The Band Perry Relishes Their Opry Experience
The Band Perry has experienced some very nice things since they came on the country music scene; number one songs, great tours and a future that's very, very bright. But the three siblings were most impressed with the experience of performing on the Ryman stage.
Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry have come a long way, really, really fast. But they've earned all the attention and the honors and (of course) all the fans. And speaking of the fans, how about the fact that the band sold out 23 hundred tickets to the Opry in just 20 minutes? That's one of the fastest sell-outs in the history of the Opry.
And we're not talking about just ANY venue. In fact the Ryman stage is the kind of venue that makes new country acts quake. The Ryman Auditorium, for more than two decades, hosted radio’s longest-running show ever, the Grand Ol' Opry.
“It’s an amazing thing. So much of our creative efforts have come inside Nashville," Kimberly Perry told The Tennessean.
“And it’s the center of our creativity. We so much revere that (Ryman) stage. And I feel like there’s an amazing spirit about that place.”
It will certainly be a momentous occasion for them, but they've been there before, just not as a single performing act. They've been included in numerous nights of entertainment at the Ryman.
Look for more information on the Band's appearance as it draws nearer in February.
