Hillary Scott & The Scott Family's "Thy Will" has hit No. 1 on the National Christian Audience Chart. In addition, the single holds the No. 1 position on Billboard's Christian Digital Songs chart for the 13th consecutive week along with the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart for the seventh week.
Written by Hillary Scott, Emily Weisban and Bernie Herms and co-produced by Ricky Skaggs and Herms, the track is the lead single from the faith-based album LOVE REMAINS, which hit the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Christian Albums chart upon its July 29 debut.
"I'm honestly speechless," said Hillary Scott. "Trying to put into words how thankful I am to not only have the chance to do this with my family, but to be embraced the way we have is pretty much impossible. Our hearts are bursting with love for everyone who was a part of helping make this happen and to the fans for taking this journey with us!"
