Lady Antebellum and Taylor Swift have snagged awards in country music categories.
Swift ran on stage during the Grammys pre-telecast to accept her award for "White Horse" in the best female country vocal performance category.
"This is my first Grammy you guys! I mean this is a Grammy!" Swift said. "I live in awe of all the great people I competed with."
Although country trio Lady Antebellum came on the scene in 2006, the group also nabbed its first Grammy tonight. Their latest single, "I Run to You," won the award for best country performance by a group or duo.
"This is the biggest honor I think for a musician," Charles Kelley explained. "To have one before the show even starts is an amazing feeling. We get to perform our latest single, and we have our record coming out on Tuesday."
The album, "Need You Now," is expected to top Billboard charts, but Kelley said they're not counting their eggs before they hatch.
The group already started celebrating in anticipation for the release of their second album, Hillary Scott said. "We didn’t think it could get any better, but it just did."
