Ribfest announces the Academy of Country Music 2014 Vocal Group of the Year winner The Band Perry will headline on July 5th.
Online PR News – 27-January-2015 – Naperville, IL – In announcing the gold and platinum winning group, Ribfest chair Bob Pschirrer said, “This group moves our music up a notch and we feel our Ribfest music fans will agree”. Don Emery, Marketing Chair noted, “The Band Perry is a terrific, high energy country music act that will make a great connection to Ribfest music fans.”
The Band Perry has achieved both massive mainstream success and major critical acclaim since delivering their platinum self-titled debut. Introducing the sibling trio as a powerful new force on the country scene, 2010’s The Band Perry offered up five hit singles, including the quintuple-platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young” and other platinum hits – the #1 “All Your Life” and “You Lie” – as well as “Hip to My Heart” and “Postcard from Paris.” For the band’s gold-certified second album Pioneer, frontwoman Kimberly Perry and her younger brothers Reid and Neil delved deeper into an edgy, rock-and-roll-inspired sound while staying true to their Southern roots. Featuring the platinum #1 single “Better Dig Two” and the gold #1 “DONE.” (plus smash hits “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw”), Pioneer found The Band Perry widening their appeal and continuing to showcase their breathtaking three-part harmonies.
They have earned multiple awards from the likes of The Academy of Country Music, The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, and The American Country Awards. They have also received nominations from The American Music Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, and the Grammy Awards. They were named Vocal Group of the Year by the ACM in 2014.
