A film crew from Country Music Television (CMT) was in Greeneville on Thursday afternoon to shoot video footage of a few of the "favorite haunts" of The Band Perry.

The footage will used in conjunction with a CMT television spotlight on The Band Perry called "The Bing."

The Band Perry consists of sibling musicians Kimberly Perry, Neil Perry and Reid Perry.

They are the children of Greeneville pediatrician Steve Perry and his wife, Marie. The family has lived in Greene County since 2002.

Tim Hardiman, a producer with CMT Insider, said an exact date and time for the airing of the CMT program on The Band Perry has not yet been decided.

However, he said he did expect the air time to be within a month.


The past year has been filled with success for the siblings.

Not only did they release their debut album, but they also received their first Grammy Award nomination for their single, "If I Die Young."

The 53rd annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast at 8 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 13, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles by CBS.


Joining Hardiman in Greeneville to gather the footage Thursday was CMT Insider correspondent Adam Black, director of photography Jim Johnson, and audio engineer Jody Richardson.

In the early afternoon on Thursday, the film crew was at the Greeneville Antique Market, located on W. Depot Street, in downtown Greeneville.

From there, Hardiman said, they planned to visit the Monterrey Mexican Restaurant, then travel to the Lower Paint Creek Recreation Area, in southern Greene County.


Rebecca Tarlton Wolfe, who co-owns Greeneville Antique Market with her sister Vickie Tarlton Gregory, said she is thrilled to again be part of The Band Perry's story on a major country music cable television network.

Wolfe said the store certainly would not be able to afford the type of advertising that they have been graciously given by the band.

The downtown Greeneville antique store was also shown during a televised feature about the band's hometown which aired on the Great American Country (GAC) cable channel.

Kimberly Perry was interviewed inside the store in that feature.

Wolfe said that a man from California called the store after seeing the GAC interview and asked about a lamp that he noticed in the footage.


The Band Perry is scheduled to hit the road this spring and summer with country music superstar Tim McGraw. The group toured in the fall of 2010 with Alan Jackson, another top country singing star.

The siblings are scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Jan. 28 and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Jan. 31.

Organizers for the annual Rogersville Fourth of July Celebration announced earlier this week that they have booked the sibling trio to perform at this year's event, which is scheduled for Saturday, July 2.

"Our committee has been meeting and keeping in touch since last July," said Dr. Blaine Jones, chairman of the Rogersville event.

"Jefferson Fairchild has been working the phones to try and find us a really good entertainer. I think he may have hit a home run with this year's group," Jones said.

The Rogersville Fourth of July Celebration is a free day of entertainment and music made possible through public and private donations and sponsorships.
