(AUDIO) The Band Perry Ain't Too Proud To Beg For A CMA Nomination

September 8, 2013

There’s a good possibility that when the final nominees for this year’s CMA Awards are announced on Tuesday that The Band Perry’s name will appear on the list at least a couple of times, but Kimberly says very humbly, “Who knows? I mean they’re just bad odds.” She explains that there is just so much good music and so many great groups out these days and that, “Of course, group nomination would be a really coveted one for us but man, I also feel like it’s one of the stiffest competitions in the whole batch.” Neil is also intrigued by the New Artist category because he says, “Again, there’s been like a great number of new artists coming out with Hunter Hayes, and Florida Georgia Line …all those acts.” Whatever happens on Tuesday with the nominations, Kimberly laughs and says, “The best thing is, we ain’t too proud to beg.”

Metaphorically, that sense of newness and stepping out of his comfort zone is part of why Justin thought Off the Beaten Path was a perfect title for this new album, but also he says, literally, “That’s where I love to be: hunting, fishing, outdoors, all that stuff.” The album features Justin’s top five single, “Point At You,” and he says, “I’m really, really excited about it.”

Neil – “And it’s also interesting to see the New Artist category too ‘cause again, there’s been like a great number of new artists coming out with Hunter Hayes, and Florida Georgia Line …all those acts so..”
