“We were so excited to hear about our Grammy nomination, but to receive one for a song we feel so passionately about is thrilling beyond words,” said The Band Perry. “Glen Campbell is one of our heroes, and we feel so privileged to have been asked to record this iconic song of his and to be a part of this project to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s in his honor.”
One of the most dynamic acts in music today, The Band Perry has both achieved massive mainstream success and gained major critical acclaim since delivering their platinum self-titled debut. Introducing the sibling trio as a powerful new force on the country scene, 2010’s The Band Perry offered up five hit singles, including the quintuple-platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young” and other platinum hits – the #1 “All Your Life” and “You Lie” – as well as “Hip to My Heart” and “Postcard from Paris.” For the band’s gold-certified second album Pioneer, frontwoman Kimberly Perry and her younger brothers Reid and Neil delved deeper into an edgy, rock-and-roll-inspired sound while staying true to their Southern roots. Featuring the platinum #1 single “Better Dig Two” and the gold #1 “DONE.” (plus smash hits “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw”), Pioneer found The Band Perry widening their appeal and continuing to showcase their breathtaking three-part harmonies.
In recent years, The Band Perry has earned multiple awards from the likes of The Academy of Country Music, The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, and The American Country Awards. They have also received nominations from The American Music Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, and the Grammy Awards. Named Vocal Group of the Year by the ACM in 2014, the group also kicked off the WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR in late 2013 and quickly established themselves as a global powerhouse. Their latest single, a spirited rendition of Glen Campbell’s “Gentle on My Mind” also appears on the soundtrack for I’ll Be Me, a documentary about the country music legend. The band is currently at work on new music for their upcoming third album.
The WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR continues through the end of the year. For tour dates and more on TBP, visit thebandperry.com.
