Greeneville's 'Band Perry' No. 1 On 2 Major Charts

The Band Perry's single "If I Die Young," has hit No. 1 on both the Billboard and the Mediabase/Country Aircheck country singles charts, it was announced on Monday.

"If I Die Young" is on the trio's debut album and is the first time that the locally-based group has been No. 1 on a major music industry chart.

"The song was No. 3 last week," said their father, Dr. Steve Perry, who notified The Greeneville Sun on Monday afternoon of the group's recent achievement.

Both charts are "quite significant," he said, so it is certainly an honor to make it to No. 1 on both charts simultaneously.

The country music trio consists of lead singer Kim Perry and her two brothers, Neil Perry and Reid Perry.

The family has called Greeneville home since they moved here in 2002, from Mobile, Ala.

Dr. Perry, who is a pediatrician at Greene Mountain Pediatrics, said he and his wife, Marie, were happy to have their children home for a few days over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. (The family were seen Saturday morning enjoying breakfast together at Ma & Pa's Family Restaurant on the Asheville Highway.)


Following their visit home, the Perrys headed to Canada where they are visiting radio stations this week, their father said.

He said this is the group's first visit to Canada, where "If I Die Young" is currently at No. 17 on the Canadian charts.

The single is also doing well in Australia, where it was listed as No. 2 last week behind Australian native Keith Urban, Dr. Perry added.

After concluding their Canadian visit on Friday, Dr. Perry said the band will go to Indiana for a show on Saturday and will then leave for Las Vegas to attend the inaugural American Country Awards show on Monday, Dec. 6.


The Band Perry is being considered for three awards at the ACA show, which will air live that evening, beginning at 8 p.m. (EST) on the Fox network.

The trio has been nominated in the following categories:

* "New/Breakthrough Artist of the Year," which also includes Easton Corbin, Jerrod Neimann, Jaron and the Long Road to Live and Danny Gokey;

* Vocal Duo/Group of the Year, along with Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band and Sugarland, and

* Video by New/Breakthrough Artist for "If I Die Young," which also includes nominees Easton Corbin, for "Little More Country Than That"; Steel Magnolia, for "Keep On Lovin' You"; Jerrod Niemann, for "Lover, Lover"; and Laura Bell Bundy, for "Giddy On Up."

All winners for these awards will be determined by fan voting.
