The Band Perry walked away with their very first Grammy award on Sunday in Los Angeles. The trio won Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Gentle On My Mind,” their rendition of the Glen Campbell hit which was part of his documentary, I’ll Be Me.
Kimberly and Neil Perry told reporters that winning this coveted award was “life-changing.”
After the win, The Band Perry tweeted, “WHAAAAT… WE JUST WON A GRAMMY!!! So honored, we’ll never forget this moment! @TheGRAMMYs #GentleOnMyMind”
Eric Church doesn’t know which is more exciting — having nominations in four categories at Sunday’s Grammy Awards or getting a chance to perform live during the broadcast.
Eric says that getting to perform at the Grammys is a dream come true.
Eric is up for Best Country Album for The Outsiders, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for “Give Me Back My Hometown” and Best Country Duo/Group Performance with Keith Urban for Keith’s “Raise ‘Em Up.”
The 57th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS beginning a 8 p.m. ET.
Kenny Chesney follows up his back-to-back Number One hits, “American Kids” and “Til It’s Gone,” with “Wild Child,” featuring Grace Potter. Kenny co-wrote the song, which he says paints women in a positive light.
Kenny kicks off his The Big Revival tour with two sold-out shows at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on March 26th and 27th.
Gluten-free people want NBC to pull their NASCAR ad which features Nick Offerman talking about how America has gone soft and saying, “When our idea of danger is eating gluten, there’s trouble afoot.” The ad debuted last week but was featured heavily during the Super Bowl.
A man who calls himself “Gluten Dude” started a petition requesting the commercial be removed and has already gathered nearly 18,000 signatures. The petition states, “NBC is running a Super Bowl ad that makes fun of those who are gluten-free. It implies that we’re soft…we’re weak…we’re part of America’s problem. When all we’re trying to do is manage our disease. Celiac can be a true pain. The media is not helping and this petition is get NBC to see the light of day. I think about all of the gluten-free children getting bullied for being “different”, when all they want to do is feel better and fit in. I think about all of the people who have gotten sick at restaurants because the kitchen and/or the staff do not take us seriously. I think about all of those walking around undiagnosed and suffering because they only listen to what is in the media. I think about all of the people in the past who have died prematurely when going gluten-free MAY have been their saving grace. This petition is for them.”
