Love Remains is the second studio album by American singer and songwriter Hillary Scott, a founding member of American country music trio Lady Antebellum, released in collaboration with her father, Lang Scott; her mother, Linda Davis; and her sister Rylee Scott (credited collectively as 'The Scott Family').[2] It was released on July 29, 2016 by EMI Nashville and Capitol Nashville. The faith-based record incorporates elements of gospel, bluegrass, country, and pop genres and is produced by Ricky Skaggs.[1]

Upon release, Love Remains achieved moderate commercial success, including a top-10 debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.[3] It additionally bowed atop the Billboard Christian Albums chart and at number 2 on the Country Albums chart. The record's lead single, "Thy Will", was released in April 2016 and reached the top of the Hot Christian Songs chart that summer.[2][4]

Love Remains won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and "Thy Will" won for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.[5]

Background and recording

In 2011, following the passing of Hillary Scott's grandfather, W.M. Scott Jr., the Scott family leaned on their faith and used traditional hymns to comfort one another.[6] They began recording the songs with the intention of sharing those messages of joy with friends and family.[7] This project eventually developed into a full-length album which includes classic hymns, popular Contemporary Christian songs, and newly-written original tracks such as the project's lead single, "Thy Will".[8] This song was inspired by a miscarriage Scott experienced in 2015 while on tour.[6] The family reached out to Ricky Skaggs to produce the album and Skaggs additionally provided instrumentation and guest vocals.[6][8] Christian musicians Steven Curtis Chapman and Cheryl White also make appearances.

Singles

"Thy Will", one of three tracks co-written by Scott, was released to digital retailers, country radio, and Christian radio on April 22, 2016 as the album's lead single.[2][8] Its music video premiered June 20, 2016.[9] The song has since reached 27 on the Hot Country Songs chart and number one on the Hot Christian Songs chart.[4][10]

Other songs

"Beautiful Messes", "Love Remains", and "Still" all debuted on the Hot Christian Songs chart following the album's release at 28, 38, and 50, respectively.[11]

Commercial performance

Love Remains debuted at number 7 on the Billboard 200 with 28,000 units sold in its first week.[3] It was the fourth best-selling album of the week.[12] The album also debuted at numbers one and 2 on the Top Christian Albums and Top Country Albums charts, respectively. The album has sold 104,700 copies in the United States as of December 2016.[13]

Internationally, the album debuted at number 69 in Canada and at number 81 in Australia.
