The Band Perry performing in Austin, Texas


The Band Perry performing at ACL Live in Austin, Texas on December 17, 2015. Band members include Kimberly Perry, Reid Perry and Neil Perry.
Merging country, pop, and rock elements into a sharp contemporary sound, THE BAND PERRY is comprised of siblings Kimberly Perry (lead vocals, guitar, and piano), Reid Perry (bass guitar), and Neil Perry (drums, mandolin, and accordion). The group officially formed in the summer of 2005, although the siblings had been singing together at home and in various configurations and bands since their childhood years in Mobile, Alabama.

The Band Perry's eponymous full-length debut was one of the big country hits of 2010, thanks to the number one singles "If I Die Young" and "All Your Life," plus the Top Ten single "You Lie." These singles kept the Band Perry on the charts into 2012, by which time the trio was attempting to record a second album with new producer Rick Rubin. During the sessions, they abandoned Rubin for producer Dann Huff, who helmed the finished album, Pioneer, which appeared in April of 2013 preceded by the number one single "Better Dig Two" and "Done." The album topped the country charts, hit number two on the Billboard 200, and was supported by months of touring throughout North America and Western Europe. The following year, their cover of John Hartford's "Gentle on My Mind," a song that had won Glen Campbell two Grammys in 1968, was featured on the soundtrack for the documentary film Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me. The Band Perry version went on to win a Grammy in 2015 for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. (Source: ACL Live)
