Sure, there were plenty of country performers and presenters Sunday night (Feb. 12) on the Grammy awards show.

But in the only country category presented during the telecast, Lady Antebellum pulled what the trio considered an upset in the best country album category.

Lady A picked up a seventh career Grammy for Own the Night, beating out albums from Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Jason Aldean and Eric Church

"We were surprised, we thought it was Taylor's night," the trio told reporters backstage.

Onstage, Charles Kelley thanked fans and voters.

"Thanks for changing our lives last year," he said.
