The Band Perry released their self-titled debut album in October 2010 on Republic Nashville - just four months later, it was certified Gold. The family trio's "modern throwback" style combines classic Country with an eclectic infusion of Rock, Gospel and Soul. As songwriters and musicians, their sound is distinct and rounded out by the rare magic of perfect three-part harmonies. Their first single, the up-tempo "Hip To My Heart" was a Top 20 hit, followed by the inspiring, reflective "If I Die Young," reached #1, was certified Platinum and racked up over 18 million views on YouTube. The Band Perry recently revealed their third single, "You Lie." The sassy anthem of a woman scorned features wordplay that proves the pen is mightier than the sword. "You Lie" is TBP's fastest-climbing radio single to date. Having previously earned CMA and Grammy nominations, the Band Perry recently earned their first ACM Awards (for New Artist of the Year and New Duo or Group of the Year). They are currently on the road with Tim McGraw's Emotional Traffic Tour.
