The Band Perry has been one of the hottest names in country music for a couple of years now. If this trio were not then the group would not be selling out huge venues while still be on tour for the self-titled debut album. The Band Perry tickets are available for the last few North American concert dates of 2012, with the last show on this continent coming at the end of October and a brief jaunt to Scandinavia and the UK to close out the year.
This is not a reason to lament, for the group has been working on a follow up album with the help of famed-producer Rick Rubin. Rubin has worked with everyone from Johnny Cash to Public Enemy to Dixie Chicks to Rage Against the Machine. Now he has taken to crafting an album that will be anything but a sophomore slump. A single has yet to be released, but the record is expected to be released by the end of the year, meaning a new single is right around the way.
In the meantime, the Band Perry’s Kimberly will be performing with Luke Bryan at the CMA Music Festival. It is country’s night to rock and in Kimberly Perry the organizers have chosen a singer who embodies everything to love about country music with a pop infusion that is attracting millions of those under 35 years of age the industry once so desperately tried to court.
Expect great things from the trio, as this group was discovered by Garth Brook’s manager. If any record label needs a guaranteed hit maker, it should follow the advice of a man associated with the biggest commercial hit the music genre has ever known. Thus, the Band Perry tickets will be country concerts for years to come with a catalog of platinum albums and number one hits for Republic Nashville. “If I Die Young” will only be the first multi-platinum single and the first on the group’s initial greatest hits compilation album.
