The 59th Grammy Awards proved to be a day to remember for Hillary Scott and The Scott Family; and, leaving a family legacy was a big part of it... 

"Legacy is a perfect word," Hillary shares after being asked what it feels like to have her family with her at this year's show. "I think we all want to do something on this earth and leave a mark that makes the world better and to be able to do that with your family, I think is the ultimate ... it's the ultimate gift.”

Hillary, along with her family, went on to win Grammy Awards in two categories: Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for " Thy Will" and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Love Remains.

After receiving the award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album, Hillary choked back tears saying, "Thank you so much. I want my daddy to talk." Lang Scott, Hillary's dad, went on to summarize the touching story and hope behind their album:

“We've been crying since this project started," Lang says. “This started as a thank-you to three-hundred people, close friends and family, that supported us through their prayers and love as we battled with my dad for a six month period of time over leukemia. We are humbled ... from day one our hope was that this music would bring hope to people. Our prayer, from day one and throughout, was that it would permeate to people that would hear it that are in need and that it would give them comfort and encourage them. So, we are grateful as a family.”

There were more opportunities to celebrate throughout the day - like this time when Hillary got together for a photo with fellow nominees Joel & Luke Smallbone of for King & Country

 

And, this one where the Smallbone family made memories, if a tad awkward, of their own:
