Scott announces solo disc

Friday, April 22, 2016 – Hillary Scott will become the second member of Lady Antebellum to go the solo route.

Scott, one-third of the band, announced today via Instagram that she was going to release "Love Remains," a faith-based album" under the moniker Hillary Scott & the Scott Family.

"It's a collection of songs that I have co-written, found and have grown up singing in church. The best part about this collection of songs is that it is featuring my mom Linda Davis, my father Lang Scott and my littler sister Rylee Scott," Scott wrote.

Ricky Skaggs produced the disc. Scott did not say when the disc would be out. The music is being put out by HST Entertainment under exclusive license to EMI Nashville.

Band mate Charles Kelley released a solo disc earlier this year and has been touring behind it.

Scott said she was "so excited the day is finally here that I get to share with you all that I've been up to. Keeping all this excitement under wraps has been such a challenge."

Scott said she made a faith-based disc because she wanted "to share more of who I am. These songs and many like them are the cry of my heart. I have been singing songs like this my whole life whether it be in church, with family and friends gathered around with guitars on my screened in porch, rocking my baby girl to sleep or while holding the hand of a dying love one. Songs rooted in my faith have gotten me through and continue to bring me through the best and worst times of my life. They make me feel peace when I'm anxious, strength when I doubt and give me the courage to keep going on the days that I don't think I can go another step."

The single "What If I Never Get Over You," poses a rarely asked pop song question. Humans have come to believe the cliché, 'Time heals all wounds,' as if it were some sort of scientific fact. But what if it's just that, a well-worn cliché, with no actual »»»
Heart Break CD review - Heart Break
Lady Antebellum may cause you to throw out many of your country music principles. They don't sing and play traditional country music, for starters. They're not cool like more rocking Americana artists. In fact, they're huge mainstream country stars. So, why are some of us still suckers for their sound? And why does the new "Heart Break" sound so good on the ears? Well, it's simple, but complicated. Hillary Scott is simply a wonderfully sincere singer. »»»

Six albums into its career, Lady Antebellum pretty much has the formula down pat. Either Hillary Scott or long and lanky Charles Kelley assumes lead vocals with Dave Haywood also providing vocals plus guitars and mandolin in a bunch of songs easy on the ears with a story often involving a lust for love. The typical song ("Lie With Me," for example) starts with Kelly or Scott taking a stanza, followed by the other with both then tackling the chorus together. This has worked quite well »»»
