Hillary Scott Working on Family Gospel Project
Scott shared a photo of herself in the studio to Instagram recently, with the caption, "Today was a special day in the studio...can't wait to share it with y'all!! Soon enough I promise! =)."
On Friday (Nov. 20), Scott's mother, singer Linda Davis, told Nashville's The Tennessean newspaper that Scott is currently working on a gospel project with her mother, father and younger sister. Davis has had her own successful country career, topped off with Grammy and CMA Award wins for "Does He Love You," her duet with Reba McEntire.
“As parents, it’s so fun to be able to be involved in a project with both of our children,” she says. “It’s a dream we didn’t even know to dream about that’s fallen into place.”
“He was about family harmonies and his family wanted us to be a part of that,” Davis shares. “Ever since Hillary was a little girl, [family harmony] is all she’s known as well as Rylee Jean, our youngest daughter.”
The album will include gospel standards, as well as new songs the family have written.
“It’s sort of a nice combination of past, current and maybe what will last long after we’re gone,” Davis says, adding, “That’s our hope.”
There is no title or projected release date for the album yet, though Davis tells The Tennessean that it should be available early next year.
Scott's Lady Antebellum bandmate, Charles Kelley, recently released his debut solo single, "The Driver," which is the first single from an upcoming EP. He will embark on a solo tour on Nov. 28, with the EP to follow in early 2016.
