Pro Tools grid help?

I'm working on a song that is at 88.5 bpm, imported it into pt, set the tempo to 88.5 and tried to start grid editing. For some reason I can't get the grid to line up with the song correctly.

Can anyone offer some advice? I feel like I'm missing something obvious because normally when I import a song, PT automatically finds the bpm and it it is already lined up to the grid.

Make sure you get the first down beat to line up on a bar. Preferably bar 1, 5, 9.....

If that doesn't work just click "Apple+I" (Identify Beat). Mark the first downbeat as bar 1.

make sure your time line is set to beats and bars, if its on mins and secs then the grid will default to non music related values
