Country music’s hot trio the Band Perry won another accolade for their smash hit and No. 1 single ‘If I Die Young.’ This time it was for CMT’s USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year for the song’s moving music video, directed by David McClister.

Older brother Reid Perry — confidently rocking very fitted leather pants — was the first to take the mic, thanking video director McClister for “bringing this video to life.” Neil Perry followed saying the rhetorical “and where would we be without out fans” clause.

Kimberly thanked all those who made their success possible. “It takes a village to raise an artist,” she humbly pointed out after thanking the audience and their fans. The Band Perry beat out male newcomers Lee Brice, rock-turned-country singer Aaron Lewis and Jerrod Niemann, as well as duo Thompson Square.

This was the second time the siblings took the CMT stage tonight. Earlier in the night, the trio performed their newest hit, ‘You Lie.’ Congrats to the Band Perry!
