She worked with Victoria Shaw and even auditioned for “American Idol” twice but couldn’t make it to the judges round. She then met future band mates Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley; they decided to write and play songs together. However, Hillary convinced Kelley that they would be better as a duet, and it led to the formation of Lady Antebellum.
They released their debut single “Love Don’t Live Here” and it reached the third spot of the Billboard’s Hot Country Song charts. Afterwards, they released their self-titled debut album in 2008, and it would reach the top spot of the Top Country Albums chart.
