GRAMMYWATCH - THE BAND PERRY
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Losing has never felt better to The Band Perry. They got their first Grammy nomination last year in the best country song category for "If I Die Young," but lost to Lady Antebellum. Lead singer Kimberly Perry calls the loss bittersweet, because it made them eligible for the best new artist category this year. Kimberly says the band is "thrilled" to be representing country in the all-genre category and says they feel like "ambassadors" for the format. Plus, getting a Grammy nod crosses one thing off their mom's bucket list. When the siblings started out in music, their mother said she wanted three things: for them to eventually have a show in Vegas, to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and to earn a Grammy nomination. The Grammys air Sunday on CBS.
