2016 I PERFORMANCE
Grammy® Award-winning sibling trio The Band Perry have proven an unstoppable presence in music, matching their major critical acclaim with massive mainstream success. Within just years of making their platinum-selling self-titled debut, frontwoman Kimberly Perry and her brothers Reid and Neil have already shown the history-defying power of their colossal appeal, playing sold out shows around the world.
Throughout 2014, The Band Perry built on that momentum by making appearances on major TV and award shows, became ACM Vocal Group of the Year, picked up a CMT Award for their “DONE.” video, and marked their first USO tour stop with a performance for American troops at Royal Air Force Lakenheath in the United Kingdom. Later in the year, The Band Perry released a spirited rendition of country legend Glen Campbell’s “Gentle On My Mind” (featured on the soundtrack to the James Keach-directed documentary Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me) and – in February 2015 – won the Grammy® Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Having also earned multiple awards from the likes of The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, the American Country Awards, and the Academy of Country Music, The Band Perry have received multiple nominations from the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards, and The American Country Countdown Awards as well.
Along with introducing the group as a dynamic new force in music, 2010’s The Band Perry delivered five hit singles: the sextuple-platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young” (whose video’s now Vevo-certified for reaching 100 million plays), the platinum-selling “You Lie” and “All Your Life” (a #1 single), “Hip to My Heart,” and the gold-certified “Postcard from Paris.” For their gold-certified 2013 follow-up Pioneer, The Band Perry delved deeper into an edgy, rock-and-roll-inspired sound while staying true to their Southern roots, offering up the platinum-selling #1 singles “Better Dig Two” and “DONE.” (a first for Reid and Neil as songwriters) as well as smash hits “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw.” Kicking off the WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR in late 2013, the trio quickly established themselves as an incendiary live act and global powerhouse, playing hundreds of venues from Seattle to Sweden.
With their recent honors including being named ambassadors for Teen Cancer America (a charity founded by The Who’s Roger Daltrey), The Band Perry are currently gearing up for the release of their third studio album.
