Country music stars including Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum made a strong impression on the 2011 Grammy Awards with their exciting live performances.

Now, not to start a fight with any pop artist in particular, but it did seem that overall, the country stars relied less on spectacle, props and other tricks to get their songs across. In most cases, the artists featured in the photo gallery here stuck to good old-fashioned live signing and performing. See for yourself how it all went down with these wonderful pictures from the 2011 Grammys.
