The Band Perry
Press Release – Nashville, Tennessee – The Band Perry celebrated their first #1 single with “If I Die Young,” written by Kimberly Perry, at a BMI-hosted soirée earlier this week in Nashville. In addition to reaching the top of the charts, the single was also certified Platinum by the RIAA for sales exceeding one million copies.
BMI, Country Radio Broadcasters, Country Music Association and Country Aircheck made presentations in celebration of the accolade while Avenue Bank donated $250 to the Greeneville Food Bank, a charity selected by The Band Perry. Republic Nashville also honored the sibling trio for their accomplishment, which earned the inaugural #1 for the label as well.
Calling all “BSer’s” Blake Shelton wants you to get ready for some fun and, you guessed it…a lot more BS in 2011. Why? Because he certainly is…
2010 was a great year for Shelton and the reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year can’t think of a better way to kick-off 2011 than with his fans. The “All About Tonight” tour began last October and was the first headlining experience for Blake.
“I’m excited to get back out there and perform for my fans. They made last year the best year of my life and I hope to make each night of this tour one of the most memorable nights of their lives. I’m hoping this tour will prepare me for co-hosting the ACM Awards with the queen of country music, Reba. There’s no better practice as my fans are always great at keeping me on my toes.”
Joining Shelton out on the road are Easton Corbin, Steel Magnolia, The Band Perry and Chris Young. The tour will visit 20 cities from now until early May.
