The Band Perry named Best New Artist at the ACM Awards

The Band Perry won Top New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards tonight and then beat out Top New Solo Vocalist of the Year winner Eric Church for the honor of Top New Artist.

Even though I love country music, at first, I was thinking The Band Perry who?  But, then I realized that I’d heard their song “If I Die Young” all over the place.

“If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song”
