The Band Perry consists of sibling musicians Kimberly Perry, Neil Perry and Reid Perry.

They are the children of Greeneville pediatrician Steve Perry and his wife, Marie. The family have lived in Greene County since 2002.

The ACM also has another fan-voted category for country newcomers, the "Top New Solo Vocalists" award. Nominees in this category are Eric Church, Easton Corbin and Randy Houser.

The winner from both categories will be announced in March and will move on to compete for "Top New ACM Artist."

Fan voting for Top New Artist begins March 11, and the winner will be announced live at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas on April 3.

The complete list of nominees for the ACM Awards will be announced in February.


The Band Perry enjoyed a meteoric rise to success in 2010.

In October, they released their debut album, which has produced two Top 20 hit singles, including the platinum-selling, No. 1 hit "If I Die Young."

The song, which was written by Kimberly Perry, has been nominated for a Grammy Award for "Best Country Song of the Year."

The 53rd annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast at 8 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 13, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles by CBS.

The group's latest single, "You Lie," also from their debut album, has just been released to radio.

In December, it was announced that The Band Perry will be hitting the road with country music superstar Tim McGraw for an extensive North American concert tour, beginning this spring.

The tour will also feature country newcomer Luke Bryan.

This past fall, The Band Perry toured with country superstar Alan Jackson.
