The Band Perry took home their first Grammy®Award for the Best Country Duo/Group Performance. The trio was honored for their rendition of the Glen Campbell classic, "Gentle on My Mind," a song they actually performed on the Grammy stage three years ago with Campbell as part of a tribute to the legendary artist. The trio was then asked to record the song for the James Keach directed documentary Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.
"Winning a Grammy Award® is not only an honor but it's completely life changing," said The Band Perry. "It has come full circle since we played this song on the Grammy Awards® three years ago with Glen Campbell, and if you would have told us then that we would record his song and win an award for it we wouldn't have believed it. We want to send a big thanks to everyone that has helped us along the way including our incredible fans."
There was no resting for the reigning ACM Vocal Group of the Year who made appearances at the Billboard Power 100 party as curators for the third annual GRAMMY Amplifier® Program and the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year event before they flew to Texas to play a concert at the Rodeo Austin Gala. They returned to Los Angeles Sunday just in time for the Grammy Awards® Ceremony.
