Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott to Mentor Team Adam on "The Voice"

NBCLady Antebellum was a guest artist on Maroon 5's album Hands All Over, and now singer Adam Levine and Lady A's Hillary Scott are collaborating again.  Access Hollywood reports that Hillary, who's pregnant with her first child, will be a mentor for Adam's team on season four of The Voice.

Adam tells Access, "I was so happy that Hillary was interested in coming on The Voice to mentor my team...She is an incredible performer and artist.  I know my team will be able to learn a lot from her."

As for Hillary, she tells Access, "I was so excited to join Adam for a couple days on The Voice.  It’s an honor to mentor his team… he’s going to have some tough choices to make!"  Hillary joked that she and Adam will "have way more fun than Blake's team!"

It's not surprising that Hillary was so psyched about working with Adam: she's a massive Maroon 5 fan. She told ABC News Radio a while back, "I think if I were to put their first album Songs About Jane into my CD player right now, it would skip really bad because I listened to it so much!"

She added, "I'm a huge fan of theirs and of Adam's voice, I think it's unbelievable and so recognizable, you know it immediately when you hear it.

Adam, meanwhile, says he and Maroon 5 really loved working with Hillary and the rest of Lady A on the song that appeared on Hands All Over, "Out of Goodbyes."

"We thought, 'Hey, this needs some country, this needs some twang that we don't really have,'" Adam recalls about working on the song.  "So we thought they'd be perfect 'cause they added those elements in there musically, and of course Hillary's an incredible singer. So it was a really great moment and I really loved the tune."   

Adam's previous Voice mentors for his team have included Mary J. Blige, Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke.  Season four of The Voice, with new coaches Usher and Shakira, premieres March 25 on NBC.
