda Davis, my father Lang Scott and my little sister Rylee Scott, all produced by Ricky Skaggs. So ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce to you Hillary Scott & The Scott Family.”
“I wanted to first share ‘Thy Will.’ I wrote this song about a very recent experience that left me heart broken, asking why, and facing some of my most difficult days. This song is my letter to God. As I ask some really hard questions, I hold much of the story of my life that I can’t see, but that I still choose to trust Him.”
No release date has been set for the project — her first solo effort outside of Lady Antebellum — but Scott confirms that she and her family will share the stories and experiences that have inspired each song on the album.
