Hillary Scott & the Scott Family’s ‘Thy Will’ Wins at 2017 Grammy Awards
Hillary Scott & the Scott Family made the 2017 Grammy Awards a family affair -- and a memorable one at that. Their meaningful song "Thy Will" won Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance / Song during the Premiere Ceremony.
"Thy Will" is from Love Remains, which Scott; her mother, Linda Davis; her dad, Lang Scott; and her younger sister, Rylee, put together as a way to grieve the loss of Lang's father. Emily Wiseband and Bernie Herms penned "Thy Will" with Hillary Scott, and they took the stage with her in acceptance of the award.
"Thank you Lord, from whom all blessings flow," said Scott, overcome with emotion; she also thanked God and her husband, co-writers and family -- and added that she knows she missed others. "I'll hug you and send a thank-you note," she joked.
"God is good. He is a good God," Herms added. "The best moments, they don't come from us -- they come through us ..."
Wiseband, battling a cold, let her co-writers talk throughout the acceptance moment, but the emotion on all of their faces spoke volumes.
The Scott family was surprised at the response fans had to their raw, inspirational Love Remains album, produced by produced by Ricky Skaggs.
“I never expected it, because, honestly, when we set out to make the record, we weren’t sure how many people would hear it,” Scott recently told The Boot. “To be able to share it with my family is — it makes me cry.”
“The first time I heard [their single] “Thy Will,” it blew my mind. I asked her if she could hold it for a Lady Antebellum record,” Kelley says. “I knew it was special. I told her after I heard it, ‘This is going to blow up. This is going to be huge.’”
