Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley Breaks Out With Solo Album
Huffington Post - about 1 year
No, Lady Antebellum isn't breaking up, but one of the group's members is branching out. Charles Kelley, who has been a part of the country music trio for 10 years, is gearing up to release his first-ever solo album, "The Driver," on Feb. 5. As a plus, the title song off the record has already earned him a Grammy nomination. "That was a really big boost of confidence," Kelley told The Huffington Post of the Best Country Duo/Group Performance nod. "Starting out with this process, we always knew it was going to be interesting to see how many fans would connect the dots between Charles Kelley and 'That guy from Lady Antebellum.' I am starting over, and there's something that's humbling and exciting about it." Although "The Driver" isn't the "obvious, straight-out-the-gate, radio-friendly song," according to Kelley, the singer says it means a lot more to him than just any other tune, especially now that it's been recognized. "I feel kind of validated," he said. "To put that so ...

'America Is A Bizarre Place And Willie Is Our Captain'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- America loves its outlaws, and few are as admired and lionized as Willie Nelson. As the enduring American icon's 80th birthday has approached, he's been honored with lifetime achievement awards, serenaded at special performances and saluted by musicians from every genre of music. And Nelson has taken it all in with a bemused smile. "It's a nice thing to do for someone on their birthday and I appreciate it," Nelson said in a recent interview aboard his bus. "Usually I like to forget my birthdays as much as possible." The hubbub is as much about celebrating Nelson as it has been celebrating with Nelson. The singer whose birthday is Monday or Tuesday – Nelson says April 29, the state of Texas claims April 30 – occupies a unique space in America's cultural memory. A walking bag of contradictions, he wears his hair long in braids and has a penchant for pot smoking, yet remains arguably conservative country music's greatest songwriter. He's acc ...

"Out of Goodbyes" was included on Maroon 5's 2010 album, Hands All Over, but was never released as a single.
    More Details Hide Details In addition, Scott has co-written songs for other country artists, including Sara Evans' "A Little Bit Stronger" and Blake Shelton's "Suffocating". "A Little Bit Stronger" featured Scott on harmony vocals and was released in September 2010 as the lead off single to Evans' sixth studio album, Stronger. The song was widely used in the 2010 film, Country Strong, and topped the Hot Country Songs chart in May 2011 for two weeks, becoming Scott's first-ever Number One hit recorded by another artist. "Suffocating" was written by Scott with Shelton's ex-wife, Miranda Lambert, and recorded by Shelton for his 2010 EP, All About Tonight. Scott appeared on season 4 of The Voice as a mentor for "Team Adam".

    Age 24
    In August 2009, Lady Antebellum released "Need You Now" as the title track of its sophomore album.

Need You Now was released on January 26, 2010, and debuted at No. 1 on Billboards Top 200 Albums chart with first-week sales of almost 481,000 copies.
    More Details Hide Details The album consisted of eleven songs, eight of which were co-written by the members of the trio, and showcased production by both the trio and Worley. The next two singles from the album, "American Honey" and "Our Kind of Love", reached No. 1 on the country charts in April 2010 and September 2010, respectively. The album was certified triple platinum by the RIAA in October 2010. Its fourth and final single, "Hello World", peaked at No. 6 on the country charts in April 2011.
  • 2006
    Age 21
    Scott formed the country music group Lady Antebellum in 2006 with co lead singer Charles Kelley and back up singer Dave Haywood. They released their debut single, "Love Don't Live Here", on October 2, 2007; it entered Billboards Hot Country Songs chart that year, peaking at No. 3 in early 2008. Their self-titled debut album was released on April 15, 2008, and debuted at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart.
    More Details Hide Details It consisted of eleven songs, ten of which were either written or co-written by the members of the trio, and was produced by Paul Worley and Victoria Shaw. The trio released their second single, "Lookin' for a Good Time", in mid-2008; it peaked at No. 11 in December of that year. Their third single, "I Run to You", became their first Number One hit on the Hot Country Songs chart in July 2009. The album was certified platinum by the RIAA three months later, in October 2009.
    Then she met future bandmates Charles Kelley and later, Dave Haywood, in May 2006.
    More Details Hide Details She ran into Kelley at a Nashville bar and recognized him from his MySpace page, where she had been listening to his music. She introduced herself to Kelley and complimented him on his music, which led to his deciding that they should get together with Haywood and write songs. The first song they wrote was "All We'd Ever Need". The song was originally written for her to perform; she convinced Kelley it should be a duet, which led to the forming of Lady Antebellum. The group first performed together in August 2006 and signed a record deal in 2007. Scott claims that being lead singer of Lady Antebellum, as opposed to being a solo artist, lessens the pressure on her on stage.

    Scott was born in Nashville, Tennessee, to country music artist Linda Davis and Lang Scott, a musician and entrepreneur. Hillary was homeschooled on the road for kindergarten. She attended elementary school and high school at Donelson Christian Academy where she graduated in 2004.

After joining her mom on stage for a Christmas show, she was convinced to pursue a music career. She has one younger sister, Rylee, and her family is Scottish-Native American. After high school she attended Middle Tennessee State University to help her music career grow and to also improve it.
