On Monday, November 14th, Lady Antebellum played a special fan appreciation show for their fan club members at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Just before singing a gospel song, Hillary talked about how she wanted to dedicate the next song to her biggest fan, her grandfather. She got choked up when she said that he had passed away the Friday before and that he had told her that when she played the Ryman, her and the boys had to sing a gospel song. Watch the video after the jump. They did an amazing job and I bet that Hillary’s grandfather would’ve been proud. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Hillary and her family.
We had the chance to speak with Dave Barnes, a talented singer-songwriter who considers himself to be a songwriter first. His name has become popular with country music fans as the writer for Blake Shelton’s current single “God Gave Me You,” but he’s also friends with Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott.
We asked him his opinion on Blake’s version of his song, how he came up with “God Gave Me You,” his friendship with Hillary, and his involvement with the “Mocha Club.” See what the down-to-earth singer had to say by clicking the “read more” tag.
People.com has reported that Hillary Scott got engaged this 4th of July weekend to drummer Chris Tyrell. The two met in early 2010 on tour with Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum’s current hit “Just A Kiss” was inspired by Hillary and Chris’ relationship.
Chris proposed with family close by on a deck overlooking a lake in East Tennessee – just how Hillary had dreamed it would be. They were in their workout clothes when he got down on one knee – just after going on a hike.
No date has been set yet. Congratulations, Hillary and Chris!
