Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott to Release Family Gospel Album

Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott is venturing out in the music world and working on a gospel album, and it’s going to be a family affair.

The Tennessean just revealed that the “Need You Now” singer is teaming up with her parents, Linda Davis and Lang Scott, as well as her younger sister Rylee Jean Scott, to produce an album of both new and classic gospel songs.

“It’s sort of a nice combination of past, current and maybe what will last long after we’re gone,” Davis told the site of the upcoming release expected to hit shelves next year, revealing that the musical collection is actually being produced by 14 time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs.

“As parents, it’s so fun to be able to be involved in a project with both of our children,” Davis told The Tennessean of the new project, “It’s a dream we didn’t even know to dream about that’s fallen into place.”

Davis also revealed that the gospel album actually came about as a result of the Scott family performing together at the funeral of Jim Ed Brown in June of this year.

“He was about family harmonies and his family wanted us to be a part of that,” Davis told The Tennessean of the Grand Ole Opry legend. “Ever since Hillary was a little girl, [family harmony] is all she’s known as well as Rylee Jean, our youngest daughter.”

Though Scott is arguably the most recognizable member of the talented family following her enormous success as one-third of Lady Antebellum, her parents are certainly no strangers to the spotlight either.

Scott’s mom most notably teamed up with Reba McEntire back in 1993 on the No. 1 Billboard Hot Country Songs hit “Does He Love You”, and has actually released 8 albums since over the past 14 years. As for Scott’s dad, he’s a songwriter who met Davis whilst he was a member of McEntire’s band.
