>• The country trio—Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood—is up for two Grammys (Best New Artist!) on Feb. 8.

ON GRAMMY NIGHT
“My mom told me to soak it up for everything it’s worth,” says Scott, 22, whose mother, Linda Davis, won a Grammy with Reba McEntire in 1994. Meanwhile, Haywood, 26, would like to meet a certain boy band: “I’d like to shake the Jonas Brothers‘ hands and say congrats.” As for Kelley, 27, he says, “I asked my brother [singer-songwriter Josh Kelley] to go with me because he was the one who talked me into coming to Nashville.”

“Just the chance to play our music in front of that many people, it’s going to require us to step up our game,” says Scott. But also, adds Haywood, “I think there will be a little partying, from what I hear!”
