The trio won Best Country Album for 2011’s Own the Night. It is the second year in a row they took the category.

Lady A was the big winner at last year’s Grammys with five awards, including Record and Song of the Year, for the band’s yearning crossover ballad Need You Now. They also won Best Country Performance by Duo or Group with Vocals for 2010’s I Run to You.

On stage, the trio, including Columbia County natives Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, thanked their label and others who helped produce the album.

Wearing coordinated but “simple” outfits they told The Associated Press during an interview on their way into the auditorium that they were nervous about winning their seventh golden statue.

“To come back this year and have another (nomination) is really special,” Kelley said.

Hillary Scott, wearing a long purple dress, said she had “butterflies.”

“We know there will be a time when we don’t have nominations,” Kelley said. “We’re soaking it up.”

Scott showed off her wedding ring from new husband Chris Tyrell. The two were married in January.
