Lady Antebellum and Eminem each have five nominations for the 2010 American Music Awards, which will air this Sunday, November 21 on ABC. Though they hail from different genres, the trio say they see some similarities in their music.

"He is known for his honesty in his lyric, even though it may be a little intense at times," says Lady A's Hillary Scott. "We try to be as honest as we can be in songwriting, as well. He's amazing. I remember the first time I was watching 'Total Request Live' and seeing his first video be played on it. To think we're running in nominations with him, it's just amazing."

When Lady Antebellum group members wrote their mega-hit, the CMA-winning and AMA-nominated 'Need You Now,' they were also honest in their evaluation of its potential. According to Dave Haywood, they took a wait-and-see attitude about the song.

"When we wrote it, we liked it but but we said, 'Well we'll put it to the side and see if we get back to it.' We give our producer, Paul Worley, credit for taking the song and shaping it into what it became."

The trio may have just taken home two CMA trophies, but they're not sitting around waiting to see what their next accolade will be.

"We're always thinking about our next record," Charles Kelley says. "The minute we are done with one, we are writing for the next one. We write a lot out on the road, so we've already written a bunch for our next project. Once again we have more songs than we will need, plus we are getting pitched some of the most amazing songs that we are thinking about recording. Music is our passion."

Months before the recent awards show, Charles predicted that Miranda Lambert would take home Album of the Year for 'Revolution,' and he was right. The three are thrilled that their friend and co-writing buddy took home multiple trophies for her music. "I think if you're looking for a definition of a true country artist, you would have to say Miranda," Hillary Scott says. She's one of my best friends, and her talent and voice and songwriting is awesome. 'Revolution' is a masterpiece."

Charles agrees, adding, "When I first listened to the album, I played 'The House That Built Me' over and over again, and I was crying. I texted her and told her what a great song I thought it was."

Lady Antebellum are nominated for Favorite Band, Duo or Group in the Pop/Rock and Country categories, Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist, Breakthrough Artist and Favorite Country Album for the American Music Awards. The duo agrees being on the awards show is a great way to head into Thanksgiving week.

Among the performers on the AMAs are Taylor Swift, Kid Rock, Miley Cyrus, Bon Jovi, Black Eyed Peas, Train, Backstreet Boys & New Kids on the Block and Christina Aguilera. The show airs live from the NOKIA Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 21at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.
