Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” Earns Song of the Year Grammy Award

At last year’s Grammys, Lady Antebellum performed its hit “Need You Now” to kick a mainstream crossover into high gear. This year, the song earned the trio, along with songwriting partner Josh Kear, won one of the big four Grammy Awards.

The group’s biggest hit to date garnered the coveted “Song of the Year” prize at the 2011 Grammy Awards. The victory came shortly after a Lady Antebellum medley that included a slower, stripped-down version of the song.

“Need You Now” beat out Cee-Lo Green’s “F*ck you,” Ray LaMontagne’s “Beg Steal or Borrow,” Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” and Miranda Lambert’s “The House that Built Me.”
