The Band Perry Bobbleheads Commemorate Siblings’ Success
The Band Perry returned home last week to enjoy America's favorite pastime and raise some dough for the United Way. Thursday (June 28), the sibling trio took in a baseball game in their hometown of Greeneville, Tenn., and played a private, acoustic concert for 200 guests prior to the first pitch.
"We love small towns and we especially love our small town," Kimberly Perry says. "Performing for our friends and neighbors and raising money for United Way at the same time meant a lot to us."
To celebrate the return of the hometown heroes, the team -- which is a Rookie-level affiliate of the Houston Astros -- created custom bobbleheads (pictured above) of the threesome. Each attendees received their own, and one dollar of each ticket sold benefited the United Way.
The trio even had the chance to take the field, throwing out the game's first pitch. After that, they chatted it up with the team's General Manager David Lane, and owner Scott Niswonger.
"It was an honor to spend time with Mr. Niswonger and Mr. Lane and be a part of such a special evening in the community," Reid Perry recalls.
"We were excited about throwing out the first pitch at the game!" adds Neil Perry. "We love sports and even though we are baseball rookies we had a blast on the field with the professionals."
The Band Perry didn't get to spend a lot time at home. After the game, they were back on the bus and headed out on tour with Brad Paisley. They're headed to Canada next, stopping in Calgary on July 14. See their full concert schedule here.
