The Alabama trio began touring together when Kimberly was a solo-act with Reid and Neil, then 8 and 10, serving as her opening act. They put their forces together in 2005 and booked tour dates as The Band Perry on the New Faces of Country Tour in 2005. They were finally discovered in 2008 by Garth Brooks' manager and were signed to fledging Nashville start-up label Republic Nashville. The cultivation process was short and in 2009, The Band Perry released their debut single "Hip to My Heart" and due to the success quickly put a record together. They released a self-titled EP in April, 2009 to capitalize on a hit single while forging ahead in the studio and with tour dates.
By 2010, The Band Perry became formidable country stars when "If I Die Young" hit country radio. The single was a massive triumph becoming the act's first #1 single and receiving a double-Platinum certification. The single brought The Band Perry commercial success and they were lauded by the country music community. In 2011, the group was awarded the Top New Artist and Top New Duo awards at the Academy of Country Music ceremonies and they were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Song.
The Band Perry scored another country hit in 2011 with "You Lie" off their self-titled debut album which has since been certified Gold. The Band Perry was last year's breakout success and they are currently riding the wave of their monumental debut.
