Readers of MusicRow magazine voted, bestowing honors for Breakthrough Artist on The Band Perry. MusicRow execs caught up with the group at a recent gig at Nashville�â�€�™s Hard Rock Cafe to present their plaques.

Following years of hard work, �â�€�œIf I Die Young�â�€� was the major hit that propelled the trio made up of siblings Neil, Reid and Kimberly Perry to the forefront of country music�â�€�™s rising class. The track resonated with fans to the tune of two million downloads. Since its release, the group has earned two ACM Awards, a CMT Award, and Grammy and CMA nominations. Their self-titled debut album, created under the direction of producers Nathan Chapman and Paul Worley, has sold almost 600,000 copies to date.
�â�€�œWe always say, the three of us can only walk through open doors,�â�€� said Kimberly, who particularly acknowledged MusicRow�â�€�™s Country Breakout Chart. �â�€�œAll the MusicRow stations have been so gracious, so thank you guys.�â�€�
�â�€�œLike in most success stories, there are no short cuts,�â�€� explains Republic Nashville Pres. Jimmy Harnen. �â�€�œThe Band Perry has seen a million faces and rocked them all! Everyone on the team worked passionately and tirelessly, and had a ton of fun doing it. When you add into the mix that Kimberly, Neil and Reid are three of the nicest and most talented people you will ever meet, it�â�€�™s unstoppable.�â�€�
