python strings and {} in Tkinter entry widgets

I have some code that pulls a value from a database.  In this case, it is three space delimited words.  When I display the value in a Tkinter.Entry widget, the text has curly braces around it, even when there are none in the surrounding the text in the database. 

Is this normal, and how do I prevent it or remove them correctly before displaying the text in the Entry widget?
