Hillary Scott & The Scott Family's "Thy Will" spends a second week at #1 on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs. Boosted by its sales performance of 9,000 downloads sold (up 12 percent), "Thy Will," which debuted on Christian Digital Songs at No. 2 (May 14, 11,000), reaches the 100,000 sales mark, as it rules Christian Digital Songs for its ninth frame.
With the success of "Thy Will," Scott and her family's single, on Christian radio, Hillary Scott is open to considering more faith-based songs for Lady Antebellum.
"There are a lot of people out there who are so lost in the hustle and bustle of their own lives that they just need to wake up. Myself included. Ourselves included," says Scott. "And so, we take it on a song-by-song basis. It's obviously a huge part of who I am, my faith, from a very, very early age, and so I gravitate towards songs like that, and so do the boys. Every song hits you differently, and that's where being in a group, we're always in a continual state of compromise and having honest conversations."
Scott, Kelley and Haywood will likely be having plenty of those honest conversations soon enough: Scott says they are beginning the process of creating their next album.
"We are in exploratory mode. We are having a blast," she reveals. "We're writing; the fall is really what's marked off for the bulk of the work, but we don't know how to not work, so we're writing. We've got a lot of dates on hold for writing appointments - all together, some separate.
"We're dabbling in the studio here and there, but nothing is really cemented in stone yet. We're kind of exploring, and that's what this whole experience was for: to give ourselves time to really go after our own individual things and then come back and have no real rush of a deadline for new music," Scott adds. "We've got some good stuff in the works. I'm excited. I'm very, very happy."
