(AUDIO) AS A MOM, PURSUING HER DREAM IS IMPORTANT TO LADY A’S HILLARY SCOTT

All of the members of Lady A are parents, which means every decision they make about their career is that much more impactful and important.  And even though Hillary Scott has three little girls, whom she would love to stay home with all the time, she actually feels like she would be doing them a disservice if she didn’t chase her dream and follow her passion to make music.  “I feel like I’m being pulled by both my arms and I’m a perforated page. That’s how it will always be [between] the pull of parenthood and the pull of a calling and a dream that we’re so blessed to be able to chase and do and call our career.

The mix of emotions of trying to be a successful career woman and a good mom can be strong.  Hillary says, “It’s very, very right on the surface and raw.”

At the same time, she knows that what she feels is what millions of other people feel, whether they have to leave their kids for eight hours or eight days or eight months because of their career.  And for Hillary, pursuing her dream and living out her passion is also a part of being a good parent, because she says, “It’s hard to leave them when they’re your world, they’re your responsibility, but wanting them to understand because we have children, to raise them up to be good humans, that this is a part of life and to chase a dream and want them to find the same thing.”

Fortunately, Lady A has been able to enjoy a lot of unexpected time with their kids during the quarantine, and they’ve been able to make national media appearances to promote their latest single, “Champagne Night,” virtually, but it won’t always be like that.  But when they do start to tour and travel again, Hillary wants to live as an example for her daughters, that you can be a good mom and chase your dreams.

Lady A – pull of parenthood  :55

Hillary Scott – “I feel like I’m being pulled by both my arms and I’m a perforated page. That’s how it will always be.  The pull of parenthood and the pull of a calling and a dream that we’re so blessed to be able to chase and do and call our career. So it’s very, very right on the surface and raw.  And I think about other families like moms coming back from maternity leave.  I think about my best friend whose husband’s in the Navy and deploys for months at a time. I mean you can really think about any walk of life, any job, the pull of parenthood, it’s hard for anybody to leave their house.  Even if you leave in the morning at 8:00 and come home at 5:00, it’s hard to leave them when they’re your world, they’re your responsibility, but wanting them to understand, because we have children to raise them up to be good humans, that this is a part of life and to chase a dream and want them to find the same thing.
