The Band Perry, an American country music group, is composed of Kimberly Perry (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano) and her two brothers, Reid Perry (bass guitar, background vocals) and Neil Perry (mandolin, drums, accordion, background vocals). In 2008, The Band Perry was discovered by Garth Brooks' manager Bob Doyle, who helped them make recordings. The recordings were sent to Scott Borchetta, head of the newly-established Republic Nashville label.

The band signed to Republic Nashville in August 2009 and released their debut single “Hip to My Heart.” All three members wrote it with Brett Beavers. The song peaked at #20 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. A self-titled EP followed in April 2010. After “Hip to My Heart” fell from the charts, the group released its second single, “If I Die Young,” which Kimberly wrote.

“If I Die Young” and “Hip to My Heart” were included on the band's self-titled debut album, released in 2010. The album was produced by Paul Worley and Nathan Chapman and reached #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and #4 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. “If I Die Young” reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart and was certified platinum. It was also nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Song. The band also received a Grammy nomination for Top New Vocal Duo or Group. The albums third single, “You Lie,” was released in 2011 and reached #6 on the Billboard Hot Country Song chart.
