Lady Antebellum Earn Record of the Year Grammy Nomination
Lady Antebellum’s genre bending record ‘Need You Now’ rightfully earns a Record of the Year nomination, one of the four prestigious Grammy categories. And although the trio’s performance is stellar — Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley contributing lead and harmonized vocals and Dave Haywood playing acoustic guitar — the record nomination also acknowledges the producer, Paul Worley, who helmed the entire album of the same name. He has produced for Big & Rich, Martina McBride, and the Dixie Chicks — his work on the Dixie Chicks’ albums ‘Wide Open Spaces’ and ‘Fly’ won him two Grammy Awards for Best Country Album.
The title track ‘Need You Now’ is also being nominated for Best Country Performance By a Duo or Group With Vocals, Song of the Year and Best Country Song. See below for the rest of the nominees for Record of Year. The 53rd annual Grammy Awards airs Feb. 13 on CBS.
