The Band Perry Sells Out Ryman In ... 20 Minutes

Twenty minutes was all it took Friday morning for The Band Perry to sell out the Ryman Auditorium.

There were 2,300 tickets available for the band’s Feb. 20 show at the historic Nashville venue, which was once the home of the Grand Ole Opry.

The immediate response to their upcoming show echoes the overwhelming welcome the sibling trio has received from country music fans nationwide since their debut self-titled album was released last October, a news release from the band said on Friday.

In the Friday edition of the Nashville newspaper, The Tennessean, Kimberly Perry, lead vocalist for the trio that also includes her brothers Reid and Neil, spoke emotionally about headlining the historic Ryman venue in a city that has already given them so much support.

“It’s an amazing thing. So much of our creative efforts have come inside Nashville — and it’s the center of our creativity,” Perry said.

“We so much revere that (Ryman) stage. And I feel like there’s an amazing spirit about that place,” she added.

While The Band Perry has previously performed on the Ryman stage during the Grand Ole Opry and other multi-artist events, the Feb. 20 performance will be their debut as headliners at the famous auditorium, the release said.

Prior to their Nashville show, the Perrys will be performing closer to their hometown of Greeneville on Saturday, Oct. 8, when they open for country music superstar Reba McEntire at the Foothills Fall Festival, in Maryville.

The Band Perry is scheduled to perform at 7 p.m., followed by McEntire at 8:30 p.m.

TBP will be joined on the Saturday show’s opening lineup by another musical act with Greeneville connections, J.J. Sarden and his band The Jaystorm Project, which is scheduled to perform at 3:45 p.m.

A former Greeneville resident and a graduate of North Greene High School, Sarden and his group were originally scheduled to perform at the festival on Sunday evening, but their performance date was recently changed by the event organizers to Saturday evening.

Other acts on the Saturday lineup include: The Deep End Band, Dirty Gunnz, Atomic Horns and Steel Magnolia.

If you haven’t already bought your tickets for the Foothills Fall Festival, however, you may be out of luck, because the Saturday and Sunday shows of the three-day event are already sold out, according to the event’s website.

Reserved seat tickets for Friday evening, which will feature country music performer Sara Evans, are still available by calling toll-free 1-877-995-9961.
