ABC/Image Group LALady Antebellum in no stranger to winning Grammy, CMA and ACM Awards, but when the 2018 Tonys are handed out this summer in New York City, the trio could take home an equally prestigious prize for their work on Broadway.

Lady A is nominated for “Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre” for their contribution to SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical. Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood wrote the new tune “Chop to the Top” for the show about the popular sponge who lives under the sea in a pineapple.

Cyndi Lauper, Steven Tyler & Joe Perry of Aerosmith, John Legend and others could also take home trophies for their contributions to SpongeBob. The musical ties Mean Girls as the most-nominated this year, with a dozen nods apiece.

We’ll find out if Lady A can grab a Tony June 10, when the awards air live from NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, starting at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
