As anticipation builds for their Republic Nashville release on April 2, The Band Perry, reaches two major RIAA sales accolades. The sophomore project's lead single, "Better Dig Two," has been certified GOLD - selling over 700,000 - and marks their fastest-rising single to date at Country radio, Top 10-and-climbing. Additionally, "You Lie" - from their platinum-plus-selling, self-titled debut album - has now sold over one million copies, achieving PLATINUM status.
Throughout the spring, the family band will perform as special guests on Rascal Flatts' CHANGED TOUR. Their new show, which gives fans a preview of the upcoming music, will make stops this weekend in Sioux City, IA (1/17); Tulsa, OK (1/18) and Wichita, KS (1/19).
The Band Perry - comprised of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry - combines classic Country with an eclectic infusion of Rock, Gospel and Soul that is rounded out by perfect three-part harmonies. The sibling trio's latest offering, the Top 10-and-climbing "Better Dig Two," has sold over 650,000 downloads and is the fastest-rising single of their career. On April 2, the band will release their sophomore album on Republic Nashville. The Band Perry is currently on the road as special guests of the Rascal Flatts' Changed Tour.
Since signing to Republic Nashville in 2009, The Band Perry has quickly catapulted into the mainstream, in part, due to the success of their platinum, self-titled debut album. Now approaching sales of 1.5 million, the project produced two Gold-certified hits - #1 "All Your Life" and "You Lie" - as well as the Quadruple-Platinum, "If I Die Young," which took the #1 position on both Country and AC charts. The milestones helped establish TBP in 2011 as both ACM and CMA New Artist of the Year and CMT Music Award Breakthrough Video of the Year as well as the "Best New Live Act" in category sponsored by Nationwide Insurance. They also took home the CMA Single of the Year and Kimberly Perry was honored with Song of the Year, for penning "If I Die Young." TBP has previously garnered GRAMMY, TEEN CHOICE, AMA, ACA and Billboard Music Award nominations. For more on The Band Perry, visit thebandperry.com and "join the family" at thefansperry.com.
