Hillary Scott Reiterates Her Faith on Bus Fire Anniversary
On April 16, 2015, Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott faced a frightening experience when her bus caught on fire. Now, on the two-year anniversary, she's reminiscing on that day and re-sharing the incredible recovery.
In an Instagram post on Sunday (April 16), Scott re-shared a message highlighting a special item that made it through the fire. The 2015 event left the back of the singer's tour bus in a blaze and all her personal items destroyed — except for a very important one.
"I kid you not, EVERYTHING in the back lounge was destroyed from the flames, except my Bible," Scott explains in the original post. "The outside cover was burned and messed up but NOT ONE PAGE was missing. Y'all, God's Word will always stand. He is FOR YOU, WILL PROTECT YOU, AND HIS LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER FADE. My faith is forever deepened because of today. I hope this story deepens yours."
The damaging fire was caused by heat generated from a rear tire as Scott and crew were driving through Dallas early in the morning on the way to the ACM Awards. The fire took over the back of the bus where Scott was sleeping, but she woke up and made it off the bus safely, along with the driver, her husband and tour manager. They were the only ones on the bus.
Scott recently reunited with her Lady Antebellum bandmates after working on a gospel album with her family in 2016. The trio released their latest single "You Look Good" in January of 2017 and are gearing up to release their new album Heart Break on June 9. The album will be accompanied by the massive 2017 You Look Good World Tour that takes Lady A across the U.S., Europe and South Africa.
