The Band Perry

Friday, April 29

8 p.m.; Doors at 7 p.m.

Tickets: GA prices starting at $35; Reserved prices starting at $60

Grammy Award-winning sibling trio The Band Perry has proven to be an unstoppable presence in music, matching its major critical acclaim with massive mainstream success. Within years of making their platinum-selling self-titled debut, front woman Kimberly Perry and her brothers Reid and Neil Perry have already shown the history-defying power of their colossal appeal, playing sold-out shows around the world. In 2010, the band delivered five hit singles: the sextuple-platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young,” the platinum-selling “You Lie,” “All Your Life,” “Hip to My Heart” and the gold-certified “Postcard from Paris.” For its gold-certified follow-up album Pioneer, The Band Perry delved deeper into an edgy, rock ‘n’ roll-inspired sound while staying true to its southern roots, offering up the platinum-selling No. 1 singles “Better Dig Two” and “DONE” as well as smash hits “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw.” Kicking off the We Are Pioneers World Tour in late 2013, the trio quickly established themselves as an incendiary live act and global powerhouse, playing hundreds of venues from Seattle to Sweden. Throughout 2014, The Band Perry built on that momentum by making appearances on major TV and award shows. By 2015, the group had earned multiple awards including a Grammy Award for Best Country Duo / Group Performance.

Tickets: Sold out

Formed by lead vocalist and guitarist Robert Smith, The Cure released its debut album Three Imaginary Boys in 1979 to great acclaim just one year after signing with Chris Parry’s new label, Fiction Records. Over the years, The Cure became known for its change of sound, ranging from punk and goth rock to pop and electronic dance music. In addition to its sound, the band also experienced a changing lineup with band members constantly leaving and returning to the group. After more than two decades with its original label, The Cure decided to leave and sign with international label Geffen Records in 2003. Designed to appeal to a young audience, the band released its first album for Geffen and followed it up with a North American tour featuring a number of younger bands including Interpol, Mowai, The Rapture and Muse. Over the next couple of the years, The Cure played at various festivals around the world until taking a break in 2008. After a three-year hiatus, the group began touring again and playing at festivals in Europe, North America and South America. In 2014, lead singer Smith announced that The Cure would release a new album, a follow-up to the 4:13 Dream album, as well as begin a new tour, playing three of its earlier albums in their entirety.

The album featured popular singles “Animal” and “Burial” as well as remixes of the songs by various artists including Benny Blanco, Crookers, DJ Mehdi and Treasure Fingers. Considered a commercial success, the group’s album transformed the current music scene and inspired other artists to follow its innovative approach. In 2012, Miike Snow founded the indie label INGRID with Swedish performers Dungen, Peter Bjorn and John and Lykke Li before unveiling its sophomore album Happy To You. For the next two years, the band took a hiatus to focus on solo projects before reuniting in Los Angeles in late 2014. There, the band created the first five songs of its third studio album iii. Bouncing back between Los Angeles, New York and Stockholm, the trio finished the album the summer of 2015. Featuring the flagship single “Genghis Khan,” the album is considered to showcase “the original Miike Snow sound but taken to the next level.”

ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp is in session this week in Nashville, Tenn. with campers from around the country participating in a week of activities and excursions around Music City.  The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education.

On Wednesday, reigning ACM Song of the Year winner Lee Brice visited the campers during a recording session, where they recorded their original song, “Bright Eyes” with producer Ross Copperman at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios.  The campers wrote the song on Monday during a songwriting session with The Band Perry.  Later that day, ACM New Artist nominee Brett Eldredge and multiple ACM award winner Wynonna dropped by and participated in a karaoke event at Winner’s with the campers.

The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Music Camp and the 5th year that ACM Lifting Lives has been involved.

The rockin’ tune samples Rascal Flatts and a little bit of that Hunter Hayes charm, but is neatly wrapped in the trio’s own groovy style.This new radio-friendly pop-leaning tune is sure to get Music Row’s undivided attention.”- Jason Scott, Reporter at Nashville Gab

“Tailspin” is now available on iTunes HERE along with all other respected online retailers.

The Festival will broadcast LIVE across Clear Channel radio stations in 150 markets nationwide, and this year will air as a two night special on The CW Network on Sept. 30 (night one) at 8-10 p.m. ET/PT and Oct. 1 (night two) at 8-10 p.m. ET/PT, to launch the network’s fall season.

And year after year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival produces more and more of music’s most memorable moments. Now, with the addition of the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village featuring even more artists, this year will push those limits even further — it’s going to be incredible.”

Promotion of 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival kicked off this morning with a simultaneous roadblock announcement by all 850 Clear Channel radio stations nationwide, their websites and iHeartRadio.

I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this must-see, one-of-a-kind total music experience.”

