STAFF WRITER

Two days of whirlwind coast-to-coast performances continued today for The Band Perry as they whisked from Sunday night's live performance at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles to a scheduled performance tonight at the White House.

In Washington, D.C., the Perrys will be part of the "In Performance at the White House" concert series, hosted by President and Mrs. Obama.

This segment of the "In Performance at the White House" concert series features country music, with contemporary country artists paying tribute to many of country music's iconic figures.

The 8 p.m. White House concert will stream live on http://www.whitehouse.gov/live and will be broadcast by PBS television this Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 8 p.m.

Other performers at the White House concert will be Lauren Alaina, Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Lyle Lovett, Darius Rucker and James Taylor.

Some of the participating country performers were scheduled to take part in a History of Country Music workshop for about 120 students this afternoon.

AMA AWARDS

The Band Perry came away empty-handed Sunday night from the 39th annual American Music Awards, but the Greeneville musical trio was honored in their genre by being the only country act among the 17 musical performances during the awards show.

In the first half-hour of the awards telecast, The Band Perry performed their megahit single "If I Die Young."

Their performance was followed by a standing ovation by many of the artists and other guests at the awards show.

The Perrys were nominated for three AMAs:

* Favorite Country Band/Duo/Group, which was awarded to Lady Antebellum;

* Favorite New Artist, which went to Hot Chelle Rae, and

* Favorite Country Album, which was presented to Taylor Swift for "Speak Now."

On the way to the stage to accept her award, Swift stopped briefly to hug Kimberly Perry, who was standing and clapping in congratulations with her brothers, Neil and Reid.

Swift also won two other AMAs for "Favorite Female Artist" and "Artist of the Year."
