The Band Perry Takes ‘Vocal Group of the Year’ at 2014 ACM Awards
The Band Perry will fly home with the award for ‘Vocal Group of the Year’ from the 2014 ACMs. The sibling group appeared genuinely thrilled to win the category, which included top-notch artists like Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band and Eli Young Band.
All three siblings were humble and appreciative in receiving the award, presented by David Nail and Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O’Dell. Neil Perry began the acceptance speech, thanking the ACMs as well as the group’s hardworking label and team.
Lead singer Kimberly Perry then stepped up to the mic and called the win “a mountaintop moment” in the band’s history, noting that the trio had started at the “bottom of the mountain” 15 years ago. She went on to recount some encouraging advice her grandfather gave them in those times of struggle, saying, “this ain’t no hill for a climber.”
“We accept this for the climbers,” Kimberly Perry said.
This is the group’s first ACM Award since 2010 — their third overall.
