6. When Lady Antebellum capped off an incredible breakout year.
Lady Antebellum gave country a huge moment in the spotlight at the 2011 GRAMMY Awards when they scooped up five awards, including Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.
Those two wins recognized their smash hit "Need You Now," which was pleading call for late-night companionship and was performed live by the country-pop trio on the GRAMMY stage that night.
With five golden gramophones under their leather belts, the band was poised for a breakout year, which helped usher in their next album, 2011's Own The Night, which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200.
