LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Friday, November 11, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing congratulates the winners of the 45th annual Country Music Awards, including The Band Perry for “New Artist of the Year,” “Song of the Year” and “Single of the Year,” and Lady Antebellum for “Vocal Group of the Year.” As the official publisher of their sheet music and songbooks, Alfred toasts the accomplishments of these world-class artists and takes great pride in producing top quality licensed products for the enjoyment of their fans who play musical instruments.

The Band Perry is one of the most widely-embraced country bands to hit the music scene over the past year, garnering them this year’s CMA for “New Artist of the Year.” Their debut album The Band Perry merges sounds of country, pop, and rock, with the widely-popular triple-platinum single "If I Die Young." The song was the focus for two of the band’s other CMA wins for “Single of the Year” and “Song of the Year.” Alfred is the official publisher for sheet music editions and arrangements of the band’s self-titled album and hit single, as well as others.

Forming in 2006, Lady Antebellum has rapidly become one of the hottest country groups today. After their 2008 CMA win for “New Artist of the Year,” they have won consecutive CMAs for “Vocal Group of the Year” since 2009, including this year. Alfred is pleased to offer over a dozen original sheet music editions and arrangements of their acclaimed albums, Lady Antebellum and Need You Now, plus several of their hit singles. The band is currently on tour for their latest album Own the Night now through the summer 0f 2012.

Alfred Music Publishing additionally publishes sheet music for songs made famous by several more of last night’s winners, including Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda Party,” Kenny Chesney and Grace Potter’s “You and Tequila,” and Blake Shelton’s “Honey Bee.”
