Fellow band member, Charles Kelley thanked his brother who made him move to Nashville six years ago. Lady Antebellum also performed their hit ‘Hello World’ at the awards and the web has been abuzz since then with the lyrics and details of the song.
Lady Antebellum won the Single of the Year awards for their smash hit ‘Need You Know’. Later in the night they raised their tally to two with the ‘Vocal Group of the Year Award’.
