During their career, Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry have earned multiple awards from the likes of The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, the American Country Awards and the Academy of Country Music, and in February 2015, they captured their first GRAMMY® Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. The Band Perry were also named ambassadors for Teen Cancer America – a charity founded by The Who’s Roger Daltrey – and in 2016 their single “Live Forever” was the official song of Team USA at the Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro.
The Band Perry concert is supported by Mane & Tail, along with media partner Cat Country 96. Other Sands Steel Stage headliners announced so far include Santana Aug. 4, Toby Keith Aug. 10 and Lee Brice and Justin Moore Aug. 12.
