'Band Perry' Receives Grammy Nomination

Accolades continue to roll in for The Band Perry, and the honors just keep getting more prestigious as they go.

The group was nominated on Wednesday for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Country Song of the year for their No. 1 hit, "If I Die Young."

"AHHHHHHHH!! We just found out that "If I Die Young" got nominated for a Grammy!! Can't believe we just got to say that out loud. Cake for everyone!!!," the group posted on its Facebook page early this morning.

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

The Grammy nomination tops a year in which the band that calls Greeneville home released its debut album, was nominated for CMA and ACA awards and made a prime-time televised appearance last month during the CMA Awards in Nashville.

How many of the 4,000 or so Greene Countians that showed up in downtown Greeneville on Oct. 10 for a hastily-organized concert by The Band Perry thought that less than two months later the band would have the No. 1 country song in the nation, and be nominated for a Grammy?

Other Grammy nominees for Best Country Song are George Strait, for "The Breath I Take"; Zac Brown Band, for "Free"; Miranda Lambert for "The House That Built Me"; Gretchen Wilson for "I'd Love To Be Your Last"; and Lady Antebellum for "Need You Now."

The Band Perry remains busy and on the road in the lead-up to Christmas. The group is in Fort Wayne, Ind., on Saturday and then plays through Dec. 19 in Tucson, Ariz., Houston, Mobile, Ala., St. Louis and Pittsburgh.
