Lady Antebellum Gets 7 ACM Nominations
Things just keep on getting better for country trio Lady Antebellum. The band is in the running for seven Academy of Country Music Awards. The nominees for one of country music’s biggest events were announced on Tuesday.
Lady Antebellum’s monster hit “Need You Now” is nominated for Single Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year, while the band members got the nod for producer for Single Record of the Year and composer for Song of the Year. The band is also up for Top Vocal Group and Album of the Year for “Lady Antebellum.”
The group composed of Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, and Hillary Scott has been on a winning streak as of late. The trio scored their first number one single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs when “I Run to You” climbed to the top in July last year. The song later on became Billboard’s number one country single for 2009.
Meanwhile, reigning Entertainer of the Year Carrie Underwood is again nominated for the same award. She is joined in the centerpiece category by Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Brad Praisley, George Strait, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, and the Zac Brown Band.
The awards night will be held on April 18 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
