10 Things You Didn’t Know About Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott
8. Growing Up in a Musical Family
Growing up in a musical family, Hillary Scott was exposed to life on the road at an early age. Her mother, Linda Davis was a backup singer for Reba McEntire and her father, Lang Scott, was also in her band, so she was homeschooled on the road when she was in kindergarten. While in elementary and high school she lived with her grandparents so her parents could continue on tour. At the age of 14 Scott decided she wanted to follow in her parents footsteps after she joined her mother onstage for a Christmas show. Fun fact: Hillary Scott’s mother had the honor of joining Reba on stage during the 1993 CMA Awards to sing the song “Does He Love You.” Despite her label wanting someone more established like Wynonna Judd to sing the song with her, McEntire was adamant it be Davis. The song ended up in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country charts and won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Collaboration.
7. First Onstage Memory
It should come as no surprise that Hillary Scott’s first memory onstage is with her mother, fellow singer Linda Davis. In an interview with Rolling Stone, she opened up about what that was like and said: “The first memory I have of being onstage with [my mom] is singing ‘Amazing Grace’ at a show. Gospel music was in our house all the time.” Later in life the two recorded a gospel album, Love Remains, alongside her father and little sister, Rylee.
