Just when you thought you couldn’t love The Band Perry any more … This happens. The superstar sibling trio recently stepped up to help with funeral expenses to bury a mother and eight children who were tragically killed in a house fire in Greenville, Kentucky. Only two family members — the father, Chad J. Watson, and an 11-year-old girl — survived the fire Thursday morning.

The Perry siblings’ representatives contacted the Watson family and offered to take care of all the expenses and also offered to pay hotel expenses for family members staying near the medical center where the two surviving Watsons are being treated. A family friend stated, “I don’t know why The Band Perry reached out to the family other than they are just very gracious. The family doesn’t have any personal connection to the band before now.”
