Hillary Scott Couldn’t Attend the 2018 Grammy Awards, So Her Cardboard Self Did
Hillary Scott's twin girls are due any day now, which meant the Lady Antebellum member couldn't attend the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Jan. 28) in New York City; however, her bandmates made sure she wasn't forgotten on Music's Biggest Night. Eagle-eyed country fans may have spotted Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood carrying around a cardboard cutout of Scott's face during the awards show.
On Instagram, Kelley and Haywood shared a photo of themselves and their wives enjoying a pre-show cocktail, with Scott's cardboard likeness also getting in on the fun (though we're guessing that's a water for her!). The guys even added a white rose to cardboard Scott's Grammys outfit, to show her support for the Time's Up initiative.
When the Best Country Album category was announce during the 2018 Grammy Awards telecast, Kelley was holding up Scott's cardboard cutout when the cameras panned to him and Haywood. Scott, watching from home, couldn't have been more excited about it.
"I started bawling and laughing equally," she writes on Instagram. "I literally have the best bandmates and family in the whole wide world. It’s been a bittersweet day not being in NYC, but I’ve never felt more in two places at once."
Lady Antebellum walked away from the 2018 Grammy Awards empty-handed: They lost Best Country Album to Chris Stapleton, and Little Big Town took home Best Country Duo / Group Performance.
