The Band Perry Celebrates Fourth #1 with “DONE.”

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!

Congratulations, TBP!

‘Reba McEntire: All The Women I Am’ Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit

assets-images-13-08-Reba_CMHOFExhibit

Reba McEntire.

Her name is synonymous with country music and no one is more deserving of the “Queen of Country” title.

Besides being country royalty, Reba is a star in all entertainment genres: television, Broadway, film… she does it all. Not to mention, she’s also a very successful businesswoman.

That being said, it is only fitting that Reba be honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum with her very own exhibit!

As you may know, the exhibit opened earlier this month. It is entitled “Reba: All The Women I Am” and displays memorabilia from her iconic life and career. Awards, performance clothes, childhood achievements, personal possessions, photographs, videos, etc… Reba shared it all and it is on display!

The exhibit runs through June 8, 2014. This is something no fan wants to miss!

Congratulations to Reba on this honor and an incomparable career!

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.

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.

The Band Perry takes over Canada

The Band Perry.

Fans of The Band Perry couldn’t get enough of their favorite band this weekend when the superstar sibling trio – Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry – played to over 28,000 ecstatic fans.  The show at the Boots and Hearts Festival in Bowmanville, Ontario at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park marks The Band Perry’s largest Canadian audience to date.

“The energy coming from the crowd bordered on frenzy, we could have played the entire night fueled by that kind of excitement,” says Reid Perry.
 “There’s this crazy power that comes from THAT many people all singing the same songs and moving in the same way. We are still reeling and can’t wait to be back north of the border”  says Neil Perry.
At one point during the show the crowd swelled so much that lead singer, Kimberly Perry, suffered a large abrasion and bruise on her leg from the rack located between the band and its fans.  Taking everything in stride, Kimberly never missed a beat and with her brothers finished the show; despite one of her favorite performance dresses being thrashed in the excitement.  She then picked up the pieces of the torn dress and threw them into the frenzied crowd.
“It all happened so quickly that I didn’t even realize that my leg had been hurt.  I just noticed the rip in my dress and saw that part of it was just hanging by a thread so I ripped off the rest and tossed it out into the crowd.  It was one of those sweaty, primitive stage moments I live for,” said Kimberly.
This was one of the first Canadian audiences that The Band Perry has performed for since their tour with Keith Urban in 2010 and since celebrating their second consecutive #1 single in Canada with “DONE.” The Band Perry is about to make a BIG announcement in the near future.

EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Joel Crouse

We had the chance to speak to up-and-comer Joel Crouse before his birthday show with Taylor Swift in Toronto. It just so happened that Joel, a singer-songwriter with Show Dog Universal in Nashville, turned 21 while here in Canada. It’s a big birthday for Americans – as 21 is the legal drinking age in the United States (it’s 18 or 19 in Canada depending on the province). After joking about how he can finally go out on the town without having to perform at the venues to get in, we discussed what it’s really like opening for a superstar as big as Taylor, what he thinks about Canadian country music fans, and his debut single “If You Want Some.”

Joel is a fun guy with a great voice. Get to know Joel in our second interview with the rising young star. He’ll be releasing a full length album with Show Dog Universal later this year – and reveals a few details about it with us!

Check out our exclusive interview with Joel Crouse below and don’t forget to tell us what you think!
