ABOUT KEITH URBAN:
Keith Urban’s seventh studio album FUSE, his fourth #1 album, marked the first time that a male Country artist has debuted atop the all-genre charts in the United States, Canada and Australia. FUSE’s first single, “Little Bit of Everything” took the top spot on the Country Singles Chart, as did “We Were Us”, featuring Miranda Lambert, which gave Urban a streak of five consecutive #1 songs (dating back to 2011’s “Without You”).  In fact, with the current top 5 performance of FUSE’s fifth single “Raise ‘Em Up” (featuring Eric Church), Keith extended his lead as the artist with the most consecutive top 10 songs on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart, a streak which started in August of 2000.

Urban was the first Country artist to be named an American Idol judge, a role he will reprise for the show in its 14th season, and is a four-time GRAMMY® Award winner who has also won a People’s Choice, American Music Award and been nominated for a Golden Globe. He’s won eleven Academy of Country Music Awards and has had 17 #1 songs and five consecutive platinum or multi-platinum albums. In 2012 he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

ABOUT THE BAND PERRY:
GRAMMY® Award-winning family trio The Band Perry is one of the most dynamic acts in music today. Their 2010 self-titled, platinum-certified debut album offered up 5 hit singles, including the sextuple-platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young,” the platinum hits “All Your Life” and “You Lie,” the gold-certified “Postcard from Paris,” and “Hip to My Heart.” 

On the band’s gold-certified second album Pioneer, front woman Kimberly Perry and her younger brothers Reid and Neil delved deeper into an edgy, rock-and-roll-inspired sound while staying true to their Southern roots.  Featuring the platinum #1 singles “Better Dig Two” and “DONE.”, Pioneer found the band widening their appeal and continuing to showcase their breathtaking three-part harmonies.

In February 2015, the band won the GRAMMY® Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their spirited rendition of country legend Glen Campbell’s “Gentle On My Mind.”  They have also earned three CMA awards, three ACM awards and three CMT awards.

The Band Perry recently wrapped their first headlining world tour and are currently working on new music for their upcoming third studio album.  www.thebandperry.com.
