Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum and drummer Chris Tyrrell have just commended eight years of marriage. To this day, their relationship remains strong.
Scott and Tyrrell met while on a Tim McGraw tour in 2010, as reported by Wide Open Country. In an interview, Scott said she was promptly attracted to Tyrrell.
For her, Tyrrell was handsome and that she could tell he was a nice guy. When she met him, the singer admitted that she wants to date him.
A proposal soon followed. "Chris proposed exactly the way I've always dreamed," Scott told PEOPLE at the time. "Our families were close by, but it was just us out on a beautiful deck overlooking a lake in East Tennessee."
"We had just been on a hike and – in our workout clothes – he hit the knee!" she added. "We feel so blessed by God that He sent us each other, and we are looking so forward to forever together!"
On January 7, 2012, the couple tied the knot at the historic Appel Inn in upstate New York. Family and dear companions surrounded them, Wide Open Country reported.
ANXIOUS TO TIE THE KNOT
Scott and Tyrrell were anxious to get married. They decided to move their date up significantly, so bandmates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood couldn't make it because of previously committed vacations.
They, however, sent some champagne flutes and a bottle of Dom Pérignon that the newlywed enjoyed after their wedding ceremony.
In January 2018, the couple received a great blessing.
In 2013, Scott and Tyrrell welcomed their first child, Eisele Kaye Tyrrell. Unfortunately, in 2015, Scott had a miscarriage.
In an interview, Scott described the experience as incredibly depressing. But the experience also provided her another point of view on being a mother.
As reported by ABC News, Scott said she feels like there's this pressure that you're simply expected to have the option to snap your fingers and keep on walking through life like it never occurred.
In January 2018, the couple received great blessings, Wide Open Country reported. They welcomed twin daughters, Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn.
Recently, Scott talked about Kenny Rogers, who passed away on March 20, 2020, in Georgia at age 81. Her mother toured with the legendary singer as a backup singer and later opened for him with her own band.
According to Scott, Rogers "was an incredible gift to the world through his decades-long career." She added that their family became more acquainted with the artist's "generosity," "kindness," and "brilliance first-hand."
