Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott has spoken of how the pain she experienced after a miscarriage shaped her new album "Love Remains."
When the country singer announced a hiatus last year, she thought that it would be a good opportunity to work on an album of hymns along with her talented family of musicians.
But instead, an unexpected miscarriage took her to the breaking point of her life.
Scott shared that the process she went through of opening up to have a conversation with God about her pain, resulted in her penning of hit single "Thy Will" which is the focal point of her latest album "Love Remains," releasing this Friday.
"I fully believe that God showed up that day and we were pass-throughs for a message that he knew and I quickly saw that a lot of people needed to hear," she said of the song she wrote with Bernie Herms and Emily Weisband.
"It is OK to question why things happen. We're supposed to — he expects that."
Scott, the mother of a three year old daughter said she didn't want to hide the truth about her miscarriage from her fans.
"It just felt like this silent struggle," she confessed. "I just had to go in with a hammer and bust that out because I knew that this was something that was going to be a part of me for the rest of my life."
The Singer said it's easy to get consumed by self- blame and doubts after a miscarriage, but she insists it is necessary to mourn that loss.
Her message has touched fans, as "Thy Will" has since topped Billboard's Christian digital songs charts.
This project initially started as covers of hymns, but the whole recording process blossomed when they started writing new songs. They asked their bluegrass musician Ricky Skaggs and close friend to produce the record.
"I really wanted to honor the contemporary sound they were going for on certain songs, so that was a learning curve for me, too," Skaggs said.
