The Band Perry, composed of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry, quickly catapulted into the mainstream with the success of their Quadruple-Platinum breakout hit “If I Die Young.” In 2011, the tune took the #1 position on both Country and Adult Contemporary charts and earned Country Music Association Awards’ Single and Song of the Year for 2011, with the band also taking the honors of New Vocal Group or Duo of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Their success continued with Platinum-certified “You Lie” and the Gold-certified #1 smash “All Your Life.” The Band Perry has won multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Music Awards as well as GRAMMY®, Teen Choice, AMA, ACA and Billboard Music Award nominations. Their highly anticipated sophomore album, PIONEER, will be released on April 2, and the lead single, “Better Dig Two,” has already topped the Billboard Country Chart and marks their third #1 song on Country radio. The song is also the fastest-rising of their career and has sold over 1,000,000 copies. On the heels of this success, The Band Perry is nominated for Vocal Group of the Year and will perform at the “48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards,” which will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Sunday, April 7 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.
