Every once in a while a band or artist comes along that you know is something special and is going to do big things in music. When The Band Perry first came onto the scene, it was pretty evident that they would be one of those bands and they have found success after success!
The sibling trio – Kimberly, Reid, & Neil Perry – celebrated their fourth number one song on Monday for their hit single, “DONE.” The song is high energy, sassy, in your face with a perfect rockin’ country sound. You really can’t help but want to wail along with the radio.
The number one is an especially big milestone for brothers Reid and Neil. “DONE.” is their first number one as songwriters. The track was co-written with John Davidson and Jacob Bryant. The trio met John and Jacob when they opened for TBP at some of their shows in the UK. A relationship was formed and co-writing magic was born. “DONE.” is John & Jacob’s first cut as songwriters. Talk about a good start!
BMI, SESAC, Red Light Management, WME, BMLG and Major Bob Music hosted a party at the historic Bridge Building in downtown Nashville to honor The Band Perry and co-writers John & Jacob this week.
In addition to the plethora of #1 awards presented to the writers and The Band Perry by The CMA, Country Radio Broadcasters, BMI, SESAC and Major Bob Music, Republic Nashville also presented the band with a career milestone plaque commemorating more than TEN MILLION downloads and over TWO MILLON records sold in just four years.
“10 million plus paid downloads and over two million albums sold in less than four years is such an amazing success story!” said Republic Nashville President/BMLG EVP Jimmy Harnen. “Back to back #1 singles, # 1 most added on their brand new single and the announcement of a World Tour all screams this is the year of The Band Perry!”
The Band Perry’s new single, “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely,” was also the most added at country radio this week, its first week.
I think Mr. Harnen said it best… it is the year of The Band Perry!
