Lady Antebellum, the music group with Augusta connections, has been nominated for six Grammy Awards.

Their album Need You Now was the second-best selling album of the year, a huge crossover hit for the band. Grammy voters rewarded that success, nominating them for album of the year and record and song of the year for the hit.

Only last year, they were celebrating their first Grammy win.

"It's been a wild and crazy year; it definitely feels like Christmas came early for us," said Lady A's Dave Haywood in a telephone interview after the nominations were announced. He wasn't watching with his bandmates, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott, but they watched the special and texted each other.

"It's just kind of complete shock that we'd be recognized, especially to be recognized in some of these all-genre categories," said Haywood. "It's pretty bizarre for a couple of rednecks from Tennessee and Georgia."
