Greeneville Trio

Is Vying For 'Vocal

Group Of The Year'


Greeneville's The Band Perry received word on Tuesday that it had been nominated for a prestigious Country Music Association (CMA) Award.

The trio, which consists of Kim Perry and her two brothers Neil Perry and Reid Perry, have been nominated for the CMA's Vocal Group of the Year Award.

The Band Perry shares the Vocal Group nomination with such big names in country music as Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts and Zac Brown Band.

The Perrys are the children of Greeneville pediatrician, Dr. Stephen Perry, and his wife, Marie.

The family moved from Mobile, Ala., to Greeneville in 2002.

Dr. Perry is a pediatrician with Greene Mountain Pediatrics.

Kim Perry is the group's lead vocalist and plays rhythm guitar, Neil Perry plays mandolin, drums and accordion, and Reid Perry plays bass guitar.

The group's first album is not even scheduled for release until Oct. 12, a fact that makes it even more noteworthy to be honored as a nominee for Vocal Group of the Year.

The first round of nominations for the annual CMA Awards were announced Tuesday.

Since signing with the Nashville-based Republic record label last summer, the trio has already had two hit singles, "Hip to My Heart" and "If I Die Young."


According to Associated Press reports, Miranda Lambert leads the first round of CMA Awards nominations with five, followed closely by Lady Antebellum with four and the Zac Brown Band with three.

Lambert is competing against herself twice. "The House That Built Me" and "White Liar" are both up for single of the year and music video of the year. She's also nominated for writing song of the year contender "White Liar."

Other song of the year nominees include "The House That Built Me"; "Need You Now, co-written by Lady Antebellum; "Toes" co-written by Zac Brown; and Easton Corbin's "A Little More Country Than That."

In the second round of announcements, Lambert's total jumped to nine, including Entertainer of the Year, for which Lady Antebellum and Zac Brown Band also are nominated.

Other Entertainer of the Year nominees are Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.

Paisley and Urban also are nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year, with Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton and George Strait.

Female Vocalist of the Year nominees are: Lambert, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood.

Album of the Year nominees are: "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum, "Play On" by Carrie Underwood, "Revolution" by Miranda Lambert, "Twang" by George Strait and "Up On the Ridge" by Dierks Bentley.
