When Hillary Scott announced her new single “Thy Will” she admitted that there was a personal struggle that had inspired the song. The Lady Antebellum member declined to comment on what that incident was as she didn’t want it to affect the way people heard the song that she recorded with her parents and sister. Now she’s revealed what inspired the song.
“Last fall, I went through a miscarriage,” she told ABC’s Good Morning America, adding she wrote the song while “experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage. So it was my most raw place that I could’ve ever been when this song truly poured out of me.”
“I also feel like there’s this pressure that you’re just supposed to be able to snap your fingers and continue to walk through life like it never happened,” she added.
Hillary says the miscarriage has also changed her relationship with her two-year-old Eisele Kaye.
“I’m a different mom to her now … I hug her a lot tighter,” she said.
“Thy Will” appears on the album Love Remains by Hillary Scott & the Scott Family, which will be released on July 29.
“After going through everything that I’ve gone through in the past year, but also just the process of making this record, I know I’m coming back into the mindset of Lady Antebellum … I’m very grateful,” she said.
