Hillary Scott & the Scott Family Offer Hope with Love Remains

New Faith-Based Album Available Now

Five years ago, Hillary Scott & the Scott Family couldn’t have predicted the gift they would give the world when they started recording demos of their favorite hymns.

That project, which began as a thank you to loved ones for their support following the passing of Scott’s grandfather, became the family’s first Christian album, Love Remains.

Under the production of five-time CMA winner and bluegrass giant, Ricky Skaggs, the uplifting 13-song collection shows how faith and music can heal at a time when the world may need it most. The daily news headlines worldwide in the summer of 2016 have been heavy with social unrest and unthinkable tragedy. But it is Scott’s hope that fans find their own sense of peace while listening to the new music.

“I think as much as there’s music that’s created and performed to help people escape,” she says in our interview for CMT.com, “it’s important for there to be the other side of that, which are songs that help pull emotions out of you that you try to suppress because sometimes they’re just too hard to feel.”

“I think that’s one of the things that music is for — to uplift, encourage and to make people feel loved. That’s what I want this record to do. I want people who hear this record to know that they’re loved, that they’re not alone and that there’s hope. If you’re feeling afraid, or if you’re worried about tomorrow, put this record on and see if it can break through that fear and just walk into whatever is next with bravery, open arms and an open heart.”

Scott co-wrote three songs for Love Remains, including the powerful lead single “Thy Will” – the family’s first No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart. The soaring ballad was written in the wake her own personal tragedy following a miscarriage in 2015.

“Writing ‘Thy Will’ has been one of the most healing experiences of my life,” she says. “And that was through the craft of songwriting and sharing my heart about what was going on.”
