Taking time away from the studio, Lady A’s Hillary Scott shares some details about her twin daughters, Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn, and their keen interest in music in her latest interview.

According to Good Morning America, Hillary Scott opens up to reporters about taking the adorable little girls to the studio and also how the three-year-olds are already showing music talents. “It’s so cool to see them hearing their own voice back, and just getting to be in the control room with me,” Scott explains.

Hillary Scott also says the reason, why it’s so amazing, is because, for the majority of their lives, the girls haven’t really been able to come to the studio with her. Also discussing the girls’ music talents, Hillary Scott reveals that the duo loves to sing. “I would have to say Betsy is a little bit more of a… if you ask her, it’s always a ‘yes.’ Like ‘Do you wanna sing a song?’ And she’s like, ‘Yeah, OK’ and she’ll just burst into singing.”

Hillary Scott also proclaims that Betsy’s favorite song is ‘This is Me’ from The Greatest Showman. “Anything with the oh-oh’s in it, it’s her favorite,” the Lady A singer adds. 

Hillary Scott married her husband Chris Tyrrell in January 2012. The couple reportedly met in college and reconnected with Lady A and Tyrrell’s former band Love and Theft performed as opening acts on Tim McGraw’s 2010 tour. Scott and Tyrrell announced they were expecting their first child in December 2012 and their daughter Eisele Kay was born in July 2013. The couple had their twin daughters in January 2018.
