Grammy Preview

The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will broadcast live on Sunday, at 7 p.m. cst on the CBS Network.

Lady Antebellum fronts country music at annual Grammy Awards with three nominations in the overall category while Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert join Lady A as leaders within the genre. The big question remains whether Lady Antebellum will help country music retain the prestigious “Album of the Year” title in 2011,  a Grammy that Taylor Swift took home in 2010. (No pressure, but we need you now!)

Here’s a look at this year’s country music nominations, at a glance:

Lady Antebellum makes their debut into the “overall” Grammy category with three nominations for “Record of the Year”, “Song of the Year” and “Album of the Year” for their sophomore release, “Need You Now”. Combined with their nominations for “Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal” “Best Country Song” in the country music category, Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood are poised to walk away with six Grammys. The trio picked up their first Grammy back in 2010 for “Best Country Performance by Duo or Group with Vocals”.

If Miranda Lambert picks up a win, this will be her first Grammy win. Lambert’s had quite the success with her 2009 album release “Revolution”, which has garnered the 27-year-old a both CMA and a ACM awards.

Dierks Bentley scored three nominations, for “Country Album of the Year” for his 2010 bluegrass release, “Up on the Ridge” and two nominations in the “collaboration” category. This will be Bentley’s first Grammy win.

Newcomers Kimberly Perry (The Band Perry), David Nail and Chris Young pick up their first Grammy nominations.

Last year was Taylor Swift’s big year four wins, including the overall “Album of the Year” for “Fearless” and the Zac Brown Band picked up their first Grammy for the overall “Best New Artist”.
