Lady Antebellum Among Nominees for 2011 Album of the Year Grammy
Lady Antebellum cap off their six 2011 Grammy Award nominations – the most for any country artist – by virtue of their 2010 album ‘Need You Now’ being entered in the coveted Album of the Year category. They join rapper Eminem, pop divas Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, and independent rock sensations Arcade Fire in this prestigious field.
‘Need You Now,’ the extremely popular trio’s second studio album, has sold over three million copies since its release in January and has spawned four hit singles: the title track, which is also up for many awards as you’ll read below, ‘American Honey,’ ‘Our Kind of Love,’ and most recently, ‘Hello World.’
You know, when you think about it, ‘Hello World’ is an odd title for the fourth single of your second straight platinum-plus album. Wouldn’t you think that mostly anybody you could ever hope to reach probably knows all about you already?
Regardless, in addition to their Album of the Year Grammy nomination, Lady Antebellum are also up for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, Best Country Song, Best Country Album, Song of the Year and Record of the Year this year.
The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will air Feb. 13th on CBS.
