The Band Perry took home its first Grammy Award for the Best Country Duo/Group Performance. The trio was honored for its rendition of the Glen Campbell classic, "Gentle on My Mind," a song they actually performed on the Grammy stage three years ago with Campbell as part of a tribute to the legendary artist. The trio was then asked to record the song for the James Keach-directed documentary "Glen Campbell...I'll Be Me."

"Winning a Grammy Award is not only an honor, but it's completely life changing," The Band Perry said. "It has come full circle since we played this song on the Grammy Awards three years ago with Glen Campbell, and if you would have told us then that we would record his song and win an award for it we wouldn't have believed it. We want to send a big thanks to everyone that has helped us along the way including our incredible fans."

There was no resting for the reigning ACM Vocal Group of the Year, which made appearances at the Billboard Power 100 party as curators for the third annual Grammy Amplifier Program and the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year event before flying to Texas to play a concert at the Rodeo Austin Gala. The Perry siblings returned to Los Angeles Sunday just in time for the Grammy Awards ceremony.

In other news, Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry will perform as part of "Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life - An All-Star Grammy Salute." They will share the stage with some of music's finest. The show will tape Feb. 10 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and air Monday, Feb. 16 (9-11 p.m.), on CBS.
