Charles Kelley isn’t the only member of Lady Antebellum who will be making music while the trio takes a break. Hillary Scott will be recording a gospel album with her family. According to Rollingstone Hillary will be joined by her parents, the legendary Linda Davis and stepfather Lang Scott, along with sister Rylee Jean Scott, will be out in early 2016.
The album is bound to be good with Ricky Skaggs at the producing wheel.
“He was about family harmonies and his family wanted us to be a part of that,” Davis told the Tennessean, adding, “Ever since Hillary was a little girl, [family harmony] is all she’s known as well as Rylee Jean.”
Lady Antebellum’s leading lady, Hillary Scott, has been tapped to host Leadership Music’s Dale Franklin Awards honoring Jo Walker-Meador, Steve Buchanan and Reba McEntire on Monday, November 16, 2015. Leadership Music will honor the three music industry luminaries at a gala cocktail reception, awards presentation and musical tribute beginning at 5:30 pm at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater. Big Machine Label Group is the title sponsor for the 2015 event. CMA’s legendary long-time Executive Director, Jo Walker-Meador, will receive a new award named for Leadership Music’s Founding Council; Steve Buchanan has been chosen as the recipient of the Brian Williams Ambassador Award, and Reba McEntire, award-winning musical artist, television personality and Broadway star will be honored with Leadership Music’s prestigious Dale Franklin Award.
“It’s always special to help recognize passionate people in our industry,” said 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!”
