Band Perry: county fair and then Grammys

When The Band Perry performs at the Manatee County Fair on Jan. 20 expect a major sing along when it comes time for “If I Die Young.” The breakthrough single by siblings Kimberly (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Reid (bass guitar) and Neil Perry (drums, mandolin and accordion) has been one of the most played on country radio this past year. The poignant ballad found on the band’s self-titled debut album takes maudlin subject matter and imbues it with touching positivity. Over a fiddle-laced melody Kimberly reflects on a life well lived in a manner that’s instantly endearing.
