The Band Perry played to a full house last night at the historic Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville, TN. When tickets went on sale last fall, the show sold out in a staggering twenty minutes, a first for the Republic Nashville breakout trio! Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry were also the first artists to perform on the recently renovated stage at the legendary venue.
“We are so excited to have performed our first headlining show in Nashville at the Ryman Auditorium! Country music’s ‘mother church’ was in need of some loving attention, so a brand new stage has just been added,” says Kimberly Perry. “We had the honor of being the very first act to perform on it. The evening was even better than we imagined.”
The 2012 ACM Vocal Group of the Year contenders shared a few new songs as well as their Gold-certified #1 single, “All Your Life;” their Triple-Platinum, #1 smash, "If I Die Young" and the Gold-certified “You Lie” from their Platinum Republic Nashville debut album.
Not only did last night’s show in Music City sell out in a matter of minutes, their show last Saturday night (2/18), at Billy Bob’s Texas in Ft. Worth, also sold out in advance – an unprecedented accomplishment for a new act. With more than sixteen thousand in attendance, the sibling trio also performed to a packed venue at the San Antonio Stock Show last Wednesday (2/15).
“It’s so amazing that our fans appreciate what we do live and support us by coming to hear us play,” says Reid Perry.
“We have been so blessed in our career since we began and to know our fans continue to support our music is so gratifying,” says Neil Perry.
