HILLARY SCOTT of CAPITOL RECORDS NASHVILLE group LADY ANTEBELLUM established a scholarship fund at her alma mater, MIDDLE TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY, YESTERDAY (9/22). SCOTT created a scholarship for young women who aspire to be in the music business industry. LADY ANTEBELLUM Manager DANIEL MILLER, quoted in the TENNESSEAN, said of the scholarship, “Whether it be a songwriter, a producer, an engineer, whatever… hopefully this will allow several young women the opportunity to achieve their dreams indefinitely.”
SCOTT's father was a songwriter who funded his daughter's MTSU education with income earned from a song on LEANN RIMES' first album. HILLARY is funding the scholarship personally to pay it forward. MTSU was celebrating the rebranding of its former COLLEGE OF MASS COMMUNICATION, and SCOTT’s contribution went to the newly named COLLEGE OF MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT.
