CMT’s Next Women of Country Adds Five Artists

Next Women of Country

We can’t say enough about the fierce females who are a huge part of today’s country music. CMT echoes our sentiment, as it gives nods to five upcoming country music starlets who are on their way to striking gold (or platinum) in the genre we all know and love.

This year’s “Next Women of Country” are: Lindsay Ell, Lucy Hale, Nikki Lane, Angaleena Presley, and Natalie Stovall & the Drive. CMT chose these particular ladies for their voices, but also for their music in general. CMT coins each of these talented artists as the types of “women [who] dig deep and find the stories and the lyrics that make listeners stop and think.”

You can find out more about each of these artists by visiting NextWomen.CMT.com, or by checking out the hashtag #NextWomen on Twitter.

The Band Perry Kicks Off North American Leg of Tour

The Band Perry Tour

After recently being named one of the hardest working acts in music by Songkick.com and playing 126 shows around the world in 2013, our favorite sibling trio is on the road again.

The Band Perry will kick off the North American leg of their headlining We Are Pioneers World Tour tomorrow, Jan. 9th in Penticton, BC. Easton Corbin and Lindsay Ell will be joining the band as supporting acts.

Kimberly, Reid, and Neil wrapped up the European leg of their tour in December to much critical acclaim. Three Chords and The Truth said, “as long as artists like The Band Perry are the leading lights of new country, then evolution need not be viewed too negatively and the spirit in the title of the Pioneer album can continue to set the agenda.” As evidenced by Pioneer being on our list for “Best Albums of 2013,” we completely agree. The band is a perfect blend of country tradition and evolution, and Pioneer included some of the best work in country music in recent years.

In addition to their natural music talent and chart-topping songs, TBP are also known for their amazing and electrifying live performances. You surely do not want to miss them!

Here are the tour dates:

The Band Perry recover from power loss in concert

The Band Perry.

The Band Perry was well into their spirited set last week at Ohio State University performing their smash “All Your Life” when the generators unexpectedly blew out leaving the band in darkness.  That is until the crowd pulled out their cell phones and created enough light for the show to go on.  The superstar sibling trio followed up with their cover of “I Will Always Love You,” and shortly thereafter light returned.

“We never know what’s going to happen when we step on stage,” said Kimberly Perry.  “One show I’m throwing bits of my shredded dress into the audience, and another we’re playing under the cell phone spotlight,” says Kimberly Perry.
 
“We’ already play a cover of Queen’s ‘Fat Bottom Girls’ in our set and after last night we may need to prepare a cover of Meat Loaf’s ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light’ except ours would be called ‘Paradise by the Cellphone Light’” said Reid Perry.
 
“The OSU students definitely lit up the house in more ways than one!  They were great and they were with us all the way!” says Neil Perry.
OSU STUDENTS LIGHT THE WAY FOR THE BAND PERRY.

Pioneers are everywhere and they’re coming to find you!

Country’s favorite sibling trio, The Band Perry, has announced their first worldwide headline tour. The We Are Pioneers World Tour will kick off in Gothenburg, Sweden on November 8, 2013 and trek across Europe before the band returns home to play throughout North America.

The siblings are pumped! “We live to play. In our minds everything we do – writing, recording, interviews, appearances – is the means to the live end. To fully and totally understand our band, you have to see us live. It’s the three of us in our element, our living room, our therapy session, our recess. We can’t wait to bring WE ARE PIONEERS to the world,” said Kimberly Perry.

“We are very fortunate that we get to walk on stage and do what we love to do – and it’s our fans that have given us that opportunity. We sincerely appreciate each and every one of them, and we are looking forward to meeting new people across the world and making The Fans Perry a global community,” added Reid Perry.
