Pregnant Hillary Scott braves heat to perform at Stagecoach

Singer Hillary Scott braved the stifling heat to perform with her band Lady Antebellum at the Stagecoach Festival on Saturday (27Apr13) while heavily pregnant. Temperatures hit a high of 104 degrees at the music fairgrounds in Indio, making an uncomfortable situation for Scott, who is currently expecting her first child with her drummer husband Chris Tyrrell, a baby girl due in July (13).
The musician waited out the duration of the event in her air-conditioned trailer until the group took to the stage in front of more than 40,000 fans, and she carried on with the trio’s 90-minute set like a pro, opening with the first single off the band’s upcoming Golden album, Downtown.
The group played a number of hits before welcoming fellow performer Dierks Bentley for a surprise rendition of Bruce Springsteen’s I’m On Fire, and the show ended with a two-song encore of I Need You Now and We Owned the Night.
Scott’s bandmate, Charles Kelley, joked the next time they play the festival there would be a fourth member of Lady Antebellum, saying, “We’re going to start her really young.”
