The Band Perry nails the #1 spot on the Billboard Country Chart this week with "Better Dig Two," the fastest-rising song and third chart-topper of their career. The bold lead single has sold nearly one million copies and provides a Stellar preview of the sibling trio's Republic Nashville release on April 2. As excitement escalates, Rolling Stone raves, "[on 'Better Dig Two'] the family country band shifts from subdued hand claps and banjo finger-picking to explosive choruses flush with huge guitar crashes and Kimberly Perry's searing hot siren calls." Entertainment Weekly lists the upcoming project as one of the "12 Albums We Can't Wait For." "We are thrilled that our fans and country radio love 'Better Dig Two' as much as we did when we first heard it! It's the ultimate love song. A true Appalachian sentiment with a definitive 'until death do us part' message," says Kimberly Perry. "We knew that our fans were embracing 'Better Dig Two' because we could see it at our live shows, the movement and dancing among the crowd when we play this song is like no other," says Reid Perry. "Whenever I strike the first note of the intro to this song we can feel the excitement among the audience. It's fun to perform live and we are so happy our fans have made this our third #1 single," says Neil Perry. "Congratulations to Kimberly, Neil and Reid on their third #1 single with 'Better Dig Two!' It's so great seeing the lead single off their sophomore album go #1 in just 15 weeks," says Jimmy Harnen, Republic Nashville President & Big Machine Label Group EVP.
