Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Taylor Swift + More Country-Rock the Grammys
We've all heard the saying, "It's an honor just to be nominated." But when it comes to the Grammy Awards, perhaps an even bigger honor is being asked to perform. Lady Antebellum was blessed with a coveted performance slot on the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, singing their country/pop crossover hit, 'Need You Now.'
Country music was uncharacteristically well represented at Sunday's Grammys, as Best New Artist winners the Zac Brown Band also sang, accompanied by the legendary Leon Russell, in a medley of 'American the Beautiful' and 'Chicken Fried,' followed by a rockin' guitar jam. Carrie Underwood joined a cross-genre group in a touching tribute to Michael Jackson. Taylor Swift was joined by one of her musical heroes, Stevie Nicks, on 'You Belong With Me.' And Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles joined Bon Jovi for their duet, 'Who Says You Can't Go Home,' along with the Bon Jovi classic, 'Living on a Prayer.'
