Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott is stepping out with a new faith-based project with her family, and “Thy Will” is the stunning first song from that album.
Though she’s keeping the exact details of what led her to write and record the song, Hillary hopes it offers you a reminder that God is there through every moment of our lives.
Hillary knows that because she recently went through a tough time that inspired the song. She’ll reveal what she went through at some point, but right now she wants people to hear the song through their own stories.
“I’ve gained so much healing from what I’ve been through,” Hillary says of writing and recording “Thy Will” during an interview with Michigan radio station WIN 98.5. “I’m hearing so many stories just about what other people have been through, and that’s what I don’t want to miss. I feel like I’m not supposed to share my part yet until others have been given the opportunity to put their own lives into the words.”

Faith has always been a constant in Hillary’s life.
“I’ve always known and prayed and trusted that no matter what there’s someone looking out for me who can see me, who hears me in the darkest and brightest moments in life,” she says. “Not only is he there, but he places people in your life to see you and to hear you.”
The song also serves as a reminder it’s OK to ask God questions when we’re facing devastating losses and hard times.
Says Hillary, “It’s OK to ask why and to be upset and to question. That’s a natural thing that we are given the right to do is to go, ‘OK, this is really hard. I’m not going to act like it’s not.’ In the middle of great things, terrible things can happen. It’s a way to not lose your ground, and that’s what this song is for me. That’s what my faith is for me. This is how I stay steady.”
Hillary recently performed “Thy Will” at the Gospel Music Association Honors 2016 event in Nashville. Look for Hillary’s full faith-based album to be released soon.
