As a response to the death of her grandmother, Lady Antebellum lead singer Hillary Scott penned a touching piece whose message is to lean on your faith when life takes a sudden and tragic turn.
Here is the official music video of Hillary's "Thy Will".
Hillary talked to CCM Magazine about recording both the track, "Thy Will", and the album from where it came, Love Remains.
“The process of making this album has been not only creatively inspiring but I’ve also really been able to grow as a person,” shares Hillary Scott. “We’ve had this intense concentrated amount of time as a family together, which has been so special. With all that we’ve gone through together, the highs, the lows—to be able to process all of that together, to heal together, to grieve together, to laugh, to cry, all of those things…it’s just been such a continuation of solidifying the strong foundation that we have in our family.”
After the passing of her grandfather in 2011, Scott alongside mother Linda Davis, father Lang Scott and younger sister Rylee, leaned on their faith and music as a source of hope through the difficult time. The Scott family yearned to thank loved ones for their support and set out to record demos of family-favorite hymns. As the summer of 2015 wound down and Lady Antebellum soaked-in time off the road, the family’s plans for a 5-song CD as a gift to family and friends, blossomed into what is now Love Remains.
The 13-track collection of faith-based songs is a combination of hymns Scott grew up singing in church, newly-written originals and songs made popular by other artists. With the help of producer Ricky Skaggs, the forthcoming album blurs the lines between gospel, bluegrass, country and pop. At the center of the mix are the rich, entwined voices of the Scotts, who take turns harmonizing and singing lead.
“We didn’t want to make a sad record,” noted Lang Scott. “You’re always sad when you lose a loved one, but if you have that faith, it gives you hope. It gives you the courage to press on.”
