The Band Perry to visit fans in Greeneville Aug. 6

The Band Perry will visit fans in Greeneville on Tuesday, Aug. 6.

NASHVILLE — Superstar sibling trio, The Band Perry, will return to their hometown of Greeneville, on Tuesday, Aug. 6, to meet with fans and sign copies of their heralded sophomore album “Pioneer,” which has already produced two consecutive No. 11 hit singles, “Better Dig Two” and “DONE.” This marks their first public appearance in Greeneville, since their “Pioneer” album release concert on March 31, which drew a crowd of nearly 25,000.

The signing will begin at 5 p.m., at Walmart on East Andrew Johnson Highway in Greeneville.

The Band Perry is currently celebrating its fourth No. 1 single “Done,” which made it to the top of the charts last week. “Done.” also establishes a special milestone for Reid and Neil Perry as it is their first No. 1 as songwriters.

In addition to enjoying sold-out headlining dates and most recently breaking an attendance record with an audience of 21,000 in West Fargo, N.D., The Band Perry is currently on the road with Rascal Flatts for the “Live & Loud Tour.”

Since releasing its self-titled debut album on Republic Nashville in 2010, The Band Perry has only seen success. Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Reid and Neil, the band has notched a string of hit singles, including the quadruple-platinum “If I Die Young,” which climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country and AC charts, the platinum “You Lie,” and the gold-certified Country No. 1 “All Your Life” as well as the consecutive No. 1 hits, “Better Dig Two” and “Done,” co-written by Reid and Neil, from their sophomore release “Pioneer,” which debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 2 All Genre.

The project, produced by Dann Huff, sold nearly 130,000 copies in the first week and has received acclaim from top critics across the country. The group also enjoyed sold-out headlining dates and a showering of honors, including multiple ACM, CMA, and CMT Music awards, as well as Teen Choice, AMA, ACA, Billboard Music Awards and Grammy Awards nominations — all of which has cemented the sibling trio as one of the hottest acts in recent history.
The Band Perry is currently nominated for two 2013 Teen  Choice Awards, “Choice Country Group” and “Choice Break-Up Song,” for its current hit song “Done.” The 2013 Teen Choice Awards will air on FOX on Aug. 11.