About Tim McGraw
For 20 years, McGraw has been providing that kind of powerful connection with his audience. With Two Lanes of Freedom, his new album—and first release for Big Machine Records—the singer is covering his broadest emotional range yet, with a set of songs that looks forward and back, gets deep and gets loose, and reveals that even the biggest stars can continue to grow with consistency and maturity.

 

In his record-shattering career, McGraw has sold more than 40 million albums, and dominated the charts with 33 No. 1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMYs, 15 Academy of Country Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards, and 10 American Music Awards, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in such films as “The Blind Side,” “Country Strong,” and “Friday Night Lights”—as well as hosting Saturday Night Live, a rare honor for a singer in any genre. McGraw has never been afraid of breaking new ground; over the years, he has collaborated with musicians from Nelly to Tony Bennett to Def Leppard and Ne-Yo.

Performers:
For more than four decades, John Fogerty has been an American treasure.  As one of the most revered and influential artists to emerge in the 1960s, he continues to be a vital part of the musical landscape. As lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Creedence Clearwater Revival and as a Grammy-winning, chart-topping solo artist, Fogerty’s sound has encompassed everything from blues to country to southern swamp rock and roll. He has sold over 100 million records, earning 18 Gold Albums and 10 Platinum Albums.  Known as one of the greatest songwriters, singers and guitarists of all time, Fogerty was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, won the Grammy Award for his album BLUE MOON SWAMP in 1997 and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005. Fogerty will release his ninth solo album WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE – a celebration of his iconic songbook recorded in collaboration with some of today’s biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds plus two new songs – on May 28, 2013.

 

Faith Hill has established herself as one of the music industry’s top vocalists, with a voice that is as powerful as it is recognizable.  Her career has been highlighted by the sale of over 30 million records worldwide, during which time she has celebrated thirteen #1 singles and twenty #1 videos.  Faith has won fifteen Academy Of Country Music awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year in 1998, 1999 and 2000, Single Record of the Year for “This Kiss” in 1998, and the ACM Career Achievement Award in 2006, among many others.

 

Since releasing their multi-week #1, DOUBLE PLATINUM debut single, “Cruise,” breakout duo Florida Georgia Line (Tyler Hubbard from Monroe, Georgia and Brian Kelley from Ormond Beach, Florida) has been quickly garnering buzz among fans, media and several Superstars across genres, including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and GRAMMY-winning Hip Hop artist Nelly, with who they have teamed up on a “Cruise” remix. FGL’s GOLD-certified “Get Your Shine On” is Top 10-and-rising at Country radio. Their energetic live show and compelling tunes landed them coveted opening slots on Taylor Swift’s “THE RED TOUR” and Luke Bryan’s “DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR” this year. The Republic Nashville duo brings a fresh combination of eclectic beats and expressive lyrics to the genre. Producer Joey Moi showcases their unique sound throughout their GOLD-certified debut album, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES, which earned the highest debut album sales of 2012 for a new Country artist. They have appeared on LIVE with Kelly & Michael, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, FOX & Friends and secured a presenter spot during the 2012 American Music Awards.

 

Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum superstar, entrepreneur, actor, and philanthropist NELLY is on top of the world once more. He’s gearing up to release his long-awaited seventh full-length studio album, M.O., later this year. Already, the hit single “Hey Porsche” has laid the groundwork for another smash from the artist.  Upon the song’s debut, it moved over 100,000 digital singles in less than week. “Hey Porsche” also marks NELLY’s 22nd charted Top 40 song, which makes him the 11th most-charted Top 40 hits artist of all-time. Internationally, the song has reached gold status in the UK already, hitting #4 on iTunes and entering heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1. Meanwhile, down under in Australia, it’s been certified platinum. Other chart positions include #8 on iTunes in Ireland, and it’s climbing in Belgium, Germany, and beyond. However, “Hey Porsche” isn’t the only anthem on M.O.  Nelly also teamed up with production powerhouses such as Pharrell (Jay Z, Snoop, Justin Timberlake), Rico Love (Beyonce, Usher), DJ Frank E (Kanye West, Enrique Iglesias, FloRida), Detail (Lil Wayne, T-Pain), Da Internz (Rihanna, Nas), and Bei-Major. Nelly also invited some of his closest friends and today’s hottest artists to collaborate including Trey Songz, T.I., Akon, Pitbull, and Florida Georgia Line. M.O. is shaping up to be one of the hottest hip-hop events of 2013.

 

The Band Perry returns to the ACM Awards this year with their third Vocal Group of the Year nomination, just two short years after they were honored with the New Artist of the Year award in 2011. The sibling trio’s sophomore album Pioneer will be released on April 2, 2013 and has already spawned the smash, RIAA Certified Platinum single, “Better Dig Two,” which quickly became the # 1 Billboard Hot Country Song, making it the fastest-rising song of the band’s career.  It is their third chart-topping single landing at #1 on the Country Radio Charts for two consecutive weeks.  The Band Perry is currently on Rascal Flatts’ “Changed Tour.”
