Tuesday, December 14, 2010 – The Band Perry's self-penned, Grammy-nominated single, If I Die Young, was certified Platinum by the RIAA for sales exceeding 1 million.

The song was nominated for a Grammy and also was number one on the country charts.

The Band Perry will next perform the song on ABC's The View on Wednesday, Dec. 15.
