The Band Perry Plays Free Benefit Show for Their Hometown [VIDEO]
Greeneville, Tenn., a small town of 14square miles and a population of 15,000 folks, is the hometown of one of country music's hottest groups, The Band Perry. The Band Perry consists of a sister and two brothers has made their mark on the country music industry, for sure.I was fortunate enough to meet Kimberly Perry and her brothers, Neil and Reid, at a St. Jude "Country Cares" seminar in Memphis, three years ago. They visited the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with the rest of the "radio" people and also and sang for the hundreds of representatives from country stations who were at the seminar. I think, we all knew then, the Band Perry was the real thing.
The Band Perry is showing their appreciation to their small hometown of Greeneville, TN., by putting on a free concert for the town, while launching their second album, "Pioneer", on March 30th.
Here's what Neil Perry told ABC News Radio:
"Well, we did it last time, when we released our first album. So, it's really great to kind of give back to Greeneville, [which has] given us so much. You know, they've supported us through everything. So, this is our kind of thank you to them."
The show will be at a perfect time, since their new album will drop on April 2nd. It's great to see that the Band Perry has not forgotten where they came from. The band's latest album "Pioneer" is all about the journey they've had, and the journey they have ahead of them. Keeping humble seems to be the Band Perry's motto.
The free concert is presented by the "Greene County Partnership" which raises awareness for “Outnumber Hunger.” The guys are working alongside General Mills "Outnumber Hunger" which is an initiative from General Mills, Big Machine Label Group and Feeding America. In its second year, Outnumber Hunger helps fight hunger in local communities by helping Feeding America gather meals for its network of local food banks. Concert attendees also will have the opportunity to help Feeding America through special on-site activities.
The Band Perry, doing great things through their music, and giving of their time -- that's what country music is all about!
