Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott Starts MTSU Scholarship

Hillary Scott

Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott is giving back in a big way. The singer has started a scholarship for her Alma Mater, MTSU, giving women who want a creative career in the music industry a chance.

Her dad is a professional songwriter and one of his first cuts was on LeAnn Rimes’ first album,” the band’s manager Daniel Miller explained of why Scott funded the scholarship. “The income that her family earned from the sale of that song on that record allowed them to send her to MTSU.”

“Whether it be a songwriter, a producer, an engineer, whatever … hopefully this will allow several young women the opportunity to achieve their dreams indefinitely,” Miller said.
