Did you know?: Between the album Need You Now and its title song, country vocal group Lady Antebellum won five statues at the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards. The group has a noteworthy musical pedigree: Male lead Charles Kelley is the brother of singer/songwriter Josh Kelley and female lead Hillary Scott is the daughter of GRAMMY-winning country singer Linda Davis. "Need You Now" was co-written by the band with Josh Kear, whose hits include Carrie Underwood's GRAMMY-winning "Before He Cheats," which he co-wrote with Chris Tompkins. Need You Now topped the Billboard 200 and Country Albums charts in 2010, and the title track reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went all the way to the top on the Hot Country Songs chart. Lady A's 53rd GRAMMY Awards performance, a medley of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes' "If You Don't Know Me By Now" and the group's own "American Honey" and "Need You Now," is currently available for download at iTunes.
