This week marks significant milestones for The Band Perry. Following their performance on The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!, the sibling trio received its first Grammy nomination in the all-genre Best New Artist category, and now the group’s debut album has been certified Platinum by the RIAA.

“We are excited and honored beyond belief. A Grammy nomination is like a gold star from the people you most look up to. As we begin our next album, this is a great vote of confidence…we promise not to let you down,” said Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry.

The Grammy contenders, already the reigning ACM and CMA New Artists award winners, show no signs of slowing down after coming off Reba‘s All The Women I Am Tour as well as headlining their own concert dates (including a sold-out Ryman show in February 2012). They’re set to join Brad Paisley’s Camobunga! 2012 World Tour in January and will continue working on their second album.

“In this environment, it takes something amazing to break through and The Band Perry has done just that with some extraordinary feats,” said Jimmy Harnen, Republic Nashville President. “There has always been something uniquely special about their music and them as individuals. On behalf of Republic Nashville, we couldn’t be prouder of Kimberly, Reid and Neil, who accolade after accolade, continue to be dedicated and humble,”

The Band Perry’s self-titled debut album features the No. 1, triple-Platinum smash “If I Die Young;” Gold-certified single “You Lie,” and their current single “All Your Life.”
