The Band Perry Takes Home Top Honors At The ACM Awards
The Band Perry took home the Best New Artist award and the Best New Vocal Group award at the 46th annual Academy of Country Music awards last night.
Wow, we are a family band here, lead singer Kimberly Perry said as she accepted the award with her band members, brothers Reid Perry and Neil Perry. We are so humbled by this and our songs belong to you.
The family band, who beat out Eric Church for the Best New Artist award, singed with the record label Republic Nashville in 2009. They released their first self titled album in 2010, which includes the hit singles "Hip to My Heart," You Lie and "If I Die Young," which has been certified platinum.
"We believe that country music is the people's music," said Kimberly Perry, who performed with her brothers at the ACM awards for the first time last night. "And it is our greatest desire to be their band."
Other winners of the night include Taylor Swift, who took home the Entertainer of the Year award; Lady Antebellum, who took home the Top Vocal Group award and Album of the Year award; and Miranda Lambert, who took home the Top Female Vocalist award, the Song of the Year award and the Video of the Year award.
