Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott on groupies, corndogs and pajama parties with Miranda Lambert
Singer Hillary Scott has spent the past year or so on the road. In a bus. With 10 dudes. They don’t give her much privacy and frequently forget proper unisex bathroom etiquette.
On the plus side, Scott’s band, Lady Antebellum, which includes co-lead singer Charles Kelley and multi-instrumentalist Dave Haywood, happens to be the year’s hottest new act to emerge from Nashville. The band’s self-titled debut album, which features mostly self-written material, reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and topped the country chart . The disc features the hit singles I Run To You, Love Don’t Live Here and Lookin’ for a Good Time.
Lady Antebellum tours this summer with country megastar Kenny Chesney and the majestically tough, smart (and sexy) Miranda Lambert. All three acts will share the stage Saturday at the Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa.
Wade Tatangelo caught up with Scott by phone recently while Lady Antebellum was in California to play a county fair in between 20,000-capacity dates with Chesney. The 25-year-old beauty with the singing and songwriting chops spoke in an utterly charming Southern accent about corndogs with ketchup, male groupies and “sleepovers” with Miranda Lambert.
Scott giggled and laughed a lot. She has an adorable laugh.
