The Band Perry Takes Top Spot Billboard Country Chart for 2nd Consecutive Week
The Band Perry is at the top with "Better Dig Two," taking the #1 spot on the Billboard Country Chart for a second consecutive week and also making the ascend to #1 on Mediabase. "Better Dig Two" has also rooted itself in the #1 spot on both Nielsen BDS Canada Country National Airplay and Mediabase Canada Country Airplay charts for the second consecutive week, showing the staying power of The Band Perry's first #1 single in that country. The fastest-rising single of their career has sold over one million copies and also marks the sibling trio's third chart-topper.
The lead single's success sets a phenomenal tone for The Band Perry's new album, PIONEER, which is slated for release April 2 on Republic Nashville. Amid rave reviews on the first track, the highly-anticipated sophomore project has been named one of Entertainment Weekly's "12 Albums We Can't Wait For." Producer Dann Huff showcases the family trio's signature mix of Country and Rock & Roll sounds, creative lyrics and robust musicality. The trio is giving fans a preview of the new music while on the road with Rascal Flatts' CHANGED TOUR.
Adding to the excitement, The Band Perry received an ACM nomination for Vocal Group of the Year just last week. The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast on Sunday (4/7) at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
Siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry quickly catapulted into the mainstream with the success of their Quadruple-Platinum, breakout hit "If I Die Young." In 2011, the tune took the #1 position on both Country and AC charts as well as earned 2011 CMA Single AND Song of the Year. Their success continued with Platinum-certified "You Lie" and the Gold-certified, #1 smash "All Your Life." The Band Perry has won multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Music Awards as well as GRAMMY, TEEN CHOICE, AMA, ACA and Billboard Music Award nominations.
