In a surprise celebration backstage at the taping of their first "CMT Crossroads," Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry of The Band Perry were presented with gold plaques for their sophomore album, "Pioneer," by Big Machine Label Group President and CEO Scott Borchetta, Republic Nashville President and Big Machine Label Group EVP Jimmy Harnen and album producer Dann Huff.

The Band Perry has ascended to dizzying heights since releasing their self-titled debut album on Republic Nashville in 2010, which scored the sibling trio a string of hits, including the quadruple-platinum "If I Die Young" (No. 1 on Billboard's Country and AC charts); platinum "You Lie" and gold "All Your Life" (No. 1 Country). Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid, the band has amassed more than 10.3 million tracks sold from its platinum debut and gold sophomore release "Pioneer," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 2 All Genre.


In addition to acclaim from top critics across the country, "Pioneer" has produced two consecutive No. 1 country smashes: the platinum "Better Dig Two" and gold "DONE.," which earned Neil and Reid their first chart-topper as songwriters. Their current single, "Don't Let Me Be Lonely," is already in the Top 25 at country radio.

The Band Perry have also enjoyed sold-out headlining dates and will embark on their first global headline dates - We Are Pioneers World Tour - beginning Nov. 8. Additionally, they have taken over the American television airwaves with performances on the ACMs, CMAs, Grammys and Billboard Music Awards, as well as "American Idol," "Good Morning America," "The Today Show," "Ellen," "The Talk," "The Arsenio Hall Show," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Late Show with David Letterman." Their showering of honors include multiple ACM, CMA, and CMT Music Awards, as well as Grammy, Teen Choice, AMA, ACA, and Billboard Music Award nominations - all of which has cemented the sibling trio as one of the hottest acts in recent history.

Currently, the trio is nominated for Vocal Group of the Year at the CMA Awards, airing Nov. 6 on ABC. On Nov. 29 at 10 p.m., Fall Out Boy will join The Band Perry for a mash-up of songs and stories during "CMT Crossroads." For tour dates and more, visit thebandperry.com / thefansperry.com.
