It’s the little song that keeps on going. The Band Perry‘s cross-over hit “If I Die Young” has now been certified by the RIAA as four times platinum for selling over 4 million digital copies of the single alone. The single is the only one from a debut album to be awarded that in 18 months. “If I Die Young” has also sold more than any other country music single in the last 18 months.
Kimberly Perry, the lead singer in the band with her brothers, wrote the song on her own. She was awarded the 2011 CMA Song Of The Year award at last year’s award show.
The trio should have even bigger things coming their way this year. They’re nominated for ACM Group Of The Year and they’re set to host the 2012 GAC New Artist Of The Year special. The special focuses on this year’s nominees for the New Artist Of The Year at the April 1st award show.
