of the most dynamic acts in music today, The Band Perry has both
achieved massive mainstream success and gained major critical acclaim
since delivering their platinum self-titled debut. Introducing the
sibling trio as a powerful new force on the country scene, 2010’s The Band Perry offered
up five hit singles, including the quintuple-platinum chart-topper “If I
Die Young” and other platinum hits – the #1 “All Your Life” and “You
Lie” – as well as “Hip to My Heart” and “Postcard from Paris.” For the
band’s gold-certified second album Pioneer, frontwoman Kimberly
Perry and her younger brothers Reid and Neil delved deeper into an edgy,
rock-and-roll-inspired sound while staying true to their Southern
roots. Featuring the platinum #1 single “Better Dig Two” and the gold #1
“DONE.” (plus smash hits “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw”), Pioneer found The Band Perry widening their appeal and continuing to showcase their breathtaking three-part harmonies.
recent years, The Band Perry has earned multiple awards from the likes
of The Academy of Country Music, The Country Music Association, CMT
Music Awards, and The American Country Awards. They have also received
nominations from The American Music Awards, The Billboard Music Awards,
and the Grammy Awards. Named Vocal Group of the Year by the ACM in 2014,
the group also kicked off the WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR in late 2013
and quickly established themselves as a global powerhouse. Their latest
single, a spirited rendition of Glen Campbell’s “Gentle on My Mind” also
appears on the soundtrack for I’ll Be Me, a documentary about the country music legend. The band is currently at work on new music for their upcoming third album.
