“YOU LIE” GOES GOLD AS ALBUM NEARS PLATINUMJuly 21, 2011
The Band Perry is on a Gold streak! Their latest hit single, �â��You Lie,�â�� has now earned Gold certification from the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000. The single recently rose to #2 on both the Billboard Country Albums Chart and the USA Today/Country Aircheck powered by Mediabase Chart.
�â���â��You Lie�â�� is full of spitfire and it�â��s our high-five to everyone who�â��s been the victim of a cheatin�â�� heart,�â�� explained The Band Perry. �â��Only in Country music could a song about feeling fed-up be so much fun to sing. When we perform this one, we get a big �â��amen!�â�� back and we thank everyone who has joined in.�â��
�â��Plain and simple�â��¦this song has more hooks than a tackle box!�â�� said Jimmy Harnen, Republic Nashville President.
This is the latest plaque for the Perrys, whose debut album, THE BAND PERRY, went Gold four months after its release on Republic Nashville. Additionally, their megahit, �â��If I Die Young,�â�� went Platinum, then Double Platinum recently �â�� a testament to the song�â��s undeniable universal appeal.
The album, which is currently on course to go Platinum by year�â��s end, contains radio hits �â��Hip To My Heart,�â�� �â��If I Die Young,�â�� �â��You Lie,�â�� and the upcoming love ballad, �â��All Your Life.�â�� Album-only gems include the Perry-penned �â��Independence�â�� and the crowd-pleasing rocker, �â��Double Heart.�â��
As TBP�â��s crowds grow, the trio has been embraced across genres. With hit singles on Country radio (�â��You Lie�â��) as well as Pop radio and VH1 (�â��If I Die Young�â��), they have been chosen to headline one of the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush 2011 concerts along with Coldplay, Lenny Kravitz and Luke Bryan. Excerpts from the band�â��s live show in Dallas on August 8 will air on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on August 17.
They are currently nominated for two Teen Choice Awards in the categories of Choice Country Group and Choice Country Single (�â��If I Die Young�â��). Fans can vote each day at www.teenchoiceawards.com. The special will air live Sunday, August 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. TBP’s sweep of fan-voted awards began last April, when they earned the coveted ACM Award for New Artist of the Year. Most recently at the 2011 CMT Music Awards, The Band Perry earned the
Breakthrough Video trophy and was chosen as Country music’s best new live act in a category sponsored by Nationwide Insurance.
Currently on the road with Tim McGraw and looking forward to dates with Keith Urban (September) and Reba McEntire (October), The Band Perry has become a captivating headlining act in their own right, as recent attendance reports attest.
