Hillary Scott Opens Up About Miscarriage: There's 'Pressure' to 'Walk Through Life Like It Never Happened'
The singer reveals suffering a miscarriage last fall inspired her new single "Thy Will"
“Last fall I went through a miscarriage,” Scott, 30, told Good Morning America through tears on Monday.
“This is something that is still not talked about very often,” says Scott, opening up for the first time about her experience. “I also feel like there’s this pressure that you’re just supposed to be able to snap your fingers and continue to walk through life like it never happened.”
But Scott, who recently recorded an album of hymns with her family, Love Remains, put pen to paper to help her persevere through her pain.
“I wrote this song in the middle of experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage, so it was at my most raw place that I could have ever been when this song truly poured out of me.”
The singer and mom to daughter Eisele Kaye, who turns 3 next month, is also approaching motherhood with a new outlook.
“I’m a different mom to her now,” she says of Eisele. “I hug her a lot tighter.”
Scott is also focusing on music and looking forward to being back with her Lady Antebellum bandmates.
“After going through everything that I’ve gone through in the past year, but also just the process of making this record, I know I’m coming back into the mindset of Lady Antebellum,” she says of the band, which is playing various festival and fair dates this summer.
“Thy Will” is the first single off Love Remains, which is out July 29.
