Hillary Scott's Crossover to Christian Music Rewarded with Grammy Noms

Hannah Goodwyn - Senior Producer

Country music fans know Hillary Scott from her role as one-third of the Grammy Award-winning group, Lady Antebellum.

But this past year, the songstress took a departure from her Country Music roots to record an album with her family for Christian music fans. Love Remains debuted in the top 10 over the summer on the Billboard 200 chart.

Now, her album and hit song, “Thy Will”, are Grammy nominated.

With two nods, Scott potentially can add another golden Grammy to her collection. She has seven Grammys for her work with Lady Antebellum.

Check out her song, “Thy Will”, nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song:
