Today our focus falls on an artist, born into country music, who is currently the co-lead singer of the biggest trio currently in country music. And unlike her partner in that group, when she decided to do a side project, instead of going solo, she went back to a group she has been with her whole life.

Hillary Scott is best know as one-third of the mega-trio Lady Antebellum. Since their formation in 2006, and subsequent signing with Capitol Records Nashville in 2007, Scoot and bandmates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood have released 7 studio albums (including 1 holiday album), all of which have attained minimum gold certification for sales of 500,000 albums. The six studio albums have spawned 17 singles, 14 of which have made the top-10, and 9 have climbed all the way to #1. In November, they announced they were taking a short break for family and to work on side projects, though the trio did reunite recently to sing the National Anethem at the Kentucky Derby.

Unlike bandmate Charles Kelley, who recently released his first solo project, The Driver, Hillary Scott has returned to her roots, rejoining a group she has been a part of all her life...her family. For her side project, Hillary brought together her mother, Grammy Award winning singer Linda Davis, her father, songwriter Lang Scott and younger sister Rylee Scott for a gospel album entitled Love Remains. Hillary describes the album as the songs she sang in church, or on the back porch as a kid, songs she sang to her baby as she rocked her to sleep, or songs sang to a love one in their final moments. The Scott family gathered songs that are both traditional and modern gospel for the project, scheduled for release later this year.

The first single from the project is in our spotlight today; Hillary Scott & the Scott Family with "Thy Will" is today's Catch of the Day, new music you haven't heard, but you'll want to hear it again.
