The Band Perry Live in Concert!

We recently had the opportunity to see one of our favorite country bands in concert: The Band Perry!  We have mentioned them a few times on our blog and featured their vintage-inspired videos. During the past year we've played their CD countless times and downloaded their songs into the music player on our Kindle.
After learning that The Band Perry would be playing near us, we were all anticipation until the show started.  From beginning to end, it was a fantastic show.  Before The Band Perry came on stage, a sound clip played what has become their slogan of sorts: "Daddy rocked us to sleep with the Rolling Stones; Mama woke us up with Loretta Lynn. So we get it honest...We're The Band Perry and we play country music."   The concert backed up their declaration and proved that they are an authentic addition to the country music world. 
The playlist for the night included many of the songs from their self-titled CD released last year. They also introduced some new music, which made us hungry for their next CD whenever it is released.  The familial harmonies between Kimberly, Reid, and Nick were showcased during an acoustic portion of the show, during which they performed a melody of famous American/rock songs, as well as a rendition of Amazing Grace
Kimberly described herself as the "spitfire" of the group. She brought a ton of energy to the stage.  Her true passion for music and songwriting shined through in her performance.  Unlike many stars today, Kimberly seemed approachable and real with an honest love for country music. 
Together The Band Perry exhibits incredible talent, and the "x factor."  Their most popular single to date, If I Die Young, just went Triple Platinum. They are currently nominated for 5 CMAs and 3 AMAs.  We are hoping they claim a few victories and continue to play their country music. 
Don't miss their performance this coming up Tuesday, October 18th on the Dancing with the Stars results show on ABC!
