Lady Antebellum can sing, but how are their Christmas tree trimming skills? The band loves decorating for Christmas, with the tree being the centerpiece. Hillary Scott, who will be celebrating her first Christmas as a mother, goes to her own mother’s house in search of very specific ornaments.

Now that I’m older, I love ‘em. And if they’re not on the tree, I’m like, ‘Mama, where are they? Where are the snowmen icicle lights this year?’” Continue Reading
