The Band Perry siblings were all grins as they accepted the 2011 CMA Award for Single of the Year for the song ‘If I Die Young.’

“We appreciate you so much,” said Kimberly Perry, dressed in a fancy white gown as she waved at the crowd and her brothers, both wearing dark suits, stood on each side of her. “We love you. Thank you so much!”

Reid and Neil Perry joined their sister in thanking their fans, their record label and country radio for believing in them and making the song a hit.

The 2011 CMA Award is only the latest kudo given to the band and their No. 1 song. The video for the song, directed by David McClister, was CMT’s USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year award.

Other nominees for the 2011 CMA Award honor Single of the Year included ‘A Little Bit Stronger’ by Sara Evans (which she performed soon after the Band Perry accepted their award), ‘Colder Weather’ by Zac Brown Band, ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ by Jason Aldean with Kelly Clarkson, and ‘Honey Bee’ by Blake Shelton.
