2011 Grammy Nominees’ Album Includes Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert

No question, Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert each had a big year in 2010, and it looks like their good fortunes will continue into 2011. Both are up for Grammy awards.

In honor of the 2011 Grammy Nominees, the academy has announced the tracklisting for its annual nominees’ album in preparation for the awards ceremony on Feb. 13. And it’s no surprise Lady Antebellum‘s ‘Need You Now’ and Miranda Lambert‘s ‘The House That Built Me’ made the cut, as the artists each earned six and five nominations, respectively.

The song ‘Need You Now’ earned four nominations, namely Best Country Performance By a Duo or Group With Vocals and Best Country Song, as well as the all-genre categories Song of the Year and Record of the Year. Helmed by Paul Worley, the song — that somehow approves late night drunk-dialing — was penned by the trio (Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood) and Josh Kear.

Lambert’s acoustic ballad ‘The House That Built Me’ from her latest album ‘Revolution’ also earns a Song of the Year nod, as well as a Best Female Country Vocal Performance and a Best Country Song nomination. Her touching take of revisiting her childhood home and the nostalgic memories that go with it was written by industry veterans Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin.

Proceeds from the 19-song collection will benefit the MusiCares Foundation as well as the Grammy Foundation, both established by the Recording Academy. The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 13 at 8:00 PM.
