As a member of country superstars Lady Antebellum, Hillary Scott has thus far scored seven GRAMMY Awards and sold over 11 million albums. However, this side step steers away from her regularly scheduled recordings to dive deeper than ever before into her faith and family foundation. Along with mother Linda Davis (a frequent Reba McEntire and Kenny Rogers collaborator), father Lang Scott and younger sister Rylee, the singer/songwriter splits this inspirational project between originals, contemporary covers and old time hymns, some of which were selected in response to her grandfather’s passing and Scott’s sudden miscarriage. In spite of that grief, there’s a tone of hope, healing and redemption, additionally enforced by everyone’s emotive delivery and tightly knit harmonies that can only be explained by blood. Beyond the family’s obvious vocal talents, the collection benefits from top-notch production by Ricky Skaggs, who helps intertwine a gospel, bluegrass, country and pop combination that’s nothing short of flawless.
