Hillary Scott Hosting 2015 Dale Franklin Awards
Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott has been selected for the honor of hosting the Dale Franklin Awards, put on by Leadership Music, a nonprofit in Nashville focusing on fostering leadership qualities and collaboration among music industry leaders in the community. The ceremony will be honoring three award recipients, including Reba McEntire, who will receive the Dale Franklin Award for her leadership in the music industry.
The ceremony will take place Nov. 16 at the Country Music Hall of Fame and will also recognize Jo Walker-Meador with the Founding Council Award and Steve Buchanan with the Brian Williams Ambassador Award.
"It's always special to help recognize passionate people in our industry," says Scott. "All three of these honorees have personally made amazing contributions not only in Nashville but have been part of sharing country music across the globe. I'm thrilled to have been asked to host and look forward to celebrating in a few weeks."
Lady A have been busy this year with their sold-out Wheels Up Tour with Sam Hunt and Hunter Hayes, which wrapped up in September. Now, the trio are taking a breather, which is probably a good thing, as Scott and bandmate Dave Haywood already have little ones and Charles Kelley has one on the way. But Kelley certainly isn’t putting his feet up — he’s working on a six-song solo EP, set to debut in early 2016.
Scott recently took some time to stop by gal pal Kelsea Ballerini's housewarming party along with fellow superstar Taylor Swift, but otherwise has been keeping it low-key since coming off the road. However, as she teased on Instagram, she too has apparently been in the studio!
