OFFSTAGE: Hillary Scott Hears Wedding Strings

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

There will be wedding bells, I’m sure. But now that Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott is getting down to planning the little details of her 2012 marriage to drummer Chris Tyrrell, she’s starting to think about the music at the ceremony. And maybe some wedding strings. “There will definitely be a live band at the reception, for sure. But then for the ceremony, I haven’t really decided yet,” she told CMT Radio. “I mean, I love strings, so maybe a string quartet? But then I’ll probably end up asking some friend that we have in the industry. I haven’t asked him yet, so I don’t want to say it out loud. But I have someone in mind that I love very much — and is dear to Chris — that I’m thinking about asking.” Could she be thinking about asking bandmates Charles Kelley or Dave Haywood to sing? Or labelmates Dierks Bentley or Keith Urban? Whoever Scott hires, I hope the wedding has a romantic, country sound.
