The Band Perry have been tapped to kick off the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic. Before No. 6 Arkansas takes on No. 8 Kansas State, the sibling trio will perform the national anthem for the sold-out crowd at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

"Cowboys Stadium is one of the biggest and best venues in the entire world when it comes to country music," says lead singer Kimberly Perry. "We are excited and honored to be singing our country's anthem on such a national stage."

The AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic will air live on FOX, January 6 at 8:00 PM ET.

The Band Perry will ring in 2012 with a performance on 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve' TV special. Following their Cotton Bowl performance, they'll gear up for a calendar full of tour dates, both as headliners and as an opening act on Brad Paisley's Camobunga! 2012 World tour. The siblings will take a break from the road in February to attend the 54th annual Grammy Awards, where they're up for the coveted Best New Artist honors.
