The Band Perry Announce First Headlining Tour
The sibling trio's 75-date trek, dubbed the Purveyors of Performance Tour, includes headlining shows, as well as support dates with Keith Urban and Reba McEntire, and soon-to-be-announced dates with "one of country music's major touring forces," according to a statement released by the band.
"It has always been our dream to play country music," the band explains. "We've been on the road as a family band for thirteen years and experienced the intimacy of theaters, the energy of county fairs and the joy of connecting with new faces as we support these amazing artists at arenas and amphitheaters. Artists like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Reba were the ones who originally inspired us to dream big ... now they have helped our dreams come true. We couldn't be more grateful to them or excited about the future."
Approaching the end of their tour with Tim McGraw, the Band Perry praised the singer for his graciousness on the road. "Tim McGraw is a gentleman, a gracious host and the epitome of a mega-star -- we have learned so much from him," they said in their statement about the tour.
The day before their Purveyors of Performance Tour kicks off, you can catch the Band Perry on the annual ABC TV special, 'CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock,' on August 14, and then on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' on August 17.
The trio's self-titled debut has launched smash singles 'If I Die Young' and 'You Lie,' and is currently on track to go platinum by the year's end, achieving gold status just four months after its October 2010 release.
