“Today Show” Appearance Sends Hillary Scott’s 8 Year Old Song, Album to Top of Charts Overnight (Watch)


Talk about a curve ball on the pop charts!

Yesterday morning, Hillary Scott — of Lady A (formerly Lady Antebellum) appeared and sang on the Today show.

Scott sang an 8 year old song called “Beautiful Messes,” at the request of host Savannah Guthrie. Turns out the two have become fast friends. In the video below, Hoda Kotb explains that she asked Savannah to get Scott on the show. “Beautiful Messes” they say is Savannah’s favorite song.

The result? The 2016 single and album of the same name have rocketed to the top of iTunes. Who says the Today show doesn’t have power? Scott has knocked off JLo’s new album and upended the charts in a day! All bets are now off. And now everyone will want to play their song on the 60 year old morning program.
