Including special guest Ricky Skaggs
The forthcoming album's debut single, 'Thy Will,' lands atop Billboard's hot Christian songs chart this week ahead of July 29 release
Hillary Scott & The Scott Family gathered with over 200 of their closest friends and family last night at Nashville's The Bell Tower, as they introduced music from their upcoming album "Love Remains" (EMI Nashville, Capitol CMG), available July 29.
The intimate evening maximized the group's harmonies with newly written originals such as "Safe Haven" and "Beautiful Messes," while a surprise performance came from coveted producer Ricky Skaggs on a number of songs, including "We March On" and "Your Unfailing Love." Before the evening ended, Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott mesmerized the crowd with the record's sonically stunning first single "Thy Will," which earned the No. 1 spot this week on Billboard's hot Christian songs chart and is currently top 10 on the national Christian audience chart.
"Love Remains," a 13-track collection of faith-based songs, is a combination of hymns Hillary grew up singing in church, newly written originals and songs made popular by other artists. With the help of producer Skaggs, the forthcoming album blurs the lines between gospel, bluegrass, country and pop. At the center of the mix are the rich, entwined voices of the Scotts, who take turns harmonizing and singing lead.
These are songs that find the redemption in struggle, the peace in death, the joy in bonding with family members whenever times are tough. The stories behind the songs are personal; it's music with a message, and Hillary has rarely sounded more at home. "Love Remains" follows more than 11 million album sales worldwide for Hillary as one-third of the one of the world's most popular groups, Lady Antebellum. The trio has earned six platinum singles and was dubbed ACM and CMA "Vocal Group of the Year" three years in a row.
