The Best Country Song category for this year’s upcoming 53rd Annual Grammy Awards boasts six stellar singles by the likes of The Band Perry, George Strait, Lady Antebellum and others. All of the songs have similar stories of love, humility and living life to the fullest. But only one can win the Best Country Song title come Feb. 13.

George Strait never really took a break from releasing albums since his debut in ’81, but his most recent single off 2010′s ‘Twang’ album savors the important events in life, written by a father-daughter songwriting team alongside Casey Beathard.

George may have seniority, but he’s matched up against several powerhouse groups: Zac Brown Band and their nostalgic memories of touring in a van in the song ‘Free,’ Lady A’s massive cross-genre hit ‘Need You Now’ and newcomers The Band Perry, whose single ‘If I Die Young,’ became the trio’s first-ever No. 1 country single.

Plus, Miranda Lambert and Gretchen Wilson are both up for Best Country Song nominations as well. Their nominated songs, ‘The House That Built Me’ and ‘I’d Love to Be Your Last,’ are both nominated for Best Female Country Performance as well, which may or may not give them a little more leverage.

2011 Grammy Nominees for Best Country Song:

‘The Breath You Take,’ George Strait
‘Free,’ Zac Brown Band
‘The House That Built Me,’ Miranda Lambert
‘I’d Love to Be Your Last,’ Gretchen Wilson
‘If I Die Young,’ The Band Perry
‘Need You Now,’ Lady Antebellum
