Hillary Scott Reveals Release Date for Gospel Album, ‘Love Remains’
Fans have heard about the inspiration behind Hillary Scott's upcoming gospel record, titled Love Remains, and now they can mark their calendars to finally hear the music that goes with it.
The album, which was not only recorded by the Lady Antebellum singer but also her family members, is officially slated for release July 29, 2016.
Having gone through a trying time after the death of Scott’s grandfather in 2011, the musical family wanted to process the experience and express their thankfulness toward family and friends who supported them during the hardship. What started as a five-song project of favorite hymns to give to family and friends became a 13-track record, including not only hymns, but also newly-written originals and songs made popular by other artists.
"The process of making this album has been not only creatively inspiring but I’ve also really been able to grow as a person," Scott shares in a news release. "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."
Scott’s father, Lang Scott, mother, Linda Davis, and younger sister, Rylee, appear on the Ricky Skaggs-produced record together. Scott also shared on Good Morning America that the album’s lead single, “Thy Will,” came from a very dark period in her life in which she suffered a miscarriage during her second pregnancy in the fall of 2015.
Love Remains appears after Lady Antebellum’s recent touring break, during which fellow member Charles Kelley also released a solo record. The band are now reunited, and hitting the road again for a summer tour.
