Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott was dealing with a personal tragedy the day she wrote her current solo single, “Thy Will.” Today (June 20), the singer spoke about the tragedy on Good Morning America as she revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage last fall.
In May, Nash Country Daily talked to Hillary about her single and she was not ready to reveal her personal story at that time. She did tell us that writing the song “Thy Will” was like therapy for her. “A lot of writing sessions are pretty much like free therapy. You go in and you kind of spill your guts to people you don’t really know that well a lot of the time, and this was one of those days. I was in the middle of going through something really, really hard and was not in any way shape or form expecting to share all of that because it’s a lot for anybody to hear, but for some reason, I don’t know, the energy in the room shifted and I felt very comfortable to tell them [songwriters Bernie Herms and Emily Weisband] what was going on, and that’s what the song is about.”
“I wrote this song in the middle of experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage,” she told Good Morning America. “So it was my most raw place that I could have been when this song truly poured out of me.”
