Here are some excerpts from Lady Antbellum‘s Hillary Scott in the December issue of Redbook magazine due on newsstands November 15th:

On being the only girl in the band:
I don’t mind it. There are moments when I’m like, If I hear one more ‘That’s what she said’ joke, I’m going to pull my hair out. But for the most part, the guys are so easygoing, and there’s no drama. In high school I was the manager of the football team, so being around boys is natural to me!

On her meeting her fiancé Chris:

We met in college—we went to different schools in Tennessee and met through mutual friends. I thought off the bat that he was really attractive, and I could tell that he was kind. Kindness just oozes out of him. I wanted to date him when I met him! And he just wanted to play basketball. [Laughs]

On growing up as the daughter of musicians traveling with Reba McEntire’s band:
I was homeschooled on the road for kindergarten, then went to elementary school and a private Christian school while living with my grandparents until I graduated, and I loved it. But my parents were gone a lot. I’ve learned to adapt my whole life, and I’m thankful for that, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t mad for a couple of years in middle school!
On her favorite performance with the band:
We sang the national anthem at the Jets-Cowboys game this past September 11, and it was so emotional. Right before, we gathered to say a prayer. Our nerves were crazy—we wanted to do a great job, but we also knew we were singing the national anthem on September 11, on national television, for one of the biggest football audiences ever. We prayed, and the peace that came over us as we took the field was unbelievable.
