Video: The Band Perry Rocks American Idol Stage

316101_584491028248806_2102866661_n

The Band Perry rocked the stage last night during the American Idol finale.

The trio was joined by Top 5 finalist and country girl, Janelle Arthur, to sing their current single, “Done.” They lit up the stage with electrifying energy, fun, and even some head banging. The Band Perry sure does know how to do a performance! And Janelle fit right in.

If you missed the performance, check out the video below. It was one of my favorites of the night!

“Done” is TBP’s second single off of their new album, Pioneer! I’ve probably mentioned how much I love the album, but I’ll say it again. A must buy for your country music list!

10 songs for Mother’s Day

Carrie Underwood and her mom.

Us here at Keepin’ it Country want to wish all the moms out there a happy Mother’s Day! Just in case you’re looking for a playlist of songs to help celebrate the weekend with your Mom, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite country songs about moms. Take a listen to our list below and let us know what YOUR picks are for mother’s day.

MAMA’S SONG – CARRIE UNDERWOOD

A personal song written by Carrie herself to her mom is our first pick for our Mother’s Day playlist. The music video features Carrie and her real life mom, as pictured to the side of this post, on her wedding day as she tells her mom that she doesn’t need to worry about her daughter, because she learned from her. “Mama’s Song” was the fourth single from Carrie’s “Play On” album, which was co-written by Carrie with Luke Laird, Kara DioGuardi, and Marti Frederikson. BONUS: The video also features Carrie’s real-life husband, Mike Fisher.

The Band Perry’s “Pioneer” Goes To No. 1

0508-copy

 

The Band Perry topped the Billboard Country Chart this week with their sophomore album, Pioneer. With 129,000 units sold, the sibling trio also landed in second place on the Billboard 200 chart and were just shy of Justin Timberlake’s sales of The 20/20 Experience by 10,000 copies.

TBP were ecstatic and grateful to hear the big news as they took to Facebook & Twitter:

Wow!!! #Pioneer debuts at #1 Top Country Album AND #2 @Billboard 200!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

The album’s lead single, “Better Dig Two,” hit number one earlier this year. On track for seemingly similar success is the current single, “Done,” which jumped from 20 to 7 on the Country Digital Sales chart.

If you have not already, make sure you buy your copy of Pioneer! We promise you will not be disappointed.

TBP will also be hitting the road this summer with Rascal Flatts and Cassadee Pope. That is a show you do not want to miss! Visit www.thebandperry.com for more info and tour dates.

Congratulations to The Band Perry! We are huge fans ourselves and are very excited for them.

The Band Perry get their own Gigi Cupcakes

The Band Perry.

In true “Pioneer” fashion, The Band Perry pushes the envelope once more and has become the first recording artists to have a Gigi’s cupcake named after them. The new cupcake called, VERY PERRY CHOCOLATE CHERRY, was inspired by The Band Perry’s new music, a song in particular called “I’m A Keeper,” from the band’s iTunes Country chart topping CD, “Pioneer.”

How cool would it be to have a cupcake named after you? Kimberly Perry knew exactly what flavor it would have to be:

“When we heard that we might have a Gigi’s cupcake named after us we knew right away what the flavor would be. There is a song on our new album that has a line in it that says, ‘I’m gonna change my name to Cherry….,’ so we decided that the cupcake had to be some kind of a cherry cupcake.”

Neil added with a big smile:

“When Gigi brought the cupcakes by for uas to taste them, she provided two cherry versions for us to sample and then offer our opinions on. I really couldn’t tell after trying the first one, so I had to eat several just to make sure. You know, quality control and all.”

Reid Perry explains how the final product came to be:

“We decided to take both versions of the cherry cupcakes and combine them. What came out of that is a cherry batter cake, with chunks of cherry topped with chocolate icing, and a cherry on top. They are delicious. So delicious, that I will be running the stairs after all of our shows now!”

Gigi’s will be selling VERY PERRY CHOCOLATE CHERRY two days a week in all of their stores nationwide, but that’s not the only treat for patrons. Cupcake lovers can enjoy some great music by The Band Perry while they are visiting Gigi’s and they can purchase the new CD “Pioneer” right there in the Gigi’s store.

Rascal Flatts, one of the top selling touring acts in country music today having sold over seven million concert tickets in the last 10 years, will embark on a brand new tour this summer, Farmers Insurance Presents Rascal Flatts “Live & Loud.” The 34-city run will launch on Friday, May 31 in Jones Beach, New York at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre with special guests The Band Perry and 2012’s The Voice winner Cassadee Pope.

Rascal Flatts wrapped their “Changed Tour” earlier this month and ended 2012 having played before one million fans.  They are the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade and with the #1 debut of their latest album, CHANGED, they have the distinction of being one of only four acts to have seven consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart during the Soundscan era.  Since their musical debut in 2000, the band has sold over 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads and delivered 14 #1 singles to the top of the charts.  Rascal Flatts is the most awarded Country group of the past decade, earning over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People’s Choice Awards and more.

The Band Perry – comprised of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry –combines classic Country with an eclectic infusion of Rock and Soul that is rounded out by perfect three-part harmonies. The sibling trio’s latest offering “Better Dig Two,” garnered the family band a multi-week #1 and their third ascend to the top of the charts. The lead single has been certified platinum for sales of over one million copies and marks the fastest-rising of their career. They will release their sophomore album, PIONEER, on April 2.
At just 23, Cassadee Pope’s unique vocals and powerful performances stole the national spotlight during Season 3 of “The Voice.”  The reigning star of the NBC hit primetime show wowed from the start with offers from all four judges during the blind auditions before accepting with Team Blake (Shelton). The talented singer/songwriter has already appeared on Today, Live! With Kelly & Michael, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and performed with Train on New Year’s Eve With Carson Daily. She will release new, original music later this spring.
