Country music has infiltrated the 2011 Grammy nominations, with Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band, Jamey Johnson and more up for some huge awards, while the music of Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert transcends into multiple-genre categories.

Miranda Lambert received an especially big nod by being nominated for Song of the Year for ‘The House That Built Me,’ up against fellow country music stars Lady Antebellum with their song, ‘Need You Now.’ The trio is also sitting on nominations for Record of the Year — and Album of the Year for their 2010 release with the same title — for a total of six nominations at this year’s Grammys.

Zac Brown Band were recognized for their amazing year with nominations in four categories, thanks to their 2010 record ‘You Get What You Give,’ which is up for Best Country Album. The band is hopeful their single ‘Free’ will take home both Best Country Song and Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals.

Tune in to the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 13 on CBS to see which country music stars take home Grammys in 2011.
